  1. Looks like you’ve started off great. I’ve also managed to start with quite a heavy going book. Good luck with the rest of the 24 hours!

  2. You’re doing great! Happy reading!

  3. WOW! You are really organized. Soundtracks even! I’m impressed. I loved INTERTWINED by Gena Showalter. I hope you do too.

    • Well I did steal the format… but I also have slight organizational OCD tendencies lol.

      So far I’m loving it too 🙂

      Thanks!

  4. Happy Read-a-Thon day! I hope the first few hours have been treating you well. Have fun today and enjoy the wonderful books you have lined up 🙂

    I’ve heard Intertwined is really good – I hope you’re liking it. And I love that you have a soundtrack category! I love picking music for my books 🙂

  5. Good luck Tara!! Hopefully I can do this in April!!

  6. Happy Reading, Tara! 🙂

  7. ReadaThon ReadaThon ReadaThon! When you get tired or the eyes go funny just chant for a bit. I find it helps! Happy Reading!

  8. I think the update formula you guys are using is great. Good luck!

  9. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

  10. I’m so happy you went to my mini-challenge! Awesome job on the reading. Keep it up!
