Read-a-Thon Fall 2009: Hour 1 Meme

Welcome to the Read-a-thon everyone! How many of you out there are like me, and you just don't have anyone who "gets" this whole Read-a-Thon-thing? My Mom doesn't get how I can spend the day reading when there are floors to mop and yard work to be done!

Okay. Here's the first mini-challenge:

Where are you reading from today? I am starting out in bed, and will move later to the recliner in the living room.

3 facts about me …(1) I'm a slow reader (2) I'm easily distracted (3) I have 8 animals (5 cats, 1 lovebird and 2 turtles) that are doing everything they can to keep me from reading today! Well, okay, the turtles aren't doing much to distract me. They just want food and sun, and are very quiet about the whole thing!

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I have 7 books in my pile, but I only expect to read 2-3 of them.

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 goals are: (1) Finish The Heretic Queen and The Postmistress and at least begin Hunger Games or City of the Dead. (2) Read at least 12-15 hours and 600 pages

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?Just enjoy yourself! Try not to get too distracted by the computer and blogging, but that is tough to do. If you get tired, take a little nap. The whole point is to have fun!

So have fund everyone!

I like the sound of the turtles! I find that even my chickens, the least needy of my dependents, will still come and jump on my back when I'm working in the garden...
