Read-a-Thon: 1st book

I’ve finished reading my first book of the day, and it was a great choice. I’ll probably 4-star The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt when I add it to my Shelfari list. And I’ll write all about it later. I got stuff to say.
But for now, I’m getting ready to launch into Book 2. I’m not going to announce what it is, because I don’t want to hex it. Let’s just say, it’s one of these
Also — My book line-up today is filled with lots of murder and mayhem. In part, that’s by design, because I’ve included a couple of mystery authors I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. And I intentionally added some faster-paced stuff to the mix. But man, there’s a lot of violent death in my TBR today. That’s jolly!
What else I’ve been doing: Visited the Read-a-Thon page; visited a few blogs; ate oatmeal, drank coffee, and then ate some almond cake (true to form, the Read-a-Thon makes me ravenous); put on daytime clothes
Where I’ve been reading: my chair at the kitchen table; rocking chair in the living room (the best room in the house during the morning hours — and there’s bright sunshine today!)  
I think I might try to read from every seat in the house today. Why not?
How long I’ve been reading: 2.75 hours
How many books I’ve finished reading: 1
Book 2, I hope I like you.
