Mini Challenge #1

From Darcie

Where are you reading from today? My chaise in the house or swing on the porch in Nova Scotia, Canada.

3 facts about me …
*Hmmmm... I'm feeling rather cranky at the moment. I'm being pestered. That's a fact.

*I need more coffee. The coffee in my cup is c-c-cold.

*I'm not in love with the shampoo I used today. It's smells manish.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? The pile is infinite, but for now 5 or so.

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)? To read one complete book would be nice.

Any advice for people doing this for the first time? I was a cheerleader last year not a reader. Just have fun!


  1. The manish shampoo comment cracked me up. I think I might've chortled.

  2. Good luck! I don't like the smell of my shampoo either. I had a shower this morning thinking my hair still smelled like the food I cooked last night, but it turns out it was the shampoo. I am off to the store for a different kind.

    Good luck! I am not joining in, I am working, but I am reading!

  3. LOL! Man-ish smelling shampoo is definitely not a good thing. Just make sure you don't use your husband's deoderant. :-)

  4. I hate manish shampoo - do hotels in Canada have manish smelling shampoo - all the hotels in the US seem to! It makes me wonder if the purchasing people don't think that women stay in hotels!! :) Or I guess maybe they just know women prefer their own so they bring it with them!
