Good morning! Today I am participating in the Readathon for the, um,
seventh?sixth time. I’m an old pro at this, it seems, and yet I am at the end (I hope) stages of a cold so ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN. I’m reading out of my coffee mug and drinking on my iPad, so everything should go smoothly.
I haven’t decided exactly what to do about update posts this time around, but then again, I have only had two sips of coffee so I’m not exactly at full strength yet.
What I do know is how to fill out the Hour 1 meme, so here it is:
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I’m in Boston, where Autumn has really arrived in full force after freezing temperatures last night and a chilly 38 degrees this morning. I’m glad to be all cozy in the house today!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Tricky question: I have no idea what to pick up after my graphic novel choices. Here are the library books I have on hand:
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I made a big pot of chilli last night and it came out pretty tasty, considering I had never made it before. But really I’m looking forward to the 2am pizza delivery we all know is going to happen.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I can’t tell if that weird noise I am hearing is my radiator or birds. I’m really excited to read this book because of the shoes:
I really like shoes, although I don’t think I’d wear those shoes. I’m also really into the font used in the title.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
For the last readathon I participated in I had baggies of nuts and fruit and other snacks all ready to enjoy throughout the ‘thon. This time around I have, um, grapes in a bag and a short walk to Whole Foods. It’s going to be that kind of day.
