I’m doing the 24-hour read-a-thon & opinions wanted #readathon

I have decided to try to participate in Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-A-Thon this year. Let see how far I make it. I am thinking if manage to read 15 hours, it will be a win this year. I just spent 2 days in an online conference and several hours with some girlfriends jewelry shopping!

The read-a-thon is just for fun and I get to make it my own (which I LOVE the idea of, no pressure). There are challenges, games, etc. Even a few little prizes here and there. It starts at 7am central time, so I’ll be getting up early so I can kick it off. I do plan on sleeping though, so I probably won’t read straight through. So, let’s see some comments… what should I read (or finish) first? I’m going to try to use this time reading some Indie or other ARC requests. Obviously, there are more books than I can read in 24 hours… let me know what you’d read over the 24 hours!

Choices are:

Marketing In The Moment by Michael Tasner – 58% read so far

Let’s Do Lunch by KA Jordan – at 50% read so far

The Candy Wars: The Tooth Fairy vs The Candy King by RG Cordiner – at 40% read so far

The Naked Accountant by Jean Backus – on page 27

Betti on the High Wire by Lisa Railsback – on page 65

The Naturals by Sharon Petersen – haven’t started yet

Princess and Missy’s Magical Adventures: The Crystal Heart by Michelle Martin – haven’t started yet

Calico Pennants by David Ross

Tracks and Horizons by Carols Caggiani

October Breezes by Maria Rachel Hooley

The Summoning Fire David Michael

I will not be posting reviews on my blog (well, I will but they will be scheduled for next week – if you want to see my thoughts on a book or just the stars if I don’t feel like reviewing right then – check me out on Amazon or Goodreads.

Cheerleading is always appreciated! WooHoo! (Reading is my biggest hobby, obviously!)
