And finally, I decide to throw my hat in too!
Wednesday, October 6, 2010
I had been trying to decide about doing the readathon for a while, and was more inclined towards not doing it. Last time I did a readathon, I went into a major reading slump, and coming from another longer slump now, that's the last thing I wanted to risk. But then I realized that the slump happened because I wasn't doing the readathon right. I was trying to up my counts, just to see how much I can read in a day. Because of that, I wasn't enjoying my reading - and that really did me in. I think I have learned from that experience, so I'll just go with my whims on the d-day. No pressure, just pleasure! (Ha!)
Are you doing the readathon too?
Somehow I don't know how I will post regular updates on my blog - it's kind of hard checking for readathon updates every hour, so I may be posting only sporadically. I'll probably need the break. Also, I don't think I will sacrifice my sleep, because after 5 days of waking up early to go to work, it will take more than a readathon to make me want to skip sleep during the weekend too. (I so don't fancy sleeping my whole Sunday and then sitting up like a zombie on Sunday night.)
As for my reading choices, I'm not going to plan my pile - I'll just pick what suits my mind. I have two chunksters (The Passage and Cooking for Geeks) that I am reading right now, so I'll be alternating them with some "smaller" books (Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch, Room, etc).
