So today, I'm hoping to spend more time reading than I usually do. I still have a few phone calls to make today, crib-shopping to do, and "support" the husband with some of his more man-tasks. Still, I'm totally thrilled to be doing this. I know once the baby comes, reading is going to be a luxury, at least for a while. And I want to milk it while I can. There's no better time to go into a rut than when you actually cannot read. I probably also won't take part in any of the challenges, although I'd love to (I had so much fun with them a few years ago) but I'm hoping today will be more about reading, blogging, and visiting other participants.
Here's the stack I hope to dip in and out of. I didn't exactly plan my reading this time so I just picked whichever books on my shelves pricked my fancy. I'm hoping my reading mood will more dictate my reading choices through the day. I'm just under 100 pages from finishing The Magicians and am halfway through From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess.
I will be mostly tweeting or tumbling about my readathon progress, and will do a full-wrap up post here tomorrow once I am done.
What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
From Virginia, where it's rainy, dreary, and gloomy today. So that makes for a perfect reading day!
Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Have to say I cannot wait to read The Walking Dead Vols 21 and 22. Now that season five is over, it's time to catch up with the books.
Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Since I'm pregnant - anything sweet! Yes, not healthy at all, but we know who to blame for that.
Tell us a little something about yourself!
I've been blogging for more than five years (!) - that five year mark snuck up on me during last Christmas. I mostly read literary fiction and listen to nonfiction. I love graphic books and can never seem to get enough of them.
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 know I have participated thrice in the past but my plan is the same as before - read more, spend less time on the internet (or the phone).
