I'm so excited for the readathon that I dreamed about telling someone how much I love books (and Jessica Darling to be specific).
1)Where are you reading from today? Fredericksburg, VA! (I totally read this question wrong the first time... it was because of lack of coffee. See random fact number 2).
2)Three random facts about me…
1-Jason Isaacs is my favorite Harry Potter actor. Second favorite is Alan Rickman. But Jason Isaacs is freaking amazing. He made the whole movies for me (and I am devout about Harry Potter).
2-If I was a car, my oil would be caffeine. I don't need it to run, just to run well.
3-I'm staying with my parents who have a really nice house. But I miss being on the road and living out of a car/tent. Probably as much as I miss England. Which is a lot.
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I'm currently reading The Passage, aka The Longest Book Ever Written, so I will NOT be reading that for the readathon. Instead I plan to hit: XVI, Shut Out, The Name of the Star, Trouble Twisters, The Lost Hero, and Juliet Immortal. Oh, and Scott Pilgrim five and six, too. We'll see what I actually get to. Eight that I mentioned above, but probably total in the pile, maybe 20. And that's just the pile directly next to my bed and only counting my Kindle as one!
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)?
I would like to read 4-5 books today (including the easy to read graphic novels). I've never been a fast reader and a lot of the fun of the readathon is blogging and commenting. :)
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
If you don't have coffee/tea/redbull already, make someone go get it for you. And save it for the end of the night. Also, don't be a stranger. Visit lots of people's blogs and make new friends!
Hour One is my favorite. It's nothing but optimism.
