As I write this I have 13:50 hours until Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, October 2016 begins. In April I managed to go the entire 24-hours with minore breaks to be fed and watered. This time I will have at least one lengthy break as it is my daughter’s birthday and we’ll be taking her out for early dinner and dessert. She has plans after, so I’ll be free to continue the read-a-thon. As I type this I am experiencing deja vu. Did I make this exact same post before? Oh well.
For prep I finally decided on my reading list. I have one book in particular I want to tackle, but I have back-ups in case I get tired of it or just need a break from it. I have either physical, ebook, audiobook or some combination of the three for all of my books. So when my hands get tired, I have and Kindle or Nook, when my eyes get tired I have audiobooks loaded on my iPod.

I’ve got all of my sitting spots picked out. One of which my pup has commandeered at the moment.
I’ve got fruit and veggies in the fridge and I’ve got not-so-healthy snacks at the ready.
I’ve got plenty to drink.
I’m working on getting my blog ready for the hourly updates. I’ve ordered cupcakes for the kid and the family knows the details of our birthday dinner outing. Everyone wish me luck. I hope you enjoy my updates. Feel free to cheer me on, or join the read-a-thon!
