Well, it’s almost upon us – the 24-Hour Read-a-thon starts tomorrow at 8 AM ET! I can’t wait!
As a word of warning to my subscribers who have absolutely no interest in the read-a-thon, I’m probably going to be posting at least 5 or 6 times about my progress. If you have no interest in the read-a-thon, don’t worry. I’m making it easy for you. I’m not posting a new review until MONDAY morning. So all you have to do is visit your RSS reader on Sunday and mark all the posts in my folder as read.
As far as strategy, I’ve decided to change it a little. Last year, I pretty much focused on one book at a time. But that’s not how I normally read – usually after reading one book cover to cover, I read parts of 2-3 other books, then read another book cover to cover. I’ve decided to try mimicking that for the read-a-thon this year, which is why I’ll have multiple “What I’m Reading Now” books.
I’m also not going to update my blog every hour like I did last year. I felt like I spent too much time blogging and not enough time reading! Therefore, I might update once every two or three hours, but I will be tweeting throughout the event. While I won’t have my Tweetdeck up, I’ll be monitoring the #readathon hashtag and any @ replies from TweetGrid. (Basically, this means don’t DM me – I won’t see it!)
Well, that’s about it! See you all bright and early tomorrow morning!
