Introduction Meme

1)Where are you reading from today?
My House in The Woodlands, TX Will be reading at various eating places in the area as well.

2)Three random facts about me…
1. I started out this year very slowly on the reading front due to a cross country move. I am happy to say over the last few months I have got back into the swing of things on the reading front.

2. I have over a 1000 books to read. Literally.

3. One of my favorite things to do is to shop for books, especially at used book stores and thrift shops. (Thus the 1000+ books.)

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

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 want to finish the two books I had started before the read-a-thon (finished one in the first hour), give One for the Money a try and have a lot of fun.

5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
I have taken part in all but the very first read-a-thon, so I a definitely a vet. The best advice I can give is to enjoy it! Don't force yourself to read more just because you think you should. If you need a break, take it. If you need a nap take that too. Enjoy the day and the read-a-thon and do it your way.


  1. OH MY GOSH!!! Are you kidding me?
    The Woodlands TX???
    My best friend lives in Spring! Her daughter lives in the Woodlands!
    We will have to talk after the read a thon is over!
    This is freakin amazing!

  2. Over 1000 books? O.o
    And I think my stack of TBR books is huge at 121 physical copies yet to be read :)
    There's a Phineas and Ferb (spelling?) marathon on right now, which for some reason is not as distracting. Might be the frequent screaming in the crime shows...
    Good luck and happy reading!
