Dewey's #readathon preparations


It's almost here!  In mere hours we will begin!  I have many books ready to go for possible reads.  Here they are:

Those are the physical stacks.  Some ebooks I might read include:

The Gateway Through Which They CameStrigoi: The Blood BondThunderlight (The Dragonian Series #2)Perfected Freak of Nature (IFICS, #1)Shadows of the RealmGameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1)  

Now I obviously cannot read all of these in 24 hours.  I WISH!!  But these are my books to choose from for this readathon.  Plenty of variety from graphic novels, fairy tales, nonfiction, YA, fantasy, romance, sci-fi and more.  So I don't think I can ever be bored.  

The main goal I have is to get through some books I have already started at some point.  My currently reading shelf on goodreads is out of hand.  So many books I have picked up only to be put aside for a review title that is due, or having to return them if they are library books,etc.  

And I have yummies to eat and ready to go.  These include:
Berry Ice Tea
Soda (for the caffeine rushes I will need)
Pasta salad-with extra veggies, some meats and a bit of cheese tossed over with a very light balsamic dressing.  
a veggie tray (with an extra bag of carrot sticks)
Lemon crackers 
Gummy candies
Blue tortilla chips and dips
raisins and craisins
Moose Tracks Ice cream
frozen fruits -peaches, rasberries and blueberries to munch on or make quick smoothies

Plus other foods I can raid in the kitchen...

So I will be posting updates at least every few hours letting you know how I am doing.  Also, I am hosting one of the challenges for this so be sure to stop by later.

In addition to everything, I am reading for charity!
For every 100 pages I read I will volunteer 1 hour
For every book (novel) I complete I will volunteer 2 hours
Graphic novels, younger childrens books I will volunteer 1 hour

So a 300 page novel completed is worth 3 hours for the pages PLUS 2 hours completion.  Equals 5 hours.

And for you leaving relevant comments during the weekend on any of the Readathon posts (excluding the challenge post), I will do an extra 10 minutes!

All volunteer time will go to my local library or its affiliate bookstore.  This will be in going above and beyond my normal volunteering I do and will be completed within 30 days of the challenge (If I do a lot or get lots of comments, it might take awhile...)!  So comment away so my library gets extra help!! :)
