1. What part of the world are you reading from today?
I’m in Sydney, Australia.
Which means my start time is 11pm Saturday – most of my readathon will actually fall on my Sunday 21st October.
2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I like to use the readathon to help me finish those half-read books that have been lurking by my bed for too long – it’s very satisfying to finally finish a few of them. And when I get tired late Sunday afternoon, I love jumping into a few kids books. Their always fun, quick and easy to read, but also help me feel virtuous about getting some work reading done 🙂
3. Which snack are you most looking forward to?
My nan’s famous choc slice (which I made to help B18’s HSC study plans, but I’m sure he won’t mind if I have a few slices myself!)
4. Tell us a little something about yourself.
I’m also a pokemon go player (my why I love pokemon go post is here).
5. If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?
I also need to go for regular little walks to clear my head.
