If I had 24 hours to read, my goals would be:
I don't think I would set any goals, unless I had something very specific I had to have read by a certain time. Thankfully, this is rare these days. I guess I would just want to put a dent in my TBR pile.
This is what I am going to have to do to get 24 hours of reading:
Well, I am under no delusion that I will read for 24 hours. I'm expecting to get 10 hours, at the most. I'm hoping to get my daughter on board, too, and my son spends entire days outside in the summer. My husband is entrenched in lesson planning for classes he's teaching this summer and a new class in the fall, so I suspect he will be doing a lot of that. There should be very little I have to arrange in order to get my reading time in.
If someone asked me for recommendations of “can’t put down” books for the read-a-thon, I would recommend:
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
The Road (yeah, I know this one is bleak, but I did have a hard time putting it down)
If you participated in the October 2007 read-a-thon:
I didn't participate last October.
I tag anyone who wants to do this...
