It’s Hour 12, and I’ve just finished book 2: Shoeless Joe by W. P. Kinsella. It was a weirder book than I’d anticipated, and I liked it plenty. It reminded me, in a way, of Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury.

2) Three random facts about me…
– I am addicted to Us Weekly. (This week’s issue has not arrived yet, so twitching has commenced.)- I got a new glasses prescription this week, so either I’m going to be supercharged while reading today or will suffer eyestrain like never before.- I love tote bags. It’s almost a problem. 3) How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?10 (with about 20 others as back-ups)
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 plan to read 4 books today/tonight. That’s it! 5) If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?Read short-ish books! Way more satisfying on Read-a-Thon day.
