Let's Begin: Read-a-thon April 2011

Pin It


Hey everyone! Today I devote myself to Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-thon. If you don't know what that is, go to the website. Here are the books I have on tap for the day.

*What the Librarian Did- Karina Bliss (Already started this one.)
*The Man in the Brown Suit- Agatha Christie
*Multiple Choices- Claire Cook
*Princess Academy- Shannon Hale
*The Fossil Hunters of Sydney Mines- Jo Ann Yhard
*The Impostor's Daughter- Laurie Sandell
*The Canadian Housewife: An Affectionate History- Rosemary Nearing

And on the ipod is Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels.

 This first hour, we have some questions to answer:

1)Where are you reading from today? Nova Scotia, Canada
2)Three random facts about me… Not a morning person, I love raspberries, I drink about 5 cups of coffee a day.
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Seven.
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)? Nope, just planning on having fun.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? Relax. This is not a race, nor are you being graded. We won't kick you out of the club if you can't do a full 24 hours. Hell, I've never done 24 hours yet and I've done the Read-a-thon since the beginning. Just have fun!

Okay, so my first book is What the Librarian Did. Might be a bit too sexy for this early but who cares.

Have fun!

  3. I have a book by Shannon Hale in my pile too! I actually hope to get to it today - I've had it hanging around for far too long.

  5. I started reading Black Heels on the Pioneer Woman's blog but never finished it before she pulled it down to have it published.

    Happy reading!
