Start Up! #Readathon (Update)

It's almost Readathon time. I'm up a bit earlier to get ready, debating whether I should have a run now or during Readathon. Then I need to put the coffee on and get started!

But first, I must answer the Pre-Readathon survey questions:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
As always, you'll find me here in my living room in cloudy Nova Scotia, Canada.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
The Humans is supposed to be really good.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I confess I already started snacking on them: lemon squares. I love them so!

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I've book blogging here at Chrisbookarama for over nine years. 

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?
I've been participating in Dewey's Readathon since the first one. It's a big part of my book blogging experience. I always just relax and have a good time. I plan to do the same today!

See you all here later- or on Twitter @Chrisbookarama!

Hour 7:

I finished one book (The Enchanted). I have one audiobook on the go: Pretty Is. I took a run while listening to it. 

Snacks: Lemon Squares and London Fog Latte (homemade). Breakfast: French toast and bacon. 

Hour 12:

1. What are you reading right now?
I've been listening to Pretty Is while knitting.  I'm also starting The Drunken Botanist.

2. How many books have you read so far?
Three: One novel and two comics.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I'm hoping The Drunken Botanist will be fun.

4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Not many interruptions but I did have a glass of wine and had to have a nap. 

5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
No surprises but I'm having a hard time settling into a book.

Finished Books:

The Enchanted. Guess what? This is not a fairy tale. It is about PRISON! I know! Bad choice for today. Grim stuff. 237 pages

Lumberjanes #11 and #12 Need something light and fun after that brutal read from this afternoon.


  1. Best of luck with the readathon today!

  2. Lemon squares sounds delicious! And we totally started in on a few of our Readathon snacks last night (my nieces came over to participate in their first Readathon ever). Good luck today, hope The Humans is good!

  3. I hope the sun comes out. Yesterday was so nice! I was hoping for a repeat. Hope you have a great reading day!

  4. Now I want some lemon squares! :) Happy reading!

  5. Mmm lemon squares sounds delicious! I hope you're reading something fun :)

  6. Lemon squares sound so good right now! Wish I lived closer! ;)

    Hope you have a great day of reading!!
