I’m super excited to participate in my first ever readathon this Saturday. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Because I don’t really know how much I’ll be able to read, I don’t want to set my goals too high and overwhelm myself. This is supposed to be for fun, and I’m not all about stressing myself out over it.
My goal is to read at least 12 hours total. If I read more, I’ll be stoked. I figure that I can average at least 50 pages an hour – more if the book is really good and keeping my attention – making my total page goal of 600 pages (at least). On average that’s a little less than 2 full length novels. But I really hope I can surpass that.
I’m giving myself several options so if I get bored or start to lose focus – I have other books to fall back on. My game plan is to finish the books I’m working on right now, and if I get those finished – I have several ready to start.
To finish if I haven’t already finished by Friday (but I better finish one of them by Friday or I’m revoking my own bookworm card):
I’m giving myself options but I realistically only think I will get through one of them. I feel like I have a good variety with some New Adult, a YA, as well as a Cozy Mystery if I get the urge for it.
I’m going to start with one of these so that I feel like I’m accomplishing something.
I think I have a good line up and hope I just have fun and enjoy the whole process – reading, blogging, and chatting with other marathoners. It’s been a long time since I could read an entire day for fun and that is why I’m doing it!
