This is a bit delayed due to my computer problems during Hour One. I am not sure that they have actually resolved themselves, but at least they’ve stopped long enough for me to do this.

1)Where are you reading from today?

Roseville, California

2)Three random facts about me…

  • This is my seventh readathon. The first was spent mostly doing the readings for my big senior paper in my last semester of college.
  • I have a playlist full of indie rock goodness to help me get through some of the tougher hours.
  • I have more trouble coming up with random facts about myself than any one person should.

3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?

Currently, there are seven books in my TBR pile. This is kind of a low number, but they are all books I am genuinely excited to read, which is a bit of a departure. And if tradition holds, I will probably read three of them.

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)?

Usually, I set a goal of 1,000 pages and never meet it. This time, I want to meet it. I am off to a slow start due to my computer problems, but now that they appear to be over, I am going to dig in. Once I get a chai, of course.

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

Don’t be afraid to take a nap. Seriously.
