It's finally here! I'm so excited to be participating in Dewey's 24-hour read-a-thon again and I'm also hosting a mini-challenge later today. Be sure to check that out. To start off (I'm only about two hours late getting up...as usual) I'm doing the hour 1 meme:
Where are you reading from today?
From the comfort of my recliner chair, bed, and possibly porch (ok, in Utah)
3 facts about me
-I burned to a crisp an attempted batch of lemon bars (left the apartment while they were still in the oven) - won't be snacking on those!
-I'm one of those wishing that the hot summer weather would come back...
-Though now that I said that, I really want a cup of hot chocolate and a scone!
That ain't brownies, friends!
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
That looks like eleven - plus an audio and one on my kindle. Make that thirteen.
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon?
I'm not going to be expecting much of myself as far as time commitments. I'd like to get a handful of books finished, but I'll be happy with three. I'm also hoping to do a few mini-challenges, but not nearly as many as I did last time. More time reading for me. I'm aiming for about 12-14 hours of reading time today.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Get comfortable - you don't want to have a crick in your neck from all that reading!
