I have signed up despite the late notice (I haven't told the highly supportive husband yet). The Read-a-Thon is this Saturday, April 21st, and if you want to sign up, go here. The rest of the site explains all the details (there are few out of date bits), especially the part that says you are NOT required to read for the entire 24 hours. This point is crucial for me because I already have a few commitments that day. For starters, I'll be running a 5K at 8:30 am, but it shouldn't take too long, and I might just get an audiobook started at 8 as I warm up. That could work! I also have the WMaIDWtPATB Challenge that needs a serious jumpstart. I've been bogged down in Michael Pollan's Second Nature for weeks now, it seems. I might also get a few from the library. In fact, I just requested a copy of Salvage the Bones, which has been knocking on my door since Ann Pancake insisted it was the best book of her year.
Now, I just need to make a stack. The Read-a-Thon types recommend shorter, faster, lighter reads to keep me motivated. Apparently, snacks are key. What say you, veterans thonners? Any tips? Also, if you are participating this year, leave me a comment below, so I can know who else is in the trenches with me.
