Readathon Hour 1 Meme

Where are you reading from today?
So Cal

3 facts about me …
This one is really hard at five in the morning, but I'll try to just spit three things out:
1.  I like to make things, anything, from scratch.
2.  I watch documentaries when I'm stressed.
3.  I like to watch exercise videos while eating.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?

Four main ones:
The Brothers Karamozov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Anne's House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery
Trouble by Gary D. Schmidt
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

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 have no goals!  Just trying to have a good time.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Do it your way--whether it be intense or easy-going.  Both can be fun.  I'm already expecting to nap (after only five hours of sleep last night!)


  1. Good Luck! Go Team Woodsworth! ---Happy Reading!

    I am loving reading the memes! Good luck for Daylon!

  2. Good luck!!! Have fun! Found ur blog, and now I'm following you!

  3. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

  4. I have The Brothers Karamozov on my TBR. What translation do you have? You can tell me after the read a thon. :)
    Thank you.

  5. Hey Shelley - thanks for your comment - good for you for supporting people in your community - the best gift is giving isn't it? I adore all the Anne of Green Gable books - I read and re-read them heaps in my youth :)
