It's that time again folks! Read-a-thon time! This is my fourth or fifth, maybe even my sixth Dewey read-a-thon and, I'm hoping, my best one yet, I haven't got any books lined up as I've discovered I read best in these situations by completely winging it! It all kicks off at 1pm UK time so I'm going to shower, get dressed. get my snacks ready and start thinking about what my first book might be.
I'll be doing semi-regular updates here on the blog but if my internet connection is anything like it's been the last two days (non-existent) I'll probably either be on Twitter or nowhere. Wish me luck!

last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is

Stay awake! And hopefully find an internet connection every time I want to update!
Hours 1 - 4
Chosen my first book!

Trying to choose book number three and time for some dinner!
Hours 9 - 12
Internet went off a while back so no online updates from for a while. Noy unless I want to go and stand in the back garden in the dark to find the wi-fi hotspot! Still reading I'll Give You The Sun and nodded off for an hour!
Hours 13 - 16
Feeling wide awake after my cat nap! Looking for book number five...
Call me crazy but picked up
The BBC have made a seven part adaptation of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell so I want to reread it before the show starts. Only thing I'm not looking forward to about the tv version is that they've cast Marc Warren as The Gentleman With Thistledown Hair and I'm not a huge fan.
Hours 17 - 20
Fast asleep after reading 50 pages of Jonathan Strange!
