Mini challenge one!

1)Where are you reading from today? Northern Ireland2)Three random facts about me… My fave snack is crisps, I wear glasses & I love Taylor Lautner3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 5 books4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? I want to try and read all of the five books thats my target5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? This is my first read a thon but my advise would be to just enjoy!

*5.15PM Still reading Pretty Little Liars. Am getting into it now. Its getting interesting! I didn't realise before the read a thon how slow I read lol. On page 96/290. I have read more these pass few hours than before woop woop. Going grab a burger now for tea then sit out in the last of the today's sun and continue reading. Next check in at 7.30PM!

*7.30PM Had a few mishaps these last few hours, decided to go out and sit in the last few hours of the nice sun and got attacked by bees so now am back reading in my safe free from bees bedroom. Am on page 152/290 pages so I have read a similar amount of pages as in my last update about 50 are so. Am feeling my progress is a little slow. Next update at 9.45pm. Hopefully will have Pretty Little Liars finished or there about!

*9.45PM We are now nine hours into the read a thon! Not quite finished Pretty Little liars yet 215/290 pages only 75 more pages to go. I really want to have this finished by my next check in at 12AM and possibly another started! During this read a thon I have released that am a really slow reader! I don't think am going to be able to read all 5 books at the rate am going, but am going keep going. Thanks to everyone cheering me on so far. Your awesome.

*12.00AM Yay *claps* I finished Pretty Little Liars. I know it's one book and it has taken me 11hrs but I feel an acheivement I stuck at it and didn't give up! Now I know I have a list of another 4 books to read but am thinking for a little while am going blog hop round a few blogs to see how everyone else is doing. Now I was going to go to bed at 2AM til 6AM then get up and finish so technically I wasn't going to do the whole 24hrs but am going to see how I go I might stay up, finishing the first book has made me more awake for some reason. After I have done some blog hopping am actually going to try and finish an ebook I have started for review called Being rather than any of my books in my to read pile. But don't worry wotever books I dont get read in the read a thon I will read them at some point!! See everyone at 2PM!
