I’m not crying, you’re crying.

    I fell in love with books as soon as I learned to read. I’m a book hoarder and book reader. While I love my kindle and books on audio, I can’t part with traditional “dead tree” books. Now if only they didn’t take up so much space! I’ve no room on my bookshelves, so I’ve started double stacking. Ouch! Perhaps it’s time to consider a bigger house! : )

    This is my 6th read-a-thon. I never seem to read more than 1-2 books, so this time I’ve picked out some shorter books in the hopes I’ll increase my numbers. However, even if I read 4-5 books, that won’t do much to reduce my massive TBR stack.

    The last readathon, I only read graphic novels/comic/manga, but for this one, I am not reading those because I don’t have any prepared. This readathon came on really fast and I wasn’t quite ready. haha

    Last time, I read 19 books because graphic novels go really fast! I’m not sure how many books I can do this time. I did stay up the full 24 hours and read for most of them. I hope to do the same this time, but I know realistically, I won’t be reading the full 24 hours.
