April 2009 Read-a-thon

After watching the read-a-thon take place from the sidelines last year, I decided to take part this time around as it all looks such good fun! The UK start time is 1pm today - I'm not sure how many update posts here I will manage to complete over the next 24 hours but I will definitely be updating my twitter account at regular intervals. The official hashtag is #readathon if you want to join in.

I have a TBR pile of at least 150 books so this also strikes me as a perfect opportunity to curl up and make some inroads into that stash. Getting my caveats out of the way early, I will be going to bed at some point tonight and I do also have a number of post-holiday household chores to complete (boo!) but I am really looking forward to getting as involved as possible.

I've also decided that any book completed between 1pm today and 1pm on Sunday will incur a "bonus" donation to BookAid of £2. Having said that, I'd better make sure I read plenty of books in the next 24 hours!

Thanks all! If I'm going to make inroads into The Pile, I think I had better stop spending so much time refreshing twitter feeds and poring over competition entries and read some books...
