24hrreadathonbuttonThe weather is great for a readathon: it’s RAINING! And the kitty cats are being cosy because of that :)

I have a hard time concentrating on my reading because of all the excitement… I didn’t expect that to happen! But veterans tanabata and nymeth tell me this is nothing to worry about. I trust them!

Hour 1 readathon meme

The first mini challenge is a meme:

  • Where are you reading from today?
    I’m in Utrecht, The Netherlands, sitting in the chair I’ve shown you in my earlier post.
  • 3 facts about me …
    I’m 30+ (or rather 40-), work in a museum and have too many interests…
  • How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
    10, but I have no illusions about reading all of them!
  • 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)?
    Just to have fun and try not to spend too much time at my computer (and I don’t want to get cranky so I’ll take it easy ;)

Hour 2 readathon mini challenge

Wordlily challenged us to get the #readathon hashtag in the trending topics of Twitter. Well, it is! Unfortunately my browser crashed while updating (probably due to an Tweetdeck overload ;) so I guess I’m too late for participating in this mini-challenge. Here’s my screendump anyway.
