Read-A-Thon Mini Challenge #1

Where are you reading from today?

I'm reading from Lincoln, Nebraska.
I spent the first hour in our living room in a comfy leather, wing-back chair. Technically, it's my husband's chair... :)

3 facts about me …

I'm married to my best friend.
I work in a bookstore (B&N).
I love to cooking, traveling and photography.

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

I think I have about a dozen, but that doesn't include all the books on my TBR shelves. I'm just winging it and not sticking to any sort of a reading plan/schedule.

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)?

Nope. Just to read throughout the day and night for as long as I can stay awake.

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

I'm a newbie.


  1. Happy reading today!

  2. Yay for another Nebraskan! Happy reading!

  3. Les, how did we let you get away with being a newbie this time around? I could've sworn you'd been a Reader before. I hope you're having a great time and knee deep in a wonderful book!

  4. Enjoy your reading! Enjoy some good coffee too :-)

  5. Taking a break from reading to say – have a great day and have fun!

  6. Good luck with the read-a-thon, Les! Happy reading!

  7. I'm so glad you're joining in this time! Now I wish I had a comfy leather chair to curl up in and read. ;)
    Happy read-a-thon!

  8. Kristen - Thanks for cheering me on! It was great to have such encouragement.

    WordLily - Thank you!! I've visited your blog and am anxious to learn more about you. I'll be visiting!

    Andi - I have no idea why I never joined in on this challenge. Timing? I know last October sucked, but what about the previous challenges?? Who knows. All I know is I had a great time and I'll do it again in April. :) Thanks for visiting during such a crazy day!

    RC - Thank you! I had several cups of very good coffee. :)

    Diane - Thanks for stopping by. It was a fun challenge, wasn't it?

    Lit Feline - Thank you!! I wish I had stayed awake longer, but I'm tired today, so maybe it was a good thing I quit when I did.

    Nat - I'm hooked. As I told Andi, I'll definitely be back in the spring. What a fun challenge. And not as difficult as I thought. Well, I quit early but I stayed focused throughout the entire day.
