It’s Time for the Read-a-thon!

The read-a-thon has just started! My five-year-old is up too so this will be interesting. I have a pot of coffee going and my stack of books are close by. My first read will be:


Shaun Tan’s Lost and Found: Three Books

Hour 1 Meme:

1. Where are you reading from today? I’m reading from Southern California.

2. Three random facts about me: When it comes to the read-a-thon I love cheerleading just as much as I love reading; I’m an English major but if I could, I would probably be an English/psychology/anthropology major, and I love cold stormy weather.

3. How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? About 30 books. I don’t plan on reading them all but it’s nice to have a stack ready.

4. Do you have any goals for today? Just to have fun but it would be nice if I can read 6 books.

5. If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice? Have fun and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Join a few mini-challenges since they are so much fun and prizes are involved.


Happy reading everyone!

    Have fun today! I agree that it’s a good plan to have lots of books to choose from. I have 16 which is still quite a few!

    Finally! I found another readathoner who’s reading children’s literature. Shaun Tan’s The Arrival is in my TBR pile in the next few hours. I am green with envy as I see your Lost & Found, I don’t think we have it here in our neck of the [hot and humid] woods here, but I’d definitely check it out. =)

  9. Christina says:

    Hey, thanks for the message! 🙂 Good luck and happy reading to you too.

  10. Christina says:

    I’m the same. If I had my way, I’d be a geography/economics/history/English major. So hard to pick just two let alone one!

  11. Jillian ♣ says:

    I definitely won’t get six books read! Best of luck to you!! 😀

  12. I’m not that ambitious but 3 books read would be nice.

  13. Michelle says:

    Great minds think alike! I started with this gorgeous piece of work too. 🙂

  14. Anastasia says:

    Happy reading!! Also I’ve noticed you changed your blog’s layout– it looks really swank. 😀 Love the colors!

  15. Amy says:

    6 books is an awesome goal! Good luck!

    I was an English major and am now (in my “old” age) finding my way back to many of the classics I read in college!

    Good Luck today & Happy Reading!

  16. I know I could never finish six real books during the readathon. I sneak in a few children’s picture books and graphic novels to get me through the difficult times.

  17. It’s the eye of the reader, it’s the cream of the fight
    Risin’ up to the challenge of our bloggers
    And the last known survivor stalks his books in the night
    And he’s watchin’ us all in the eye of the tiger

    You can do it and rock the roof off the readathon!!!

  18. Pam says:

    Yay! Shaun Tan! You are doing fantastic keep it up!!

  19. Lisa says:

    That book sound good; I’m adding it to my someday read books! Happy Reading!

  20. Memory says:

    I’ve got some Shaun Tan to read, too. It’ll be my first time with him. I’m excited; so many people love his stuff!

  21. Shanra says:

    Happy reading, Vasilly! I hope you’re enjoying the read-a-thon and your books loads and loads! ❤ (And the blog looks lovely!)

  22. bookmagic says:

    Good luck with this. I’m not really participating but I do want to try and get some good reading in today. I haven’t been reading much and miss it.
