Hello, Read-a-Thon!


Good morning, Read-a-Thon!

This lazy bum’s been reading only for 1/2 hour so far, but here I am , after quite an obstacle course of a week.
So today I’m just going to relax and read.
Over at Read-a-Thon HQ, there’s a meme happening, and here’s how it goes:
1) Where are you reading from today?My home in the American Midwest
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.
My first book today is Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void by Mary Roach. I’m on page 33, and I’m completely in love with this book. Am almost regretting having chosen it for book 1 of the day, since now the bar has been set rather high.
Have eaten the breakfast of champions (oatmeal!) and drunk the first cup of coffee.
Back to my book… very happily back to my book…
