Time to Read!

That's right - the Readathon is upon us. But you knew that already, didn't you? I'll be posting my updates today while I read, so there will obviously be a lot more posts than usual here today. Don't panic, though, I'll be back to my usual light posting in no time! ;-)

Good luck everybody who's reading (and cheerleading) today! Hopefully I'll get to pay some of you a visit a little later on.

Wanna hear a little about me?

1)Where are you reading from today?

Bloomsburg, PA, USA

2)Three random facts about me…

- I'm interrupting my Readathon to go to a Zumbathon later today. I kind of resent it, but alas, I paid for it many moons ago, and my friends are expecting me.
- For some reason, I've been in DC during both of last year's Readathons. This year I got my DC vacation over with last weekend. It was one of those vacations that you hope you laugh about later.
- I have a dog named Rudy and a cat named Merlin. Hopefully they don't bother me too much while I'm trying to read!

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

Um, 4. One that I already started, one that's a children's book, and 2 others. That's just the immediate pile. There's plenty more where they came from. And the chances of me even attempting the full 24 hours are, well, slim and none.

4)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 just came to have fun!

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

Have fun with it. Don't fall into the "it's a competition" mindset where you feel like you have to read so many books or for so much time that you forget that, hey, you get to spend a whole day reading and hanging out with your bloggy buddies.

All right. Enough messing around! It's time to read!


  1. Enjoy - and have fun at the Zumbathon too! I love ZUmba...I should really go next week

  2. Zumbathon sounds like it could be fun. There was a Groupon yesterday that offered exercise classes and I almost bought it. I'll be curious how Zumba goes!

    Oh, and have fun read-a-thonning :)

  3. So wish I could zumbathon today as well! ;) Hope you have a fabulous day, Megan!

  4. I think the Zumbathon will be a nice break to wake up your brain. Have a great day!

  5. I wish I was going to zumbathon today! I'm thinking I will take a break later on this afternoon and go for a swim just so I am doing something different. Congrats on finishing your first book!
