#readathon 0:00

TIME: 13:00
STATUS: ALIVE
PAGES READ: 0

Books, check. Snacks, check. Coffee, check. Sanity...er.

So I'm embarking on Dewey's 24 hour readathon today. That's 24 hours solid of reading! I'll do my best to stay awake as I'm fundraising for the Alzheimer's Society and I have a few people pledging a penny per page so every page counts! You can read more on why I have chosen this worthy cause here.

Lots of you have reading lists all planned out. Other than wanting to read Terry Pratchett's latest, I'm not all that sure but I have pulled a few books off the shelf:

Snuff - Terry Pratchett
Soulless - Gail Carriger
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams (re-read)
Killed at the Whim of a Hat - Colin Cotterill
Lost in a Good Book - Jasper Fforde
What I Talk About When I Talk About Running - Haruki Murakami
Everything's Eventual - Stephen King (short stories to scare me awake)
Calling Romeo - Alexandra Potter
Star Gazing - Linda Gillard
America Unchained - Dave Gorman

I don't think I'll be blogging every hour but there'll be plenty of updates on Twitter. Good luck everyone!

  2. I hope you find STAR GAZING is stimulating enough to keep you awake! Thanks for selecting it. Quite an honour. :-)
