Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon: Part 1

Saturday, April 9, 2011

It's begun and I've got a huge cup of coffee and stack of books. Here's the first post from Dewey. We're asked to answer the following questions....

1)Where are you reading from today?
2)Three random facts about me…
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
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)?
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?

1) Indianapolis, IN
2) a. I've been to 14 countries and 31 states within the USA (I don't count driving thru/Four Corners/airports)
b. I love thunderstorms more than I can say
c. I'm 26 (27 next month!) and one year into married life
3) 8, we'll see how that goes.
4) No, I just want to have fun and get through as many books/mini challenges as I can. Maybe next time I'll make some goals.
5) This is my first!

Ok, back to reading. I'll post an update on how I'm doing in an hour or two. Good luck everyone!

I hope you're having fun! I think I'd like to try a Dewey 24-Hour Read-a-thon someday.
