Hosted by Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon
Guess what tomorrow is?
Yes, one complete, 24 hour long, day devoted to reading and reading and snacks. This going to be my 5th RAT! Whew!
I am going to lock myself in my place, turn the cell onto silent mode and read and snack like no bodies business. I even cancelled my workout session with my trainer today. Why? Because it's read-a-thon day! I'm on my way to Trader's Joes to stock pile my kitchen with healthy and not so healthy read-a-thon snacks and beverages hot and cold. Last read-a-thon I made the mistake of including wine with my read. It was just a glass (or two) around hour 15. Needless to say I didn't see hour 16 and beyond. This time NO WINE!
Before I head to the supermarket I thought I would let you know what my Read-A-Thon Goals are.
1. The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice. I started this one and put it down for some crazy reason. I am on page 10 now and I have 393 pages to go.
2. I am reading and listening to The Good House by Tananarive Due. Currently I am on page 195 out of 480. So I would love to finish this one. I think I will!
That's it! Yes, only 2 books. If I finish these two by the grace of God then I will start on My Soul To Keep by Tananarive Due. This is a book club pick for the month of October. This will be a re-read for me. I read it about ten years ago and loved it. So I am happy to read it again.
Breakfast: Hot Oatmeal with raisions and banana
Lunch: Tuna and crackers and small salad
Dinner: Soup (Not sure what kind yet)
Rice, Salmon and aspargus
Snacks: Fresh fruit, trail mix, veggie chips, and ice cream
Beverages: Green tea (hot and cold), Coffee, Water,
This time my game plan is to update my blog every four hours. During that hour I will enter giveaways, chat on twitter and visit other blogs. Only during that hour. I hope. At least that is the game plan. So hour 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24. That's it! (Telling myself mostly)
