Musing Mondays October 19

October 19th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about the read-a-thon…

Are you planning on participating in the upcoming 24 Hour Read-a-thon (either as a reader or cheerleader)? Have you made any preparations for the event? And, veterans out there, any tips you’d like to share with the newbies?   This meme is hosted by Just One More Page.  Head on over there to see what others have to say.

I wish I could participate.  Unfortunately I have a two year old who is a total mama’s girl and won’t let me sit down to read for 10 minutes much less all day.  Not to mention we just got back from out of town so there is a pile of stuff to catch up on.  It would be great to participate as while I was out of town I received about 12 books in the mail on top of the ones I already had. I hope those who are participating have a ton of fun!  I will be trying to check in when I can.

    Like you, I wish I had time to participate! I picked up several new books at the Book ‘Em Festival this weekend. I can certainly be a cheerleader though!

    Gosh, I have two cats who won’t let me accomplish anything some days – don’t know how you do it with a two year old!

    Any maybe I should start a 24-hour-write-a-thon?

    I won’t be able to either. It just happens to fall on a night when a bunch of my friends are gathering to watch the UFC fight. So I won’t be home for a large portion of the day. I’ll be cheerleading those that are though.

    Fun, but I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old. Pretty sure 24 hours of reading is out of the question. Although I would love to do it!

    On a side note – Debbie, I think something might be wrong with your Ruined post. There’s no comment section for me to post on and I don’t think all the interview is there.

    L. Diane Wolfe-lol. My old manager had 3 cats and they certainly sounded like a handful!
    Zia-sounds like you are going to be having a fun night either way.
    Page-Wow, I can’t imagine trying to do this with two kids under 5. I think the Ruined post is fixed. My blog was having some trouble earlier. I clicked on it now and it looks ok but please let me know if you are still running into trouble. Thanks!
