24 Hour Read-a-Thon Hour 1

Where are you reading from today? My couch, my bed, my bookroom, I intend to move around!

3 facts about me … 1. I had trouble sleeping last night because I was so excited about this. It's like Christmas morning when you were six! 2. I lack computer skills....this might be obvious. 3. I have a Great Dane who will be my reading companion today.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Nine or ten of my own books, seven library books, 464 unread books on shelves all over the house.

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? My only goal is to really, really enjoy this.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Not a veteran....this is my first time.

Wow, I'm astounded by the number of TBR books you have. And jealous, really jealous!

It sounds like you'll have a great time. If you like short stories, I have a short story challenge up on my blog at

I was late posting it so I've decided to let it run til the read-a-thon is over.
