I stole Debi's idea of a readathon checklist.
1. Clean bedroom to make my readathon experience seem like I'm reading in a bedroom, not a junkyard.
2. Assemble readathon stack that is too large.
3. Order more books from the library to add to the already huge stack but tell yourself more variety is a good thing.
4. Study for Psychology test on Monday so I won't have to read more after the readathon...eh...let's skip that one.
5. Make a template for posting.
6. Write mini-challenge post.
7. Make all the phone calls and do all the homework that will be nagging me me during the readathon if I don't do them...
8. Make it so I don’t have to approve comments (for the mini challenge)
9. Tell sister and brother not to gobble all the muffins so I can have one for breakfast
10. Set alarm for a few minutes before 8 AM
11. Begin reading a readathon book so I will finish a book early on and feel accomplished
12. Borrow movies from a friend to watch the next day because I won’t feel like reading
13. Check weather forecast to see if it will be nice enough to read outside (it will)
14. Pick up the two extra library books I ordered
15. Make tuna salad and gingerbread coffee
16. Cross fingers hoping that the neighbors won't burn stuff outside so I will be able to read outside in the nice weather without smelling smoke all day. (Sheesh...we live in the suburbs of Pittsbugh, not in the middle of West Virginia)
