Read-a-Thon: Hour 1

First-Hour Meme!

The first hour of the Read-a-Thon is coming to an end, and with it comes a meme:

1. Where are you reading from today? I'm starting out on the couch -- and may stay there! But it's very comfy on this rainy morning.

2. Three facts about me. Hummmm. I love to cook, I love to read, I love to walk.

3. How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Waaaaaaaaay too many!!!

4. 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 real goal is to stay awake the whole time, reading at first and then changing to cheering (go team Transcendentalists!!)

5. If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Relax and have fun! It's not a contest.

Good luck everyone!

I'm still on my first book: A Friend of the Family by Lauren Grodstein.

It is a rainy morning here as well! I started out reading in bed, but hunger prompted me to get up. Read away!

There's no way I could stay up for the whole 24 hours! Have fun!

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!

Those are much better facts than what I came up with! ;)

Reading on the couch on a rainy day sounds perfect for the event! Happy reading, Beth!

I admire you your goal. I might try some other time, but for now I just want to feel the spirit of the Read-a-Thon whilst officially signed up. ^-~

*waves pompoms* I have way too many books too, but I'm going to dig into the worst of it now and see how far I'll get before I give up and go "Should've listened to Nymeth!" ^-~

Go~ Beth!

I too am on the couch! I may relocate to my bed at some point though as well. You know, for variety and all!

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

Good luck staying awake the whole time. I'm going to try my hardest but I doubt I'll make it. lol.
