24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Look at me!



I’m reading!

The Carnivore, by Mark Sinnett

Where are you reading from today?

I’m in NYC and right now I’m kicking things off from the bed.

3 facts about me …

I am a lover of historical fiction (I discovered that through blogging, popcorn is my favorite food and I play bocce in a league.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?

I think I started with 6 or 7 but that number keeps going up as I remember more books I would like to read.

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)?

Not really, though it would be nice to finish at least one book.  I want to read as much as I can and have a good time with all my read-a-thon friends.

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

Preview a chapter or two of you books so that you know you will be reading something to keep you hooked, and keep them mostly under 300 pages.

    One day I hope to be able to participate too, but my children are too young to let me have 24 hours to read….
