The Read-a-thon Begins!

The sun's not quite up yet, but hundreds of readathoners are.  Some of us are still a bit groggy, but the coffee's ready, the books are piled high, and it's time for the introduction meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? - Green Acres near Salem, Nebraska, USA

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? -The Fate of Mercy Alban by Wendy Webb
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? - Eating healthy so it will be yogurt and fruit today.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself! - You can read the long version on the "About" tab above.  Short version:  wife, mom, grandma, reader, sewer, gardner, puzzler (crosswords, jigsaws . . . ), lover of simplicity and gracious living.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? - I don't remember how many readathon's I've participated in - at least five.  My game plan is to 
blog occasionally, join a few challenges, and focus on reading 45 minutes of each hour for fifteen hours (I'm too old for all-nighters!).

Ready . . . Set . . . Read!


  1. It sounds like you have a good plan for the day! Yogurt and fruit sound like yummy snacks to me, plus they are healthy! Enjoy the day! Happy Reading!


  2. Good luck! Have a great reading day.
