24 Hour Read-A-Thon/ Hour 1

Dewey at The Hidden Side of A Leaf is hosting a 24 Hour Read-A-Thon today and I am pulling double duty as a host and as a cheerleader.

We’re starting off with a meme. How fun!

Where are you reading from today?
New York City

3 facts about me …
I’m a songwriter, among other things.
I play bocce in a league on Sundays.
I like to have dinner parties.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
14 on the night stand and many other on the floor beside my bed and sitting in my window sill. Overboard? Definitely but I like to be prepared. I’m also afraid I might get bored reading the same thing all day. i usually have lots if breaks in my reading since I read on the train and between other activities. We’ll see

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)?
Nope. Since this my first time, I just want to see how it goes.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

Oh yeah, and typos people. They will be out in force today as I am choosing speed in getting posts up over accuracy and presentation. Consider yourself warned. 🙂

  2. Good luck in your reading. I didn’t know you live in New York. I’ve only been there once (when I was 3 years old) and I don’t remember it. I’ve been wanting to visit there for years.
