Hour 1

EEE!!! I’m so excited that the read-a-thon is finally here! Are you ready? Do you have your snacks prepared? Your potential books picked out?

Your host for the next four hours is Trish, and Bethany will co-host for two hours, and then Shesten will take over for her. For the next 4 hours, I (Trish) will be typing up the hosts, and Bethany or Shesten will be checking Twitter, checking in with readers, making sure I don’t screw up, and being generally awesome. It’ll be so much fun! :D

Make sure you check out the Welcome post! It will give you a lot of information that you’ll need. Even if you’ve read it before, you might want to read it again…I mention some new buttons!

Our first mini-challenge for you is the Hour 1 meme that Darcy wrote up quite a few read-a-thons ago. I’d alter it but I’m all about traditions, man!

Where are you reading from today?

3 facts about me …

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?

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)?

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

Come back and sign the Mr. Linky below and we’ll draw 5 winners randomly. Each winner gets a book prize pack, and the first winner will also get the chocolate monkey you see on the right. Again, it’s tradition!

This will be open for two full hours, so no rush!

Have fun and let the reading begin!

  1. I am reading from Columbia, SC…been going steady all morning…just did my first mini-challenge. Hoping to do well this year last year I had to work! This year I have a wedding tonight…but I will be back to hit the books right after!

    Happy Reading to All,


  2. I’m late linking but I think it was within the time frame. I’m very bad with the time conversion.


  3. I was working for the first four and a half hours of the readathon so have joined this quite late but I thought I’d add my intro anyway. 🙂
