24 Hour Read-a-thon


So it’s been quite an internal struggle going on the last few weeks.  I could quite decide if I was going to participate in the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon.  I have to work tomorrow from 10-2 but I’ll be able to get some reading read in during that time.  After seeing so many of my fellow book bloggers talking about this event I couldn’t help but cave under the excitement on the web.  I have a number of books that I want to read during this time so I thought, hey why not read them?  

The book I’ll be reading at work is Alexander McCall Smith’s most recent book La’s Orchestra Saves the World.  Once I get home I have a couple of books that I’ll be reading 1) Fool by Christopher Moore, a novel I started already, 2) The book being read by the CBC Book club: The Man Who Forgot How to Read by Howard Engel.

The hardest part will be reading with my roommates around.  They tend to think that the television needs to be on all the time so I may have to hunker down into my bedroom to get all my reading done.  

Since this is my first time doing this it’s sure to be a great learning experience.  I’m not exactly sure what is all entailed in participating in this event but I’ll do what I want I guess.  I’ll post on here a couple of times to let everyone know how my reading experience is going.  If you have any tips for a first timer I’d like to hear them!  Have a great time reading!

As a side note, I’m looking for funny books.  If you have read any funny stop by my What Makes You Laugh post and by participating you can win one of the novels suggested as funny reads.

  1. I’m so glad you decided to give it a go! Good luck, Aaron!

    The idea is that each participant do whatever they want, really 🙂 Update as often as you like. Rest when you feel tired. And above all, have fun!

  2. Have a great time with it, enjoy your day of reading 🙂

    Maybe you can get out of the house (library?) if your roommates are noisy!

  3. I live alone, which can actually be more distracting than having roommates around because there is no one to keep me accountable to what I’m supposed to be doing 🙂

    I hope you’re having a great Read-a-Thon so far!
