I’m reading today!

Today I’ll be participating in the 24-Hour Read-A-Thon! I love this idea for so many reasons, but my personal motivation is quite simple: to rediscover my love for reading. I’ve let it lapse in recent years, choosing other entertainment over books and purposeful reading, and I truly do miss it when that happens. So today will be all about the written word! I also love that “print” now includes text on a screen, so I’ll be mixing up my selections throughout the day to keep interest alive and resist the urge to nap (much). Some of the items I have scheduled for the day include:

  • The Yankee Years
  • Bridge to Terabithia
  • You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried
  • Ford County
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Mud Hens and Mavericks: Illustrated Travel Guide to Minor League Baseball
  • and an assortment of magazines and blog posts that have recently piled up

A big part of the Read-A-Thon includes blogging about the event and about personal progress, as well as participating in hourly challenges designed to keep the mind fresh. Click over to phrenetical :: a state of mind to follow my read-a-thon journey.
