Alright. I decided that I would do a game plan on what I am planning on doing for the Cram-a-thon. I wanted to create a plan to succeed my goals for this weekend. I am taking this from my previous experiences with my last two Book-tube-a-thons. The one year that I succeed, I did a lot of planning and prepping while the one that I failed was due to the lack of prep and planning. Here is that plan.
Friday – I have work in the morning and I am also working at my local county fair as one of the vendors. I am planning on bringing the children books as well as the graphic novels. I want to get all the short stuff in one day. Thus completing the challenge of reading two books in one day. This will cover Oh the Places you’ll Go, Once Upon A Banana, Ms. Marvel Vol. 2, and Rat Queens Vol. 1.
Saturday. I will also be working on Saturday morning. However, I am hoping on getting my new glasses that day. In addition, I have a feeling that I mom will ask me to help around the house since there is a lot of prepping for the new washer and dryer. Though this day, I am planning on reading Around the World in 80 Days. I am hoping that this book will not take more than two hours to read.
Sunday – Will be the makeup day, to catch up with these books.
Monday – The backup day incase I am really behind.
In addition to all that reading, I am hoping to read 100 pages of Trouble each day. The book is 375 pages longs. Right now I am on page 90. I am hoping to get to page 100 by the end of tonight. However, I am discovering that this book is a little hard to get through. It is one of those books that you need to take your time and just read it. You cannot power through it. If I cannot get through 100 pages a day, I want to at least get through 75 pages. If I do 75 pages a day, it will take me the whole entire weekend to finish this book.
I also have the backup plan that I will split Friday’s plan into both Friday and Saturday and Move Saturday’s plan to Sunday and leave Monday as the backup day. However, I am really hoping that I will be able to keep up with this plan.
Wish me luck and happy reading!
