Readathon - Hour One

Good morning!  I am starting just a little late this morning as my husband and I went out to breakfast - but thought I would participate in the first meme.

We have to answer these questions:

Where are you reading from today?
My home in the sunny (but cold) Midwest.

3 facts about me …
I have a schnauzer who was just dx as diabetic - so I have to give her 2 shots every day!

I enjoy playing piano and hope to start lessons again as soon as my youngest is in school.

I hope to go back to college to get a degree in library science.


How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I made myself a huge list of books - so that I would have a variety to pick from -
But I am not limiting myself to this list.

This World We Live In (The Last Survivors, Book 3)

The Secret Holocaust Diaries: The Untold Story of Nonna Bannister

Too Close to Home (Women of Justice Series #1)

Forget Me Not: A Novel (Crossroads Crisis Center)

Alexandra, Gone

How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly

A Certain Wolfish Charm

Deliver Us from Evil: A Novel

The Language of Secrets

Never Tell Our Business to Strangers: A Memoir

Lost Letter

Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure

When Turtles Fly: Secrets of Successful People Who Know How To Stick Their Necks Out

Birthmarked

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 only goal is to keep better track of how much I read every hour.  I didn't do that so well the last time!

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

I wouldn't say that I am a veteran - but what I have learned for me is not to be so rigid - if I start a book and don't like it - move on or you will get bogged down (and sleepy).  Have fun.
