I am really excited that I have signed up to participate in the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon this weekend. I could not participate last time because my husband was working weekends and there is no way I can read for 24 hours with a 3 and a 1 year old around. Lucky for me, my husband is not working weekends anymore and is going to take the kids and disappear for most of the day Saturday.
All the details for the Read-a-Thon can be found at The Hidden Side of a Leaf.
Here is the stack of books I have put together. I know I won't read all of these but I wanted a good size stack to keep me going in case one of them starts to put me to sleep. I also have a house full of books and a library across the street in case I need even more variety. Most of the books I have are Juvenile/Middle Grade readers because I thought it would be good to have shorter, less dense books to read. And yes, I might even finally succumb to peer pressure and start reading Twilight (we'll see).
Dewey has a few suggestions for charities to donate to but I picked one that is not on her list. I will be donating $5 for every hour I read to the Perpetual Education Fund. If anyone is interested in sponsoring me you can e-mail me or leave a comment on this post. You can sponsor me for any amount and for either the number of hours I read, number of pages, or number of books I read. Or you can just leave me encouraging comments throughout the day and night to help keep me going!
Things kick off at 8 AM in my time zone on Saturday. I'll be posting updates here and on my Goodreads account which updates to my twitter account so you have several places you can go to follow my progress. :-)
