This first hour, let’s start with the introduction meme Darcie wrote a few read-a-thons ago. It’ll help us all get to know each other a little bit. Here are the questions she asked:
Where are you reading from today?
3 facts about me …
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
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)?
Good Morning, It is 7:05 a.m. here in Northern California and I'm all set to start reading. I know starting a big late but even though I was awake around 5:00 a.m., just couldn't pull myself out of bed and start reading. Now I'm ready. I have my tea and a good book. Just to start off this morning, 3 facts about me: Besides the fact that I love reading - I'm married to my soul mate, I'm going to be turning 50 this year and actually looking forward to it and I'm allergic to roses.
I now have 8 books in my pile to read. I started one last night so adding it to the pile.
"Mercy Street" by Mariah Stewart - 388 page (minus the 45 I read last night)
"The Titian Committee" by Iain Pears - 230 pages
"B is for Burglar" by Sue Grafton - 211 pages
"The Ghost and Mrs. McClure" by Alice Kimberly - 261 pages
"Iron Kissed" by Patricia Briggs - 287 Pages
"Zen in the Art of Writing" by Ray Bradbury - 158 pages
"The Little Prince" by Antoine De Saint Exupery - 83 pages
"The Soul Collectors" by Charles Quince - 78 pages
My goal is to read them all and I will try to update every hour or two and also check in on the other readers. Well, I'm off to read Mercy Street.
