22 on 22 Read-a-thon

This will be my update post throughout the Read-a-thon so check back here throughout the week to see how I’m doing!

If you read my Sunday Post then you know how crazy this week will be but I will be trying to get a good amount of reading in as there are a ton of books I have that I’d love to read! I won’t set a specific goal though I plan to read a minimum of 10 books and based on their page numbers (of the first ten I plan to read) that only averages out to 452 pages/day, easy! Oh and if you want to interact on twitter use the hashtag #22readathon!

*Took time off on Monday night from 5:45 PM – 10:00 PM CST to have some family time

Here are the first ten I have in mind:

As usual I will be doing the following updates for this read-a-thon:

Book I am currently reading: Wheels by Lorijo Metz

Books I have completed: Burn For Burn by Jenny Han, Owlet by Emma Michaels

Pages Read: 441

Time spent reading: 5 hrs 35 minutes

Mini Challenges Completed: Reading Habits

Snacks Eaten: Chips & Salsa, Orange Juice (1 cup), Mixed Berry Nutri Grain Bar (1), Dr. Pepper (3 cans), Pretzels

Reading Habits

Challenge: Answering general questions about your reading habits.

1. What book did you start reading for this read-a-thon? A: Burn For Burn though I was ~40 pages in

2. What is one of your favorite books to re-read? A: The Lord of the Rings books of course!

3. Do you have a strategy for read-a-thons to maximize your time? A: Not really, I just try to read as much as I can and update hourly if at all possible so I have a general idea of where I’m at.

4. Do you snack while reading? A: As you can see from the list of snacks above I certainly do! I am very careful not to allow any of those snacks to leave residue on the books I read though.

  1. Oh wow you are trying to read a lot of pages per day! Good luck with reading all of those great sounding books. I really can’t wait to see what you think of Hold me Closer Necromancer because I have been trying to decide if I should buy the book or not.

    Thanks for joining us to celebrate Bianca’s Birthday. Happy reading!
