April Read-a-Thon 2010 - Signed Up!

Exciting news! I have just applied to participate in my very first Read-a-Thon! The Read-a-Thon starts at 3 PM here and I am hoping I will manage to read at least for some 5-6 hours. I have an exam tomorrow at 1 PM, so I doubt I'll be able to start right away, but where there's a will, there's a way!

Here's some of the books I might read tomorrow:

  • Digital Fortress by Dan Brown
  • Without You by Anthony Rapp
  • Ryland's Sacrifice by Kim Dare
  • Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
  • Starting Over by Tony Parsons

Obviously, this is more than I can actually read tomorrow, but I am proud of how diverse this list is, just in case I'm in the mood for any particular genre.

As for updating my progress, I'm definitely going to take the time to write at least one blog post. However, I am still not sure how I'm going to go about doing this, so for now, I think Twitter is the best way to go. If I'm not following you, make sure you let me know and I'll start (there is a Twitter button in the sidebar). We need to be a big happy family tomorrow!

A little advice from a five-timer: Short books. Nice to have a lot to choose from.

Best of luck manana!

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!

You have a great line-up of books -- glad you have a variety so you can choose according to what you're in the mood to read. Very important.

Looks like you are making great headway
Keep up the reading, don’t let that head sway
Eyes on the page and coffee in hand
You’ll be entering a new land.
