Musing Monday

Musing Mondays (BIG) Musing Monday is hosted by Becca of Just One More Page. Pop over and read lots of interesting comments & post your own. This week Babe-in-the-woods-Becca asks...

Are you planning on participating in the upcoming 24 Hour Read-a-thon (either as a reader or cheerleader)? Have you made any preparations for the event? And, veterans out there, any tips you’d like to share with the newbies?

As much as I like the idea, sad to say I can not see how I could do 24 hours of a read-a-thon as either participant or cheerleader (even without #4) for these reasons…
1) I need my sleep.
2) 24 hours away from my life = days of preparation before hand and weeks of catching up afterward.
3) kids to feed, taxi to run, Sunday School to teach, responsibilities to front up to.
4) and probably most importantly, I’m celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary with a night in the city and a show on the 24th October I think MGM might object to me taking my books along this time.

Hope all read-a-thoners enjoy the experience!

I'm not doing it either. I just have too many things going on, but I wish everyone who is participating good luck with it!

Happy 25th anniversary!!!

It is much easier to participate with almost grown children, I don't feel guilty telling them they are on their own!

Happy Anniversary!

Well it's hard to argue with you when you have logical reasons like that!
