Yeah, geography isn't my strong suit either.

*points at invisible world map* I know USA, Canada and Mexico, of course. China is this big land mass here and Austrilia is here. I think this is Africa. Aaand, that's the extent of my geographical knowlage.

I can't wait to show you guys the prize I'm giving away for my mini-challenge. I'm so exited! I've never been a mini-challenge host before.

Congrats, Kanaye! I can't wait to see what you have people do for the mini challenge.
Can't you do math before the read-a-thon or part of it so that you don't have to do everything after?

Now that I don't have to study it anymore I miss math and geography.

Nope. Can't do it before. And doing it during would just make the joy of reading the joy of reading be muted by the annoyance of math.

At the end I need to calculate how many pages I read and how many minutes/hours.

My Mini-challenge post is all ready! I'm so exited! I sent it to the people to see if I need to edit anything but I haven't heard back from them yet.

This is actually the prize I'm giving away. I hope people like it and the person who wins will be happy with it.

Glad you remembered, Klinneah!

We are actually on hour 9 now. Everyone, in the whole world, is on hour 9.

Don't forget to do some mini-challenges too!

Wh-what?! It's readathon day?? Crapcrapcrap.

I suppose I'll just have to wait until tomorrow to do this in fun spirit, as I'm still sick and feeling sluggish. :|

Good luck, everyone!

Congrats on the second book, Kanaye-dear!

Maybe next year, you need to let CPA know a few days in advance! (Or PM people directly?)

That's what this thread was for, Lagie-dear.

Next October I'll send out PMs though.

Gah. Its been a bad day for Mini-challenge links.

I gave them the correct one but for some reason it has all this jumble after it, 2012/4/blah blah blah. And its the wrong link. I gave them the correct one, originally. I don't know why its done that.

I finished the 24 hour read-a-thon! Did anyone else?

I finished 5 books and read for a total of 17 hours and 22 minutes. That's worse than last time! *pout* Well, I didn't listen to any audiobooks this time.

I'm now exhausted. Forgive me as I pass out....

Even if it's worse than last time it's still great, Kanaye!

I kind of finished. I decided to go to sleep around hour 13 (2 am for me). And started again once I got up.
I haven't found a way of sleeping in so that when the read-a-thon starts I've recently had 6-8 hours of sleep. It's impossible for me to wake up later than 9-10 am xd.png

That means you missed my Mini-challenge! *pretends to sniff*

I'm a night person, I'm used to staying up all night reading.

Waking up at 8am and having to function was hard. I was fine once I hit about 6pm.

I love the read-a-thon cause I actually accomplish something by doing it.

I wish there was one in the summer months, it'd be easier for me.
I actually did better than last year, I think. (can't double-check because the blog I used last October is gone TT_TT)
