Sarah Says Read Summer Mini Readathon: First Mini-Challenge

For the first mini-challenge, Sarah asked us to answer 5 questions:

1. Tell everyone three random things about yourself:
-I have more than one pair of fuzzy slippers, I have extra fuzzy ones for when it's REALLY cold and regular ones for all other times. I even wear them in the summer, my feet are always cold.
-I have a stuffed penguin I sometimes cuddle with if a book gets really scary/emotional and I need to hug something and the boyfriend isn't around.
-I would love to get a dog or a bunny, but it's not possible yet with the limited space we have at the appartment.

2. Is this your first readathon?
Nope, I've participated in Dewey's Read-a-Thon and the Bout of Books read-a-thon before. I love readathons!!

3. Do you have any specific goals for today? (# of books or pages to read?)
Not really, I really wanted to finish Shadow of Night and it would be nice to finish at least half of Pushing the Limits, but it's all very relaxed and if I don't make it, that's ok too.

4. Do you have any specific snacks, drinks, or books planned?
No :( I'm such a dope and forgot to plan ahead! I was at the spa all day with my mom yesterday and forgot to buy snacks and now I'm snackless... But as I'm not really tasting much of anything I'm eating due to a stuffed nose, it's less bad :)

5. What hours do you plan on reading during?
9AM to 9PM my time.

If you're participating, leave me a link to your answers!


  1. My feet are always cold, too! I don't wear slippers, but I have a ton of those super warm, fuzzy socks ... they're soooo comfortable! I wear them all summer, too, unless I'm out on the deck, which is usually nice and toasty on the feet.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who didn't plan for snacks! I feel so boring ...

    Sorry to hear you're sick -- I hope the readathon makes you feel better!


  2. Oooh a spa day sounds so fun! Good luck on reading as much as you hope to! I'm so glad that my nose isn't as stuffy today as it has been the past couple days, because I cannot focus on reading when I'm all stuffy. It's too distracting and I end up sleeping a lot and watching tv. Hope you feel better!

  3. Oh!! I hope you get to Pushing the Limits, I finished it last week and I thought it was pretty good. I wish I had some fuzzy slippers! I used to collect Sylvester the Cat slippers but then my doggie decided they were chew toys so I'm not allowed to have them anymore.

    Good luck with the read-a-thon, Daisy!
