The 24h Read-a-Thon Is Almost There!
October 19, 2011 23 Comments
It’s almost time for the 24h read-a-thon! I can’t wait!
It’s happening this Saturday and lasts for 24 hours. Everyone starts at the same time, so for some the starting time is in the middle of the night, for me, in the Netherlands, it’s 2pm.
I’m getting my books ready but keep changing my mind. That’s OK, I can pick up whatever I like, of course. This is my current pile to choose from:
Some of the books I’ve mentioned before, but that’s because they’ve been on one of my challenge/TBR lists.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- My Year with Eleanor by Noelle Hancock
- What To Do When Somone Dies by Nicci French
- The Book Club by Marjolijn Februari
- The Ugly Sister by Jane Fallon
Now, let’s make sure we got our refreshments ready in time so we don’t have to cook or buy food while we’re readathoning! I’m planning to get my husband to make the main meal – he usually does on Saturday.
For some great tips, check out the guest post of Kristin of Peace, Love and Muesli that she kindly wrote for my 24 hour read-a-thon last time. Her post reminded me that you can eat healthy foods. Just because you have little time to make snacks and other foods, doesn’t mean you have to resort to junk food.
Last time I made Kristin’s Apple Sauce Muffins which were delicious. I’m also very tempted by the Dutch Spiced Muffins on She Likes Bento‘s blog. And I need some nice drinks and lots of fruit. I love a fruit salad at midnight. :-)
What will you be reading and eating for the read-a-thon?
