I am VERY excited for the read-a-thon! If you haven't signed up or are debating it, sign up! It's a no pressure way to get some reading done and meet a whole bunch of people. I participated in the read-a-thon for the first time last time. It was my first Dewey event.

I made a lot of mistakes last time and I was just a reader. I didn't give myself enough variety and I only read shorter classics. It wasn't too much fun.

This year I have a giant stack of books. If I get tired of reading, I can always go do my cheerleading duties. I impulsively decided to sign up as a cheerleader too.

And if that wasn't enough, I'm hosting a mini challenge!

I've never stayed up all night before. I've tried. Just like last time, I'll go to bed at 9 or 10. That's probably the only thing I did right last time :)

Here's the books I have on hand. I might read a few of them this week, but this is basically all the choices I will have.

All of the Calvin and Hobbes comic books (I really needed them last time but my dad couldn't find his colelction. It is found now!)
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
I Capture the Castle
Suite Francaise
Words Without Borders
Does this Book Make Me Look Fat?
The View From Saturday
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
Black Beauty
Anne of Green Gables

Plus any short stories I can read on the internet.

Even though this time I have lighter reading, my goal is still to finish three books. After all, I have do cheerlead and host a mini-challenge this time too.

Have I mentioned how really excited I am.
