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
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.
I am going to be participating in two events that are coming up in the next two weeks. The first one is hosted by Pages of Forbidden Love and is a read-a-thon which is celebrating Bianca’s, who is one of the co-bloggers, 22nd birthday which is on October 22nd. They will be doing the read-a-thon from the 22nd through the 28th and will be doing challenges, have prizes and of course involve a ton of reading. If you would like to join, and I highly recommend that you do since it is more fun with a bigger group, you can sign up here http://www.pages-of-forbidden-love.com/2012/10/15/we-are-hosting-our-first-read-a-thon-22-on-22-read-a-thon-sign-ups/!
I am also going to be participating in Haunted Week which is hosted by Cheyenne at This Girl Reads and will be going on from October 24th through the 31st. Each day there will be a post that you can do about something involving Halloween and connected to books. You can do every post they do or do something completely different, though it is preferred that you stick with the scare/Halloween type of theme(s). If you would like to sign up you can do so here http://thisxgirlxreads.blogspot.com/2012/10/haunted-week-is-coming.html! There is more information on that page as well as a link to all of the daily events that will be going on. If you love Halloween or just enjoy being part of a bookish/blog related event then I definitely recommend signing up!
I can’t to participate in both events! It will allow me to post even more than usual but without the worry of trying to come up with something interesting. ^.^ I hope you sign up too and I can’t wait to read a ton and join in on the spooky goodness. As always thanks for reading! 🙂
