Read-a-Thon


oddSo I had no idea there was a read-a-thon until about an hour ago when I came across it on Twitter. I am going to participate. YAY! This ONE

1)Where are you reading from today?
I am reading from my room in Pyoengtaek, South Korea.

2)Three random facts about me…
I love the smell of crayons, I wish I were Mrs. Ron Weasley, and a favorite hobby of mine is penpalling.

3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Um I am going to say 10:
The Strageling by: Saskia Walker
Vampire Mine by: Kerrelyn Sparks
The Grail King by: Joy Nash
Hard Magic by
The Master and the Muses
Daughter of Witching Hill
Absolutely Positively
Harry Potter Three finish
Starcrossed
The Iron Thorn

These will probably change as I read.

4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
Nope none at all.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Caffinate. lol. Take breaks...check in on twitter.

I am super excited I am able to read-a-thon tonight! Good Luck everyone!

Also for every book read I will donate ONE dollar to Breast Cancer Awareness!
