I haven’ t blogged in almost a year! Goodness. How time and life have just kept going by. I remembered last year’s Readathon and well, that got this thing up and running! This isn’t just something one jumps into. It requires preparation and gathering materials so that I can really dedicated 24 hours to reading and still go on with the rest of my life. Here’s my plan:
- 7 am wake up get ready (breakfast, hygiene, pushups, etc)
- 8am OFFICIAL START TIME on west coast. READ!!
- 10:40 Head to Volunteering (I’ve got an audiobook for the car ride to and from and will have to make up the hour I spend volunteering and not reading)
- 12:30 Head to Gym- (because movement cannot just stop) – Where I will finish my audiobook.
- 1:30 on READ! READ! EAT! READ! NAP? READ!
I’ve even picked out where I will read to keep things interesting: poolside, at Starbucks, on the couch, on the bed, on the couch again, maybe even back to Starbucks. Read-a-thon weekend also marks the first weekend of PlayStation 3 for the husband, so you know, I’ll have plenty of undisturbed time to read.
Here’s my book list:
- Human Physiology Chapters 13 and 24 (to keep things interesting and productive)
- NW by Zadie Smith
- Paths to Recovery
- Art of Character by David Corbett
- Takes One to know one by Amanda Ronan (*MS)
- Holiday in Death by JD Robb *audiobook
- Redbreast by Jo Hensbo
- Fairy Tales from the Brother’s Grim by Philip Pulman (to keep things interesting and to switch things up)
- Lady X’s Cowboy by Zoe Archer
Some of these I won’t be reading straight through, but they will get read and that’s what’s important.
- Hansen’s Ginger Ale
- Goat cheese pizza
- Chicken Taco stew
To finish preparing tonight I need to read for an hour to compensate for the hour I’ll lose tomorrow. I also need to log into twitter, charge the ipod and the kindle, save the Dewey Readathon page as a favorite and turn off the captcha for this blog so that folks can comment!
