Read-a-thon: Hour 1

Just finished hour 1.  The first mini-challenge is to answer the following meme.

Where are you reading from today?  I'm reading from apartment in the burbs of Philadelphia.

3 facts about me …
 1 - I work in a library and hope to be a librarian someday.
 2 - This is my first 24 hr read-a-thon in one day (I've done 24 hrs in a week).
 3 - I'm a vegetarian, been one for the last 9 years.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
 I have 9 potential books on my TBR pile.

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 want to participate between 16-18 hours, which I think is a reachable goal. Since I selected many short children's books, I hope to finish at least 4. 

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?  I'm a first timer. I'll let you know next year  :)


  1. I think you have achievable goals! Let us know how you're doing in a few hours!

  2. I hope that the read-a-thon has started well for you and that you are well underway with your first read

  3. The read-a-thon is such a great time! Have fun :)

  4. Thanks everyone! I'm really enjoying it! :)
