Read-a-thion Hour 1

Where are you reading from today?

3 facts about me …
1. I am not a morning person, but I still got up at 5am to begin the readathon with a bang. (my friends think I'm a bit crazy)
2. I love studying about islands, particularily non-tropical ones. (My favorite are Jersey, Guernsey and Sark)
3. I participates in TOM's go barefoot Day on April 8th (I made cardboard shoes to go into stores)

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I have 17 more books on my TBR pile, but I am reasonably sure I won't finish more than 10.

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)? My only goal is to have lots of fun and read out the experience. I'll create goals next time based on this time

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

  1. I got up at 5 too, it is hard on the eyes :) Keep up the reading!! You are doing really good, just as long as you remember to have some fun too.

  2. Islands are magical--I have a fondness myself for fiction set on north islands!

  3. Welcome to the read-a-thon!! I get up at 5 too although I am not a morning person either. Today I started off with an audiobook, which might sound counterintuitive, but I really enjoyed listening, it kept me awake and made me feel more alert.

  4. I hope you enjoy your first readathon. I consider myself a Jesus loving technology teacher, too!

    You are doing well and I just became a follower. I'd love to have you stop by and become a follower!

    And, hey, I'm not REALLY French...just a wannabe!
