We’re So Excited!!!!

So today at 8am Reflections of a Book Addict begins participating in their first 24 hour read-a-thon! (More on this here)  I think the video below accurately shares our feelings on participating!

Now that our excitement has been shared, we can get on with the show!  Expect a lot of blog posts, tweets on twitter, and books added via Goodreads.  I’ll post updates to our Facebook pageas well!  Starting out with me at 8am are fellow staff bloggers Adam and Todd.  In response to the first post of the day on the read-a-thon site, we’re answering getting to know you questions!


1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
