Introduction Meme and the End of Hour 1

3 facts about me …

-I’m having a little boy in June
– I’m a descendant of Patrick Henry (think American Revolution)
– My feet are freezing right now, and I need my husband to wake up and bring me socks so I don’t have to get up! 

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

15 books and two audiobooks (the first audiobook is a novella I’m already halfway finished with)

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 know I can’t read the whole 24 hours (pregnant, got less than 6 hours of sleep last night, and have church and a baby shower tomorrow), so I’d like to get through between 1000 and 1500 pagesl

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

Don’t feel that you have to participate in every challenge, visit every other reader now, or post updates every hour, if you try you won’t get ANYTHING read.   Come back to the computer when you need a break.

 

And my update:

I finished about 80 pages of “The Book Thief.”  Time to go get some cereal and continue reading!
