I've been wanting to participate in the semi-annual 24-hour read-a-thon for a while but it just hasn't been plausible for me. With being in school and having an internship (alongside my full time job), I work almost every day and can't afford to spend an entire day only reading -- especially since it means I would also need the next day off to catch up on sleep!!!
I'll be finished with my internship in March 2011 so I have high hopes that I'll be able to fully participate in the April one. That leaves this one.
And I've decided I'm going to try to fake it again this time... sort of like i did last April!
This time I have Saturday AND Sunday off.... BUT it's because my husband and I will be visiting my brother-in-law in Raleigh, NC. That means I'll be hanging out and not necessarily reading. However, I believe! I believe I may be able to get a LOT more reading done, if not all day. And then maybe I can challenge myself to stay up as late as I can to keep reading until 8:00 am, hehehehe. I think I'll do every quarter updates, or maybe every 4 hours if I get a lot done.
My only dilemma... I had grand plans to read Freedom while I was on vacation and I really want to read it still... but it seems adverse to read a book over 500 pages for an event that works best when reading a bunch of short ones.
Anyone have any advice on how I should go about doing this? Thanks!!
