Read-A-Thon Ready

Dewey's 24 Hour Read A Thon

Tomorrow is the big day for the Dewey’s Read-a-Thon and I am ready!  This is my first time joining in on the Read A Thon and I have to say that I am really excited about it.  I have read a few blog post from other Mocha Girls and their excitement is contagious. Here is a post from Mocha Girl Jade blogger and book reviewer of Sort of Beautiful.

          I’m gearing up for the read-a-thon tomorrow. Since I’ve been feeling crappy I doubt I’ll be able to do the whole time. Which sucks since I can actually stay up for twenty-four hours. But the medicine I take sometimes makes me drowsy…blah! So I’m hoping to at least complete half of this challenge and hope I’m in tip top shape to attempt the whole shebang the next go round. But I think this will still be good training and preparation.  (read more)

Mocha Girl Alexis blogger and book reviewer of Reflections of a Bookaholic posted this today about the Read A Thon…

          It’s almost here!!  There is a slight chance I won’t be able to participate (I need to make a client visit in another county, but I’m hoping I can do that on Sunday…cross your fingers…I am). (read more)

See what I mean.  So join us tomorrow and the other 400 readers all over the world who are taking one day to enjoy reading.  Start times are on the web site as well.  Los Angeles is 5am!  AARGGHHH!!!

So here is my plan-

Books:  Finish reading the Mocha Girls Read book The Strawberry Letter then take a magazine break.  I have not opened my October issue of Los Angeles Magazine.  After that I am going to complete The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson.  I am going to take a break somewhere in there and go shoe shopping at DSW.  If I still have time in the Read A Thon then I will finish the last chapters of Little Bee by Chris Cleave.

Food:  Starting with a fruit smoothie at 5:30 am then I’ll have cereal.  The rest of the day will be healthy snacks.  Trail mix, dried mango, bananas, and just in case that doesn’t help me, I have a box of Almond cookies to go with it.  Don’t worry Domino’s is on step dial.

Stuff:  Blanket, socks, favorite tea cup, and sofa….check!

Keep the pages turning ladies!  ♥Mocha Girl Alysia♥

  • Thanks for the shout ouy hon! I’m glad toknow this blog is here. I’ll definitely be back to visit. I see you’re all set for the read-a-thon as well. So good luck and happy reading! PS…jealous of the DSW trip. I haven’t been there in so long.

    • My mom and aunt are going and I’ll be in the back seat reading. LOL!

  • Thanks for including me in the post!! I really am excited. I will be able to participate. I posted about my books but I forgot to mention the snacks. My plan is to start off with Special K cereal and end with Special K cereal. Lol. It’s my favorite. In between I have tea, frozen grapes, turkey sandwiches, veggie tray, stuffed eggs, and of course ice cream!!

    5 am!! I thought it was bad for me at 7am. I guess you win that one. I’ll be stopping by again throughout the readathon. Good Luck!!
