Read-a-thon First Hour

October 22, 2011 read-a-thon 1

I do realize I’ve been reading an hour or so.  I was somewhat late due to breakfast, but then I got started and then I took a short in chair nap.  Have I mentioned what a morning person I am not!!

First up, some questions in a meme form

1)Where are you reading from today?
2)Three random facts about me…
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
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)?
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?

Here are my answers:

1.I am reading from a hotel.  My husband is working, a planning meeting, and so I’m at the Dolphin Resort, Walt Disney World.  I’m starting in my room.
2.  a. I am the youngest of 4 children
b. When asked I always say my favorite pastime is reading.
c. I have 3 children, and 2 of them do not enjoy reading, they have slight learning disabilities and have never enjoyed it.
3. I brought with me 5 books, a new magazine and a loaded Kindle.  I had 2 books in progress when I left my house.
4.My goals, I’d like to read 3 or more books, a rather lofty goal.  I’d also like to visit 10 new blogs or more to cheer others along
5. This is my first time!!

    Woohoo! Those are some great goals! And I am so sorry to hear that 2/3 of your kids don’t like to read. Sadness! And… I’m totally jealous that you’re at Walt Disney World. I mean, kudos for ‘thonning while you’re there, but me? Nope. I’d be Disneying it up!

    You’re gonna rock today! Especially with your hubbie not around to distract you! YAY! Read-A-Thon!
