Read-a-thon!!! Kick-off Video

April 18, 2009 Readathon, Reading Nook 18

Hope the video spreads some excitement–I tried to keep it really short since I know we’re all busy and frantic this morning. Sorry it is so dark, but it’s difficult to video yourself with your camera and I promised myself I would only take one video–no do overs. :)

It’s bright and early (well dark and early) here and I woke up at 5:30, admitted defeat at 6:00 and got up, and here I am! The coffee is brewing, I’ve got my snacks set out, my books are stacked, and I’m ready to go!!!!! And I’m REALLY excited. Could you get that from the video? :P

Seems like I got more snacks than that, but it’s a good start. Oh man–forgot to include the Brownie Mix that I conned Scott into getting for me (the whole…”you could make me some Brownies while I read” bit). Not sure what I’ll start with first–maybe The Outsiders since I’m already 30 pages in.
Few things about comments today:
**I will not be responding to comments on my blog today like normal. Last time if there were questions, I answered them on the next update post. Seemed to work well.
**Also, I plan on leaving a zillion comments today, so I will not be subscribing to follow up comments. Just FYI. :)
If you haven’t joined yet–it’s not too late!
HAPPY READ-A-THONING!!!!!

    I think I might go back to sleep myself, but coffee and brownies sound like a splendid idea for later (too bad I doubt I can con my wife into making any)! Hope you have a great read-a-thon, Trish!

    Man you look cute at 6:10! It is now 7:10 here, and I am SO NOT videoing myself. I have not even looked in a mirror.

    One hour down, 23 to go!

    Great video Trish! Snackies look good and you look ready to go. Good luck. I got started an hour later than I was supposed to. 6 am is bit too early for me. I’ll be checking back. Have fun!
