Summer Mini-Readathon Mini-Challenges #1

Sarah at Sarah Says hosts Summer Mini-Readathon. The first mini-challenge! It's pretty basic - a start-of-the-event survey.

1. Tell everyone three random things about yourself:

- 1) I sometimes watch cycling races TV broadcasts to see some great places – right now the scenery – nature, cities, castles – on Tour de France is amazing.

- 2) Over the past few months I’ve become a little (okay, a lot) addicted to anything connected to The Vampire Diaries – watched the show, currently working through the books (so far read four), and of course love the music from the show.     

- 3) I eat fish, but I don’t like seafood. 

2. Is this your first readathon?


3. Do you have any specific goals for today? (# of books or pages to read?)

I want to read two books (or 500 pages).

4. Do you have any specific snacks, drinks, or books planned?

Snacks: I will have some chocolate-vanilla-strawberry ice-cream, and sin with some chocolate, though.

Drink: I usually drink water, nothing special in that department.

Book plans: I was saving Kresley Cole’s Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night for this event; otherwise I’ll grab what I feel in the mood for.

5. What hours do you plan on reading during? 

I’m planning on reading during noon to midnight European Central Summer Time – CEST (that is 6. a.m. to 6. p.m. US EST, if my calculation is correct).


  1. I have recently become addicted to The Vampire Diaries, too. Guilty pleasure! Here's hoping your first read-a-thon goes very well.

  2. I can understand why you watch cycling races to see the scenery -- its so beautiful! My dad does that with golf courses. Happy Reading!

  3. Mmmm fish sounds good. I could go for some scallops or shrimp right now. (I like seafood.)


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
