What are you doing to keep up your stamina and energy through the readathon? Are you taking breaks - having energy snacks - taking a brief walk - taking a shower - getting a quick nap in like Winston Churchill - eating supper - or just resting your eyes?

Share some of your tips for increasing your stamina during readathons and staying focused.

We can all learn from each other - energy drinks - smoothies - coffee - what are your secrets?

Francie Grice 30-min power nap and plenty of water. I do have an occasional cup of coffee and nuts and fruit (nectarines for this time of the year) as snacks.

Well that sounds interesting - I might find it hard to get up - do you set an alarm. Fruit is good. Thanks Francie.

Francie Grice Yes, I do set an alarm; otherwise, I might sleep for days ;)
