Read-A-Thon second hour begins


Well, hour 1 is over (for my time zone at least). Being the first time I have participated, I did not really plan on how to update my reading progress.  I am going to make it pretty simple – book, number of pages, time spent reading. I will not be able to update each hour but will as often as possible.

Book:  Rebecca

Pages read:  78

Overall total pages read: 78

Time spent reading: 45 minutes

Overall time spent reading: 45 minutes

Now for the hour 2 meme:

This is a mini-challenge being hosted by Word Lily. The challenge is to make #readathon a trending twitter topic, take a screen shot and post to your blog. Well, it has already happened but my screen print is not working. This is about as close as i can get – I copied and pasted the trending topic. Hope this counts! Go read-a-thonners!!!!

    Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!
