Gettin' My Read On

So, Saturday is the April edition of the 24 hour readathon. I've only done one other read-a-thon and it kind of failed. Especially because I had several dud books.

This time, a book that doesn't hook me in 50 pages is dumped. I need to get GOIN' guys. No time for "meh" books.

I'm torn as to what I'll read. I've got umm...7 books that I've started and abandoned, but it also seems like the ideal time to tackle sequels, but what about those review books and books I've had on my pile since 2009? So, I'll be winging my pile, probably updating this post every once and a while.

So, feel free to join on! You don't have to be a blogger to do so. And it starts at at Noon GMT time (8 am for EST, 5 am for PST, etc...). I don't know that I'm starting AT 8 am because I tend to stay up late on Friday nights, but it's possible. And I'll definitely be sleeping since I have church at 9 am and my mom wouldn't want me sleeping through that! So that cuts it down to maybe 16 hours total for me? Sucks, but what can you do?

And yeah, that's it. One of these days my review block will break and I'll get you guys good reviews again...I hope. Then these "filler" posts will stop happening.

  2. I'm doing the read-a-thon too!
    16 hours is a good amount of time to read.
    Hope you read some good books too :)
