It’s 8 and I’ve Got a Date!

dreamstime_readathongI’m up (barely) and ready to read.  First up is Murder on Nob Hill by Tallman.  I’m halfway through this one and really enjoying it.  Next update when I’ve finished it.

Books finished – 0

Pages Read – 0

Coffee consumed – 1

Food eaten- Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese

Hour One Challenge

Where are you reading from today? near Cleveland, Ohio

3 facts about me … I love cream cheese and everything bagels, I’d rather stay up til 8am than get up by 8 am, I woke up many times during the night because I was excited about a whole aday of reading :)

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Lots

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)? My only goal is to read for the whole 24 hours.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? first-timer

    I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas morning :)

  4. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

    I love it! I feel bookishly blessed :)

  8. Good luck and have fun! I’ll be your cheerleader! I totally agree with up until 8:00 a.m. too and I often do exactly that. I need to change my vampire hours.
    Go Stacy, Go!! :)

    Thanks, Debbie! Nice to know there are other vamps like me prowling in the night.

  9. Good luck! I’ll be thinking of you when I go to bed at 10pm tonight. These are the 3 books we chose for our book club – The Help, Life of Pi & The Curious Incident…

    All three should be good. I’ve got Life of Pi. If only I could find the time to read it…:)
