#Readathon: Shel's First Update: Where I'm Reading From

Good morning, fellow Readathoners!

I woke up this morning refreshed and ready to read!  (Plus, the coffee is brewing.  That'll keep me excited!)

It's dangerous, but I think I am going to start out the morning reading in bed.  Mostly because one of my cats is sleeping on my foot.  If I move she may scratch.  And I'm not opposed to warm feet.

So, before I dare to move to actually pour the coffee, here are my answers to the meme-challenge on the readathon website:

1.  My To Be Read pile technically consists of hundreds of books stacked around my bedroom in out of the way places.  But I really want to finish reading Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin and Black Hole Sun by David Macinnis Gill.  After those are done?  Who knows.

2.  I don't have any specific goals aside from having some devoted reading time.  (Which is a huge deal for me!  My past several weeks have been dominated by various projects, so I haven't gotten much reading done.)

3.  This is my third-ish(?) readathon.  The first time I ignored some advice to start out reading some short books or picturebooks to begin on a high "look at me finish books!  YAY!" note, and that readathon draaaaaagged.  The second time, I made sure to include some short books, and that readathon went much more smoothly.  So take breaks from longer books with wee-little-baby short ones!  That is all the wisdom I have.


  1. Good Luck with your reading. Pace yourself and remember to take breaks when you need them. Wish a had a snazzy cheer for you. Here goes: Yes, you can! :)

  2. Good luck with reading today. I am sure you will have a blast (as long as your cat doesn't make your foot fall asleep all day)

    Can you turn off word verification so it is easier to cheer?

    I will join kinna....YES YOU CAN!
