People get ready….

… for the 24 hour readathon! It starts tomorrow at 9 a.m in Toronto, and varies by time zone. You can get your start time here.


This will be my first year participating and I’m very excited. Since our reno finished last month, we have boxes and boxes of stuff to sort: purge or place. This is always on my mind. An on-going item on my todo list and so the readathon will give me permission to forget about those things for a while, get cozy in front of the fireplace, and get through some of my to-read pile. It will also (I hope) help me kick the lingering cold that hampered our Thanksgiving plans last weekend and is lingering in my sinuses and ears.

In preparation, here’s my list for today.

  • pick up library books
  • tackle Mount Washmore
  • purchase food and snacks that will be easy to prepare and consume
  • tidy up certain key areas of the house that will give me a sense of calm once they’re in order (kitchen table, dining room table, bedroom)

I’ve signed up and will be posting my progress here (and in FB and twitter.) There are apparently prizes but I haven’t figured that part out yet.

Let me know in the comments if you’re planning to participate.
