24 Hour Read-a-thon!

It's that time of year again! Time for the 24 hour read-a-thon. Why do I do this? Because it's an excuse to do nothing all day, but read, eat tasty snacks, read, and then read some more!

 You can also follow me on facebook and twitter by following the links on the sidebar or clicking the links above

  1. Wow, you've got quite a stack! Best wishes for a great readathon! Rah, rah, ree! Kick 'em in the knee ... and keep reading! Go Team Smarties!

    1. Having a big stack works best for me, so I can have variety. Go Team Smarties!

  2. Ummm, your snacks look amazing. I've never tried a real macaroon... definitely jealous there ! Happy reading :)

    1. I made pinwheels the day before, because they're so tasty, and a good snack to have. I never did get to the bagel bites, the macrooons sadly perished during hte readathon
