Read-a-Thon: Starting Post

Read-a-Thon: Starting Post

Yippee, yippee!!!! The fall Read-a-Thon has started! I'm so excited -- I have my new (and faster) Internet connection in place (long story, but there was a reason I was unexpectedly missing in action Thursday and Friday), my food is ready, my Book Buddy is here -- and I have a pile of books to read.

Last week I wrote about my Read-a-Thon Stack. It was kind of a 24-week stack instead of a 24-hour stack, but never mind that. Sad to say, I've added to the pile. Some of the books I already owned and some are new, but I have three text novels and three graphic novels to throw into the mix.

I am starting my Read-a-Thon with [drum roll, please!] A Friend of the Family, which is a novel that I didn't think would be for me. But I started looking through the first chapter, and I'm hooked. So I'm off and reading!

Good luck to everyone!!!! I hope to post an update every hour or two, but I'm not totally sure. I will definitely be on Twitter.

Oooh! A friend of the Family! Can't wait to hear what you think of that. It is in my pile too.

Best of luck today!

Awesome choices! I'm starting off with a graphic novel (my first) as well!

Good luck :)

Welcome to the read-a-thon! Enjoy these first few hours-they'll fly by! I'm sure you'll do great. :D (I've got Fables lined up for later!)

I am so curious to see how much people actually read during a read-a-thon :D

Let the games begin! :-)

I just started A Friend of the Family too although I suspect you'll finish it first what with you reading and me cheering today. LOL!

Looks like you are all ready to go! Of course, by now, you've been reading a while. :-) Good luck and happy reading, Beth!

I'm glad to hear that you're hooked on A Friend of the Family, because I need to read that soon.

Beth, I'm way behind on blog posts, as I participated in the read-a-thon myself, but your stack looks great and I'll be waiting for your reviews (if they're not somewhere buried deep in the stash of unread blog posts ever since the read-a-thon!
