Readathon

#Readathon – The Official Starting Line

So I’ve been reading for 3 hours already. You can see what I’m reading and eating here.

Official hours spent reading: 0
Actual hours spent reading: 3*
Pages read: 140
Books read: Kitty Steals the Show
Food eaten: toasted teacake
Coffee count: 2

*Subtract standard 20% internet faffing time.


Introductory Questionnaire

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Bournemouth, UK. I was hoping to go outside but it’s clouded over a bit so I’ll stick to the sofa and bed.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Care of Wooden Floors by Will Wiles (which I chose for book group).

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
The goats cheese and red pepper dip looks pretty good. I am rather fond of celery dipped in stuff.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Well I’ve already admitted to liking celery. It’s probably a moot point to say I really like books. I have recently become obsessed with limited edition geek t-shirts from places like Qwertee and Threadless.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?
Well I started early this time. I haven’t managed a readathon without sleep yet so I’m prepared to doze off around 2am and I’ll attempt to wake up at 6am. Aim is to read for 24 hours even if I’m a little outside of the official window.

Hour 1 – Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!!!!

    You know, I read Bournemouth here then went over to other Ellie's blog where I read Derbyshire and thought "but I though she was from Bournemouth?" my brain is silly!

    Oh, the coffee pic looks so delicious that I think I need to make some for myself! Good luck with the reading. πŸ™‚

    Coffee! Books! Toasted tea cakes! Care of Wooden Floors! 3 hours reading! Internet faffing time! Yup, sounds like you're off to a cracking start… πŸ™‚

    Oh, and Hannah? I'M THE DERBYSHIRE ELLIE. And my sister's called Hannah. Imagine how fun this is going to be when we're all really tired later. πŸ˜‰

      Do you know what? I actually didn't know you were from Derbyshire! I'd only ever read 'tourist town'. πŸ˜€

    2. Ellie

      And that's extra confusing cos I'm in a tourist town too! *waves pitchfork at tourists*

    3. Hannah @ Dragons and Whimsy

      THAT is actually the part that confused my brain! *joins in waving pitchforks at tourists*

    I am to read 24 hours as well but over two days. I just can't read that much in one go. Have fun today!
