Miss Remmers wants to know what we've surrounded ourselves with to kick off the readathon:
" In this challenge we would like you to write a post on your blogs about your kick off strategy. What have you surrounded yourself with for these early hours of the challenge besides your books? Is there a coffee thermos, lucky book mark, snacks, pillow.... We want to know how you have prepared so you do not have to leave your cozy reading space (by the way - we'd like to know what is too.... (are you still in bed, a chair, the couch.....)"
Since I'm up at 5 a.m., I've got a comfy spot on the couch with one of the kids' blankets. I do have a special book mark that I reserve for books that are actually new, not used/library books. It's a little fabric bookmark with an embroidered rose on it. I have not had anything to eat or drink yet. I do wish I had cleaned up more last night, because I don't like reading when there's a mess. Book clutter is okay, but not real clutter!!
