Hour 1, 8:00 a.m. UPDATE — I just did my cheerleading for an hour and only managed to make it to 40 of the blogs (and that was only leaving comments on blogs that had a Read-a-Thon post at the top of their page). It’s going to take me awhile to get through all of them! I think I’ll just put in more time tonight or this afternoon if I can. Yipes! Good luck everyone!
INTRO — The 24 Hour Read-a-Thon is an event hosted by Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf. Once in October and once in April, people sign up to do a book reading marathon — 24 hours! You can read the Read-a-Thon FAQ or the info page about the October 2008 Read-a-Thon (this is where the Mr. Linky with participants is located and what I’m working from). Aerin’s posted a great participants list to keep everyone organized as well.
I’m not reading since I have a midterm I need to work on this weekend, and I am going to a friend’s house today to make pie! Instead, I’m participating as a cheerleader. That means I’ll be spending awhile early this morning (right when things are starting) surfing around to blogs and leaving comments before I have to go work. I’m going to try to do some cheerleading later too, but we’ll see.
So, that’s what I’ll be doing for quite a while this morning. I’m excited, go readers!
