Where are you reading from today? I am reading in "my cozy book nook" in Kansas City.
3 facts about me: I have been married for 27 years --- I have 3 children (ages 23 - nearly 21 - and 16) and I have 3 adorable yellow labs.
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Well, I consider all my TBR books on the nook's shelves to be at my disposal this weekend --- so maybe 150??
Do you have any goals for the read-athon? Just to have fun doing my most favorite activity for the entire weekend. I plan to read quite a bit over the 48 hour time period - but certainly not staying up for 24 hours straight (I am too old).
If you are a veteran read-athoner, do you have any advice for those participating for the first time? Well, I have only participated in one other read-athon, so I would hardly consider myself a veteran. However, the one thing that I learned last spring was to NOT compare myself to others. I am not a fast reader - nor do I aspire to be. I enjoy savoring each and every word. My advice is to make this an enjoyable experience for YOU --- whatever that means :)
Well, I am off to try to finish The Anthologist before the next post (which, by the way is a VERY excellent book and one that I know I will want to add to my personal library for future reference).
