Read-a-thon Fun Has Begun!

Hello Fellow Read-a-thoners and others!

I am so happy to say - here I am! Awake and reading! My pile has changed somewhat, since I finished a few books there and added a few more. I still don't have much of an idea of how much time to read I'll have, but I am going to try my hardest. I was also very excited to learn that author Becca Fitzpatrick who just published Hush, Hushis doing a signing today very near me! I haven't read the book yet, simply because the library hasn't yet acquired it, but now I am going to just have to purchase it (tragic, I know). I'll let you know how that goes, especially since I have a tendency to either say stupid and embarrassing things at signings or remain totally silent.

Here also is the hour 1 (oops) meme:

Where are you reading from today?
From my comfy lazy boy chair (in the great state of Utah)

3 facts about me …
I'm a college librarian (with a fascination for YA books)
I like to paint in my spare time that isn't spent reading
I'm also working on writing a few books (still in the very early stages though)

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
It's changing so much and I don't really have a set number, but I certainly have a lot to choose from.

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 goals are very up in the air. I'd like to finish two or three books, maybe?

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Only my second time participating, but if you start to hate reading, please stop. You don't want to ruin that fabulous book-relationship you have!

Anywho, I am starting out with a little bit of this and that:

Daylight Runner which I'm halfway through already
The Name of This Book is Secret for fun
Betsy-Tacy and Tib for a fast read

Happy reading all!

If you buy through my Amazon linkage,
I will get a very small percentage


  1. Hey! I saw your pin in the Google map. It looks like I'm just north of you. Happy reading!

  2. Welcome to the read-a-thon! Enjoy these first few hours-they'll fly by! I'm sure you'll do great. :D

    Your advice is great! :)

  3. Happy Read-a-Thon day! I hope the first few hours have been treating you well. Have fun today and enjoy the wonderful books you have lined up :)

  4. Taking a break from reading to say – have a great day and have fun!

  5. Good advice! I haven't hated reading yet, but it's stretching, for sure!

    Keep it up!

  6. I'm jealous of the lazy boy....

  7. alison, hopefully we'll get to meet at one of the Utah blogger get-togethers!

    Thanks everyone!
