Readathon: And it begins!

24 Oct

I’m kicking off my first-ever readathon! And I’m starting with the Hour 1 Challenge:

Where are you reading from today? It’ll change, but my living room, my bedroom, and probably Starbucks at some point. Oh and I’m in Upper Marlboro, MD, just outside of DC

3 facts about me …

  1. I’m Team Jacob
  2. I’ve lived all over the country and the world as a military brat.
  3. I live at home with my parents even though I’m 26, so that I can pay for grad school. First is a certificate in kiddie lit, then a master’s in publishing.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? About 20, but I could very well end up pulling books from the multiple other shelves, bookcases, nooks and crannies in this place.

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’d love to be able to read at least 8 books — the 6 that are on my school reading list and 2 others. I’m still new to book blogging so I have no goals about comments, but I’m excited that other bloggers will see my page!

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