Classics' Club Readathon: Sense and Sensibility

Classics Club Readathon January 2013

So today is the first-ever Read-a-thon by the Classics' Club.  Now, I have seen these things before and have admired people's determination to read ALL day--they are going for 24 hrs!  I did sign up, however, I molded it to my particular style today.  I had A LOT of grading to do (which btw is still not done--ugh) so my reading of Sense and Sensibility was going to be my break.  It actually worked out very well to do that because I would grade for an hour, read for an hour, grade for an hour.... you get the idea!  I thought that I would take a different break to blog and then maybe get a bit more reading in before bed.

Oh and since I didn't do a start-up post...better late than are the questions for the Classics Club to come peruse and see tomorrow for the wrap-up :)

  1. Snacks and Beverages of Choice: Did the pretzels and Sprite thing today
  2. Where are you reading from today? Home...all over.  I have the audio, Kindle, and print versions to choose from.  Audio for the treadmill and cleaning portion, Kindle for the eating portion, and print for everything else
  3. What are your goals for the Readathon? Get some reading and grading done :P
  4. What book(s) are you planning on reading? Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  5. Are you excited? Of course!! I get to start one of my reading goals for the year: The Complete Works of Jane Austen

How excitng - an Austen-fest coming your way this year.
Persuasion is my favourite, but I enjoy all the others as well for different reasons and at different times.
Good luck with the grading and the re-start on your blog (getting involved with a community like Classics Club is a great way to go about it).
