All right. I have eaten my Cheerios (mmmmmm), I have a giant water bottle, I have a Snuggie and a comfy couch. I am ready for the Read-a-thon!
My plan for the day: Read from eight to noon, spend the next four or five hours at my meeting/get-together, read from five (or earlier!) until I pass out, which will probably be well before eight tomorrow. Confession: the longest I’ve ever stayed up in one go is 23 hours and 45 minutes, at which point I passed out from sheer exhaustion. I’ve been up since six-thirty today, so if I can make it to six I will be proud of myself! I’ll try to update the blog every two hours or so (or when I make it to the end of a book, or when I have to get up and pee anyway [see: giant water bottle]), and I’ll probably be Twittering slightly more often than that.
Oh, and a reminder: I’m shilling for Donors Choose this month, because they are AWESOME, so please check them out via the links in those posts and consider donating. You will make a lot of students and teachers ridiculously happy.
And now some pictures, because I know the internet likes pictures!
