Readathon October 2010 - Kickoff Post

Good morning! I start the October ReadAThon at 8 am - only 45 minutes away! I'm infusing my body with coffee and cereal to help me make it through at least my first book.  I'll be reading and cleaning today with a short trip to the bookstore, the library sales, and possibly the library. 

Here are some of the books I want to tackle:
  • Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs
  • The Familiars
  • Heart of a Samurai - Mock Newbery
  • Reckless
  • Lulu and the Brontasaurus
  • The War to End All Wars - Mock Newbery
It seems like a good mix of contemporary realistic, fantasy and historical fiction. 

Here's how my posts should look:

I'll be cheerleading too! So look for me around the blogosphere and on twitter at  I'll update after each book or every 3 or so hours whichever comes first.

Happy Reading!


  1. Not familiar with those titles. Hope you're enjoying your reading!

  2. Good luck. I'm going to try to emulate you by sticking to a regular reading schedule this month. I'll let you know if I actually do what I hope to do.

    Thanks for the inspiration.


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
