Read. Read. Read-A-Thon. I'm Participating Tomorrow

So I'm participating in another read-a-thon tomorrow... Dreadlock Girl's Read. Read. Read-A-Thon. My family thinks I'm crazy. You probably do to. But I'll tell you what... this time I'm only planning on 18 hours. It seems like if I go the entire 24, that I get sick, this time, I'm already sorta sick, so, I'm going to spend 18. That's still a lot of reading.

I tell you this because you're going to want to know wtf I'm doing posting all these things. I'm going to do a similar format to what I did for Dewey's Read-A-Thon in October. I'm going to post something similar every three hours as I did for Dewey's:

As for my read-a-thon goals, here they are:
  1. Finish Beautiful Creatures because tomorrow will be my 20th day reading it (Luh-ame. I know. It's a good book)
  2. Read Nemi, Volume 3.
  3. Hit 700 pages in 18 hours.
  4. Comment at least 4 times on each of my buddy's goals.
Books In My Pile:

Remember that letter I wrote to Santa? Well, I just so happened to get a lot of those books (well, most of them) as a belated birthday present. Santa, thanks for helping with that. So... besides Beautiful Creatures and Nemi, I'll have these in my pile:
  • Girl In The Arena by Lise Haines
  • To Catch A Pirate by Jade Parker
  • A Kiss In Time by Alex Flinn
  • Avalon High Coronation by Meg Cabot
So, that's five novels and 2 graphic novels. It should be plenty for 18 hours, dontcha think?
