The first activity of the read-a-thon is a little introduction meme. Here goes:
Where are you reading from today?
Right now I'm on the love seat in my family room, wrapped in a favorite blanket, with my feet up on the ottoman. Later I'll be venturing out of the house, as I fulfill some other commitments for the day and also try to get a few tasks accomplished - while still getting in as much reading as possible.
Three facts about me:
- Although I love words, in my professional life I work with numbers.
- The "big four" for me are Diet Coke with Lime, libraries, chocolate, and sleep.
- I'm addicted to social media, and you can find me on Facebook, goodreads, and Twitter.
I don't have any organized pile this time, but I've got about 30 library books and at least a dozen other titles right at hand. There is no chance I'll run out of reading material!
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (e.g., number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
Because I wasn't able to clear my schedule today, and because I've just finished a busy week and need to catch up on some sleep, my goal is to actively participate in at least twelve hours of the read-a-thon. I'd also like to finish at least three books.
Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
This is my eighth read-a-thon, and I recommend that everyone just do what seems like fun and enjoy!
