Six Hours into, Yes, a Reading Marathon

Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 12.35.34 PMYes, I was creative and crazy enough to do the Rock ‘N Roll Marathon in San Diego, and I loved it, and finished relatively well – finished and all!  (and for a Great cause – Leukemia!)

Now, we are looking down the barrel of pages of the Reading Marathon, and it is now 6:16am!  After checking in at the 6th hour, and pulling myself from sleep after starting 2 hours, it is easy to get back to it.  Here was my answers to the check in :

Where in the world are you reading from this weekend?

Several places! PHYSICALLY reading from Mexico City! In my books reading from Elorium (A Grimm Legacy), Paris (All the Light We Cannot See), and Iowa (Early Warning!)

Have you done the 24in48 readathon before?

Never! This is my first time!

Where did you hear about the readathon?

From Kristen Dixie, a colleague at The American School Foundation in Mexico City!

What book are you most excited about reading this weekend?

All the Light You Cannot See (from it’s hype on New York Times list and more!)
Tell us something about yourself.

I think the world needs more proponents of literacy and creative ways to allow it to occur in so many ways, (my public statement done for this early).  Back to reading and wherever you are, go ahead, jump in!
