Hour 3 Check In

I'm just taking a break for waffles. I'm lucky that my husband makes waffles every weekend. So at least one meal is taken care of for the Read-a-thon.

How are you all doing? I'm close to finished Prisoner of Dieppe which is a quick and interesting read about a young man's experience in World War II.

A couple of other things:

Andi's Mini-Challenge Hour 3.
A six word celebration of the Read-a-thon. I'm not very good at this but here's mine:

Today we read like a mother!

Hour 1 Challenge Questions:

Where are you reading from today? Specifically various couches in my house. Generally, Nova Scotia, Canada/

3 facts about me … Oh man, never good at the facts... 1. I love waffles. 2. I love fuzzy socks. 3. I love coffee. (Sounds like a elementary school project! I'm not up for deep thoughts.)

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I have 5 books and 2 audiobooks lined up.

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 read as much as I can. When things get tough, visit blogs and Twitter.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? Pick short books, take breaks, occasionally talk to humans.


  1. I love special readathon breakfasts! Jason made us breakfast tacos this morning, mmm...

    Hope you're enjoying the Readathon!

  13. waffles, coffee and books...sweet!

  14. A thought to mull over: “The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.” -- John Greenleaf Whittier

    Enjoy your reading!
