I've been looking forward to this mini-readathon for ages now--I even put it on my husband's calendar and last night he noticed it for the first time. I was so stealthy about putting it on there that I had neglected to explain that we'll be spending Saturday reading.
I've not put much thought into my mini-snacks this time around -- quel horreur! -- but I've been planning my reading for about a month. I will be multitasking this mini-thon like a boss: I will be reading the first two chapters and/or the first 50 pages, whichever is longer, of a big stack of books. IN other words, I will be reading mini amounts. These books happen to be either books I'm considering packing for vacation or books that my store's First Editions Club is considering for selection. Bam. Done and done.
I woke up this morning feeling a little wobbly in the tummy, so the silver dollar pancakes (with a nod to What Red Read) I had planned turned out to be toast and tea, and that's probably all I will consume for the rest of the day, but I will do it often and in mini amounts. And I will also intersperse my minithon with plenty of mini naps.
Here are the two stacks of books I'm going to be reading in:
How about y'all? I know this is a slim-participation 'thon today, competing with wedding plans music festivals and new babies and the watching of the new season of Orange is the New Black, but I'm eager to check in with everybody to see how things are going.
Edited on 8 June 2014 to add:
I didn't get as much read yesterday as I'd hoped. Napping seemed pretty important, so I napped twice. I did find a keeper for my suitcase for vacation (Lexicon by Max Barry), a probable book for my suitcase for vacation ( The Dog by Joseph O'Neill), and possible books for my store's First Editions Club (Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel and A Sudden Light by Garth Stein). The only book that I started reading and was surprised not to love immediately was the third book in the Jasper Fforde series.
My snacking was limited to tea and toast all day, so not especially exciting, but I feel much better today as I head to work. I'll try to cheer on those of you who opt to 'thon today.
