24 Hour Dewey Spring Read A Thon




The First Meme for the Read A Thon:

Where are you reading from today?
"The Girl She Used to Be" by David Cristofano;"The Noticer Project" by Andy Andrews; "Follow Me" by Joanna Scott
3 facts about me …
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 3
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? I've got a family to attend to and laundry so I can't go all out and JUST read.. but I'll do my part :) If I can read those three books that would be awesome and to create their reviews.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? I am doing this for the first time.


The Burton Review Progress:
Book One "The Girl She Used To Be"
It's is 9:33am, I am on Book one, page 121 of 241.
10:30 AM After starting a load of laundry and a Cocoa Puff Debacle I am on page 174.
12:00 PM Finished! Have to check in on everyone, and write the review.
12:47 PM finished Review, the laundry.. the kids are a little stir crazy, but I hope to start Book Two at 1:00
3:25 pm ummm Not doing too good on the reading, but I am on page 48 of "The Noticer Project" book two. April 27th is the Virtual kick off for this book so check back then! (giveaway alert!)
8:34PM Finished "The Noticer", my book #2 and Review is written and scheduled to post 4/27/09.
SO Two Books Read aka roughly 410 pages
8:53 pm, about 14 hours after I picked up the first book, I am about to begin the third (Follow Me, by Joanna Scott)
UPDATE: I read to page 96, and fell asleep around 11:00 PM.. :) I knew there was NO WAY I could keep myself awake regardless of all the Tea I drank. So I'll just continue reading "Follow Me" today but I am not even in the mood to feel rushed through this one. It is a very good story so far, and a thick 420 pages. This is also the Blog tour scheduled for April 27. That's a big day for me (The Noticer Project) and of course I am being audited that day at work.
