Not too long now before the read-a-thon starts. I certainly won't read all of them but I've gathered together a large selection of books to choose from. Of course I also have the rest of my TBR mountain to peruse if necessary.
We went out for lunch earlier today (I had Vietnamese Pho - Yum!) and stopped by the store on our way home to stock up on snacks and drinks so I think I'm set.
Even though I am reading for Breast Cancer Research, my main focus for this, my first read-a-thon, is on having fun. I'm going to try staying awake for the full 24 hours but if I just can't stay awake any longer, I will go have a nap. (I only managed a one-hour nap this afternoon.)
I'm not sure how the mini-challenges work but I don't want to spend all my time online, so I plan to check in and update every couple of hours or so. That may be more or less frequent depending on whether I need a break from reading or am lost in a book.
In a bit of unfortunate timing, my occasional killer headache chose to strike today. I've loaded up on pain pills but I may need to focus on the graphic novels and easier reading. We'll see how it goes. Good luck everyone!
