Hour 2 – The Kick Off of Champions

Dewey 24 hour readathonWe’re in the final minutes of the second hour of the Read-a-thon as I write this. It’s almost midnight here and I’m looking forward to making myself a cup of tea and curling up with a book in just a few minutes.

First, I want to take part in The Kick Off of Champions, the Hour 2 mini challenge hosted by Miss Remmers at Miss Remmers’ Review. I’m afraid it will have to be a boring text post. At the moment, I’m using my laptop and I’ll have to wait for a few hours before I can download some photos to add.

At the moment, I’m sitting in our loungeroom in my pyjamas (an attractive green and hot pink ensemble emblazoned with the phrase ‘boys have cooties’).

I have my books in a pile next to me with my iPod resting on top playing Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales. The current tale is being read by Matt Damon. Does that mean I can say that Matt Damon and I are curled up on the lounge together enjoying the Read-a-thon? Sounds good to me.

Back to reality. I have to be very careful where I put my feet, as my younger son has an elaborate train track set up on the loungeroom floor and will chastise me in the morning if I move anything.

Once this post is finished, I will go make myself a cup of tea (probably a nice mug of peppermint and English toffee) and I’ll probably start my reading with Lauren Oliver’s If I Fall.

Time to get on with some reading.

    Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!
