I wanted to start the official Readathon off the right way with the Hour 1 Meme:
Where are you reading from today?
I think I will probably be home most of the day. I will likely read from the living room, the bedroom, AND Daniel’s room at some point. I may also be reading at my inlaws’ basement for awhile if Daniel doesn’t want to take a bottle from his grandma so that she can play with him so I can read, but he can still eat
3 facts about me …
-This is my first Readathon with my baby, my fourth Readathon total
-I’m related to Patrick Henry of “Give me liberty or give me death” fame
-I can never think of good facts so I ALWAYS use the Patrick Henry thing, some of you have probably heard it before!
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I think I ended up with a pile of 21 books, there were a few last minute substitutions, so I’m not positive, but it is right around there.
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’m hoping to read at least 5 books and read at least 17 hours.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Short books, people! Don’t be afraid to switch it up either. Also, plenty of snacks.
I started the Readathon two hours early today for a variety of reasons (see my Hour -2 post for details), so I already have some progress to report.
Books Read: Confessions of a Slacker Mom by Muffy Mead-Ferro and Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi

The baby’s awake now, though, so we’ll see how much I get done between now and his first nap (hopefully soon! I have him in his jumpy chair to tire him out).
