So The Girl and I are just getting ready to jump into our pile of books, but first we thought it would be fun to participate in the introduction meme. I don't think we'll be posting too much today, but we figured posting in Hour 1 would get us pumped up.
Here are the questions:
Where are you reading from today?
We're at home in the Baltimore, Md.-area. We're going to stretch out in our recliners, and since it's going to be in the 70s today, we'll probably bring some chairs outside and read there, too.
3 Facts About Us
Me: I like to take naps on the weekend so doing nothing but reading will be a challenge, I hate doing housework so anything that keeps me away from the dishes is awesome, and I love to read in complete silence so that fact that my husband is watching a loud movie right now isn't going to help. :)
The Girl: I'm happy to be staying up past my bedtime, I'm going to read more books than my mom, and I love dinosaurs and dogs.
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
You can see our selections here. The Girl says she has 9 books that she wants to focus on and a pile of other books in case she needs a change of pace. I have 10, and we have 3 that we hope to read together. We don't expect to finish them all, but we like to have choices.
Do you have any goals for the Read-a-Thon?
The Girl says her goal is to read more books than me and stay up longer than me. (She'll probably do it, too.) I don't really have a goal in terms of books or pages read; I just want to spend a whole day reading and enjoy every minute of it.
Any advice for first-time Read-a-Thoners?
Nope, since this is our first time. We'd be thrilled to have the veterans' advice!
