If I had 24 hours to read, be my goals would be:
To read a lot, of course! ;p Seriously, I’m not setting page-count goals or number-of-books-read goals. I’m planning to stay awake the entire time, read a bunch and post lots of updates here. I anticipate that through this event I’ll get to know some of the other book bloggers participating, and I’m looking certainly forward to that.
This is what I am going to have to do to get 24 hours of reading:
Not much. I’ve informed my husband, and he said that he’d still like to sleep, so I probably won’t be playing music over the stereo in the middle of the night. I feel like I also need to make a lomg list of books to have at hand, and I’m also starting to wonder what snacks I’ll want to eat.
If someone asked me for recommendations of “can’t put down” books for the read-a-thon, I would recommend:
This is tough. In my (above) attempt to come up with good books to have available for reading in two weeks, I’ve really struggled with this part — books that I can trust I’ll like, but that I can also trust will be page turners, books that I won’t want to put down. Oh, and not too scary. I’m eagerly reading everyone else’s answers to this question.
If you participated in the October 2007 read-a-thon:
I didn’t. *Sigh.*
For you, what was your favorite part of the October read-a-thon and why?
