And we're off!

It's time for readathon to start! After the false start, and the excitement of the build up on Twitter, I am....going to bed! Feels a bit like an anti climax, but never mind!

But just have time to post the hour 1 meme.

Where are you reading from today? I am reading from Melbourne, Australia. It is now 11pm on Saturday night so no chance of me making it all the way through all 24 hours.

3 facts about me … I've been blogging for more than 4 years, I love historical fiction and I am currently watching English Premier League soccer as I type this up! I love watching EPL as a result of having spent 5 years living in the UK.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? At this stage five (see previous post)

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)? My main goal is to have fun, and to try and get a good mix of reading, cheerleading and blogging in. I want to focus my cheerleading from approximately hour 18 as that is when it will be Sunday evening for me so I will be far more awake than a lot of people from other parts of the world

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Getting the starting time right always helps!


  1. I'm just now getting started, but wanted to wish you luck before I headed off for a while to read! Have fun and enjoy!!

  2. Haha! Sometimes going to bed is the best thing. :-) You've done a great job, Marg, with the read-a-thon so far!

  3. Very happy readathon! Enjoy your books, and have lots of fun :)

  4. Great afternoon and the leaves are falling, wind is whipping through the trees here in Auburn, Alabama, great time to curl up with that next book and keep on reading!!! Hot chocolate and cookies have got to be around there somewhere!!

    Go Reading,Go Reading,Go Reading!!!
    the Transcendentalists team!

  5. Glad to see another Team Transcedentalists member dropping by! Thanks Rebecca!

    Thanks Alessandra and Tif!

    LF, with the time zones the way they are it really wouldn't work for me to do anything but go to bed!
