Tomorrow’s Readathon, October 2014

A photo of my possible Readathon choices: Maile Meloy's Half In Love, Elizabeth Chadwick's Shields Of Pride, and Paula Lichtarowicz's The First Book Of Calamity Leek

I almost missed the Readathon. Having not been on Twitter much recently and having been away from the blog, I forgot all about it. But I’ve now signed up and am hoping I’ll be more successful than last time when I fell ill at just the wrong moment.

I’ve signed up to be a cheerleader, too, and for the first time. I’ve often wanted to cheer but never knew if I’d be able to uphold the bargain. This time I reckon I will and as I spent so long commenting last time it made sense to make it ‘official’. I’m excited to see how it all works and to be given a formal list.

I don’t have any definite choices for what to read, only a short list of possibilities, including the books in the photo. I actually really like the idea of choosing one long book as suggested here, however as a slow reader it would double the amount of the I’ve-not-read-much feeling.

So yes, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, I’m going to start early as I have previously, and I’ll hopefully get a book read.

Are you joining in?

I’ve not signed up – as I’m not 100% sure of my weekend plans – but I will certainly be reading along if I can :)

Have fun reading away, I think not being sure of what you want to read can be a good thing – widens your options and means nothing can let you down.

I haven’t signed up this time but might join in informally for a while. Have fun and enjoy whatever you decide to read!

Not something I have ever joined in with, Readathons always sound like the require lots of commitment. Good luck.

Good luck — I love the idea of Readathon and have yet to successfully carve out 24 hours to read. This year, I’m celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday, so will be out and about all day. I hope to do some unofficial cheerleading when I can, though.
