HELLO! We are hosting another super-awesome readathon! It doesn’t matter what you read – the goal is just to read for the whole 4 hours if you can. Here are a few questions/challenges to get you started on your 4-hour reading marathon.

Introduction: Tell everyone three random things about yourself.
Is this your first readathon?
What book or books will you be reading today? What are your goals for today? (#of books or pages to read?)
Do you have any specific snacks ready?
Describe the place where you will be reading.

Reply to these questions if you are here!

You made it through the first hour. Y’all are doing great! Here are the Hour 2 challenges:

 

Random Sentence. Post your favorite sentence from the page you are reading right now.

 

Writing Sprint: If you were sent to the North Pole RIGHT NOW on a top-secret spy mission and had to bring a character from the book you’re reading right now with you, who would you pick? Why?

I'm reading Sisters by Raina Telgemeier. It's a graphic novel so it's pictures and word, but my favorite drawing so far is "Anatomy of a Road Trip: Stuff, Amara's Wild Kingdom, Raina's Radical Zone, Little Brother Section, and Mom's Corner." It shows all the things that each person brings in the car for their road trip.

I am happy to say I have started reading and completed one of the three books I have listed which is the World according to Humphrey and have started reading Animal World.  I would soon finish it and then start reading The Saturdays.
