Update One: Kickoff Successful

Well, I've officially been reading two hours now. I actually feel sort of nervous, like if I'm not really careful, I'm going to miss out on something important. And that I need to read really fast... lol. I think I need to relax a little. But, I'm enjoying my first book! The Invention of Hugo Cabret. And it's a nice, quick read, and I'm almost done with it.

Miss Remmers' Review is doing a mini-challenge, but I'm afraid I don't have a great answer!

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.....)

I decided not to try to plan too much for the readathon since it's my first time participating. I just got up in enough time to start reading by 6 a.m. And I'm in my pj's still and my bathrobe. Maybe I'll stay like that all day? Haven't decided yet. =) I'm also still currently on the couch, trying not to let myself get to comfortable!! I saw other posts of people who had packed nice little snacks. I'm definitely thinking about doing that next time! But, it's kind of fun thinking I can pick up any book I want next!

I did pick up some Dr. Pepper however to help in those last hours when I'm getting tired . . . we'll see if it works. =)
