Musing Monday (Oct. 19)

Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about the read-a-thon…


Are you planning on participating in the upcoming 24 Hour Read-a-thon (either as a reader or cheerleader)? Have you made any preparations for the event? And, veterans out there, any tips you’d like to share with the newbies?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.




I am participating in the read-a-thon for the first time and am very excited about it actually. I’ve started piling some books, more than I will ever get through, and have staked out my reading area – I’m going to take over the lounge room … and hope that my net cord reaches.

I’ve yet to actually tell anyone in my house what I’m doing – partly because I’m lucky enough not to have kids to look after, and partly because I’m putting off receiving the “you’re doing what…?” look. I plan on having plenty of booky online people to talk to, however, as I’ve already set up the #readathon and #slumberbash columns in my Tweetdeck for easy access.

As for tips… I have none. Zilch. Nada. I’m just hoping to stay awake. So I’d greatly appreciate any tips from the more experienced read-a-thon-ers.

good luck with the read-a-thon. I would be filed in the "cheer leader" category. I love the beaded bookmarkers. Very pretty.

If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

I'm giving it a shot to, for the first time. I told my husband, but somehow I don't think he believes me.
