Dewey's 24-hour Read-A-Thon warm-up

It is 7:34 am here on Long Island and I am getting ready to start reading. Can I just tell you how excited I am? I am almost jumping out of my socks :-). Anyway, I was thinking how to go about the whole Read-A-Thon thing, the updates, the books, the snacks and all that jazz, and I decided to post short updates every 3-4 hours (maybe even not that often). I also for the first time in a very long time will try reading more than one book within one day. I am currently reading Dragon House by John Shors but I will put it aside for the marathon, at least for the beginning of it because it is a very serious novel and I feel I need something light first. Therefore, I am starting with No Wind of Blame by Georgette Heyer and see how it goes.

Breaks: I will be taking breaks every couple of hours to read blogs and write comments. Also, I don't snack or eat while reading, so those breaks will contain my snacking and eating time. I will also have to drop my daughter off and pick her up at the Girl Scouts Halloween party so this will take some times as well.

Okay, I'm off to have some breakfast and I wish you all luck who participate and cheerlead and an awesome Saturday to everybody.
