Okay, so I'm having a...sloooooow start to the day, this morning.
So, I am very much looking forward to a day of reading (with a few hours of dissertation work intermixed). Be prepared for a day of posting because both Monica and I love participating in readathon mini-challenges. We'll also be hosting our own challenge later in the day.
If you'd still like to join the readathon or learn more about it, visit here.
But before I leave you to immerse myself in a nice, welcoming story, here are a few answers to kick the day off.
1)Where are you reading from today?
My home. Where the cats circle and the cable box makes a funny clicking noise.
2)Three random facts about me…
1) My dissertation is driving me crazy.
2) Teavana's Earl Grey Creme tea has become the official Tea of Me. It is delicious with ricemilk and LOTSA sugar. (But then, lots of sugar can make just about anything delicious.)
3) Did I mention I have turned into a crazy person?
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I don't have a specific number. I just need to make some serious bum-kicking progress in the books I've been reader. (For more on the books that will be bum-kicked, see the next question.)
4)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)?
I don't have any specific goals beyond getting through another twenty pages of my dissertation and getting through a large Chunk of Ursu's The Immortal Fire and Vanderpool's Moon Over Manifest. Both of which I have been stuck in the middle of for a couple of weeks.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
It really does help to read graphic novels, picturebooks or some other quick read to help you feel like you're making process. I'm just not certain if I'll be following my own advice....
