5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? 
I'm just going to take it easy this year. I'm probably not going to make it very late, plus I have work tomorrow so I most likely will have to cut the 'thon short, but I always have fun! So that's what I'm planning on doing this time 'round as well. :)

  1. Hope you're enjoying the readathon! It's 1:25 am and I'm still reading. I'm drinking a full post of pumpkin spice coffee and planning to stay awake. We'll see how that goes. lol
