There is about 27 hours to go until the read-a-thon begins. My start time, since I am in Sydney, is 10pm Saturday night. That means, if I can't catch some sleep during the day, there is no way I will make 24 hours as I would have been up a whole lot longer than that.
Not that I think I will make it anyway. I haven't stayed up for 24 hours since I was 11-years-old and went to a "wake-a-thon" to raise money for charity, through my Brownie Guides group (that's like scouts for my American buddies). I love my sleep and need a minimum of 8 hours a night to function, otherwise I am zombie like. And I want to kill people. Literally. It's not pretty. So this read-a-thon shall be interesting if not anything else!
I have noticed that a lot of other bloggers have made book lists of material they are going/hoping to read during the read-a-thon. I am not going to do this. My plan (and I am not saying it is a good one), is to just to to our library and see what takes my fancy. I have plenty of unread books and books that I loved enough to read again, so I am going to see what happens.
The closer the read-a-thon gets the more excited I am getting, yet I am also questioning my sanity. As much as I LOVE to read, I am not sure I want to read for that long. But, life is all about experience so instead of asking myself "why" I am doing this, I am going to ask myself "why not"?
