The Hour 1 mini-challenge asks readers to answer a few questions. The Girl (age 9) is hopped up on sugar (just finished a hot chocolate) and is REALLY eager, so we'll let her go first.
3 facts about me:
The Girl: My favorite color is pink. My favorite dog is a beagle. My favorite tv show is SpongeBob Squarepants.
Anna: I'm addicted to books. I love naps. I'm wearing shorts right now even though it's still chilly.
How many books are in your Read-a-Thon TBR pile?
The Girl: 12
Anna: 10...a mix of WWII, poetry, Vietnam challenge reads, YA
Any goals for the Read-a-Thon?
The Girl: I want to read at least 3 books.
Anna: I'd like to finish the 2 poetry books and at least 1 other book, but really, I just want to have fun!
Advice for first-time Read-a-Thoners?
The Girl: You don't have to stay up all night. Turn on your reading eyes because it's a long day. Have a good time, and it doesn't matter if you don't finish a whole book. My mom didn't finish one last time, but she was a good sport.
Anna: Take frequent breaks, whether to snack, participate in the Read-a-Thon mini challenges or cheer on your fellow readers. And most importantly, have fun!
I'm sure we'll be back online for another few updates, but we'll see...
