Where are you reading from today? Indianapolis, IN
What are your goals for the Readathon? I want to get through at least one or two books and put a dent in a few short story collections that have been on my shelf.
What book(s) are you planning on reading? I'm going to be picking books from the stack in the picture above. I know I won't get to them all, but I've got a good variety to choose from.
Are you excited? Of course! I love having some specific time carved out for reading.
