First mini challenge! And then back to reading!
Where are you reading from today? Home; probably move around a bit. I think mum is going to be basically in the family room the whole time. I'll be coming back to the computer to blog, since I'm not lucky enough to have a laptop.
3 facts about me …
-I'm not a very good blogger. My mom convinced me to start a blog a long time ago, but I've never kept up with it very well. So hopefully I'll do okay for the next 24 hours. I worry that with my slow blogging skills, I'll spend more time blogging than reading!
-I like music. A lot. Okay, that's an understatement. I play several instruments, although clarinet is the only one I play really well. I like to write music, as well.
-I'm participating in this Read-A-Thon with my mom! Kind of fun, really. She hopes that we'll be able to keep each other up at night. Might help. :)
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I have 12 books (4 of which are audio) that we picked up from the library yesterday, plus 1 that I started yesterday, plus one signed copy of The Host. Some of them are rather short, and some of them are of an average length. Somehow, I don't think I'll run out of things to read any time soon...
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? I made an official goal in my last post to read 5 books. I'd actually not thought about a goal for blogging, so here it is: I'd also like to leave 25ish comments on others' blogs. This is probably going to be the hardest part for me.
Any advice for people doing this for the first time? I didn't do it last year, but mom did. From what I heard from her, it's better to start small at first and keep some short books for the end when you're too tired to focus on a long one.
I'm way excited for this!
