Readathon Plans and Preparation

It's almost time!! In about 22 hours, more than 1,500 readers worldwide will crack open a book and enjoy that most sacred of holidays - the 24 Hour Readathon!

Now, there are several important components of readathoning. The first is preparing your space. I plan to figure out which spots in the house are most comfy for reading and make sure that I throw some comfy bookish clothing in the wash so I can dress the part.

Then, of course, we have to talk about snacks. As of now, I'm planning to make some banana chocolate chip muffins tonight for breakfast tomorrow and all-day snacking. Dinner will be Southwest Chicken in the crockpot. If there was ever a day that you truly needed to set it and forget it, it's the day of the Readathon. I will also be taking a quick trip to the store to pick up any snacks that catch my eye. Snacks are very important.

The last and most vital part is the books, of course. Here are the books I hope to read.

The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage
The Best Short Stories of 2013
Tiger Lily

So, tell me your readathon plans! What do you hope to read? What are you going to snack on? Are you doing anything different from previous readathons?


  1. Enjoy your read-a-thon Lindsey!!

  2. Ooooh, I really want to read Glaciers! And graphic novels/comics are always a good choice for flying through pages even when you can't remember your own name at 4am. Happy readathonning tomorrow! :)

  3. Yes, dressing the part and preparing the space is absolutely necessary!! And I really have to get in on this crockpot thing, because it just sounds so convenient. I always get paranoid that if I leave it on all day it might be dangerous. I know that's just me being paranoid though. haha. I am planning to read six books, I posted it on my blog. But my main plan is to stay home most of the day and maybe stepping out to go for a coffee run with my book just to have a change of scenery.
