The Madness Starts
Couple of minutes left to start! I am all set at the starting line. Dewey’s Readathon, Bring it on!
Me, the obsessive control freak, has made a list and checked and double checked all items.
- E-Book Reader Charged – Check
- Snacks set and dinner plans in place – Check
- Plenty of Water Bottles – Check
- Good Music – Check
- Have told Dad and all friends/relations not to call me till Sunday Evening – Check
Seems like I am all-ok to make SOME dent in my reading list!
I am kind of confused as to whether to read The Girl on the Train first or The Land of the Seven Rivers to kick start the event. I will fit in Dombey and Sons somewhere after that, before I am too exhausted and drop off before I know; Dickens clearly is not at his best in this one. I have kept Christie and Austen for the difficult hours (late night and afternoons) and New York and Jerusalem come in when I have revved up my engines well and all set for some ground breaking reading. Thackeray will provide a wonderful diversionary break! Well this is the plan! And now that I am almost there, a though comes to, what the hell was I thinking????
Oh! Well! To late to ponder over those philosophical conundrums. Let’s just plunge in with the Opening Meme –
1.What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
India, New Delhi to be exact!
2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
That had to be a toss up between The Land of Seven Rivers and New York
3. Which snack are you most looking forward to?
There are these absolutely melt in your mouth shortbreads that a dear friend from England sent me! That’s not only a motivation but also an indulgence!
4.Tell us a little something about yourself!
Dedicated reader, trying to be a writer, full time Project Leader in a financial conglomerate, amateur historian, devoted blogger, born traveler, occasional exotic cuisine chef, daughter, sister, friend!
5. If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I have read many many times through my life. But reading through 24 hours should be something else. Also I am really really impressed with all the one-world-cyber-cheering and supporting happening; from United States to the Nordics to Australia to closer home in New Delhi! This feeling is totally out of the world!
And now LET’s READ!!!
