11, but I hope to read 4-5

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
4-5 books, 1000 pages, 16 hours reading, and loads of fun

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Get into a routine. Comment a lot to cheer others on. But most importantly HAVE FUN!!!

  1. You are doing great!!! I love When Harry Met Sally (but I also believe that guys are girls can be friends, too)!

    Keep it up! I’ll check back again later!

  2. Great job so far! I’m taking a bit of a break. The Girl and I just finished Coraline. Granted, we’d started it a while ago, but still. It’s one down. I know you can meet your goals!
