Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

If you want the full details of the event, schedule etc, please follow this link: http://www.nosaferplace.co.uk/2017/06/zoes24hourreadathon.html

As many of you know, I am struggling to do much at the moment so I wanted to do an event that I could do from the comfort of my home but would still be a challenge. I absolutely adore reading so the reading won't be a challenge...but the staying awake might be!

I was diagnosed with SVT (Suparventricular Tachycardia) when I was 17, which essentially means I have a very fast heart rate. I had two small heart operations to try and fix this, which sadly both failed. When I was 19, I was also diagnosed with PoTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). This chronic illness has changed my life drastically, I can't do half the things I used to be able to do and I've had to find my own way of doing things. If you'd like to know more about my conditions and how they affect me, please click here: http://www.nosaferplace.co.uk/2017/05/what-is-pots.html

I have managed to organise this event single-handedly and so many of my amazing blogger and author friends have agreed to take part! As I will be reading for 24 hours, I will have scheduled posts going every hour over on my blog (nosaferplace.co.uk), which so many of you have kindly agreed to write a guest blog for me to keep people involved. I will be doing polls over on my Twitter of what books you'd like me to read during the 24 hours in the next few weeks and there will be posts on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and my website. Use the hashtag: #Zoes24HourReadathon to spread awareness, I'd love lots of you to take part!
