Read-A-Thon: Ready, Set and she's off

Ready, Set and Go!

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.


  1. I've read B for Burglar. Can't wait to hear what you think.

  2. I read a lot of Grafton's books and enjoyed them! have fun today!!

  3. Doesn't that count as four things about you? ^-~

    Hope you're still enjoying Mercy Street! (Unless I missed the comment where you finished it, in which case, hope you enjoy what you're reading now!)
