It’s here! It’s here! My excuse to read for 24 hours, uninterrupted! I have piles, yes piles of book set aside to choose from. I don’t believe I’ll read more than 5 or 6 but I like to have my options handy & close by! Here’s my oldest son’s stack of books to choose from:

So as not to inundate those who follow my blog and are not participating in the readathon, I have opted to post my updates to my Tumblr page. Not to worry, I’ll post links to each of my updates below.  They will each use the following format: Progress so far:

    Over 500 pages already: you’ve chosen the perfect books! Love your pics. And it’s great that your son’s pile is almost as voluminous as yours.

    Here’s to large, squarish eyes, perfect for Read-a-Thon-ing!
    Keep it up! #cheersmarties

    I am with you. I like to have my options too. Have a huge stack out from the library not to mention the hundreds of books that I personally own. Hope you’re having a great read-a-thon!

    I didn’t get a stack of books together this time around. I am reading whatever speaks to me for the moment. I got a late start since I slept in. Hopefully those late hours will be kinder to me since I am well rested. You are doing great! A pumpkin latte sounds good! Keep on reading!
