Plotting a Mini Read-a-Thon

by Ann-Katrina

Last year’s Read-a-Thon was my first ever and I’m not completely ashamed to admit that I didn’t do so well, only a little. So, I’ve decided to get some practice in before the next one. And this Sunday seems like the perfect day to do it.

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve not had as much time to read as I would have liked and the time I did spend reading was spent reading non-fiction and memoirs. Granted, I do enjoy non-fiction and memoirs quite a bit, but everything in moderation, right?

Come Sunday at 9am, I will be reading from a selection of fiction titles. The goal is to read at least four books (horror, literary, fantasy, chick lit—mixin’ it up so I won’t get bored) and at least two short stories in a twelve hour period. I’ll take a break every three hours to update the blog on my progress and post some book notes.

Now that I’ve put it down in writing, it seems completely doable. I hope. Wish me luck, and company is always welcome if you want to participate too.

(I hope when I’m done this time around, the Sunday Sketch will display a bit more effort than the last one.)

    I too am really behind on my reading. Hopefully your mini read-a-thon goes well for you.

    Good luck! I would have loved to joined in but I’m not sure if it’s doable with a read-a-thon here. I don’t think my four year old would have excepted that LOL But it sounds really fun!

    I can’t believe you are going to try and read 4 books and 2 short stories in a twelve hour period! OMG! Good for you. I just don’t read that fast.

    Thank you ladies for the well wishes. As it comes down to the final hour, I’m starting to feel the nerves, but there’s no backing out now. :)

    @Karin: I’m not that fast of a reader either, so I plan to read short books if possible (think 150-200 pages).
