Dewey's 24 Hour #readathon - Yeah, I'm just starting

I'm late! I overslept this morning...damn. I had planned to get up earlier, do the intro meme, and read a bit before I go out today to take my sons to see "The Jungle Book." Oh well. It is what it is.

I had to alter my original plans, as I didn't finish one of my books for Spring into Horror. So, these are the two I'm hoping to finish. I'll really only be participating for 12 hours (or a bit less) so we'll see how this goes. I need to finish The Troop first and then on to Akhenaten (which is a short book - 168 pages).

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

I am reading from Nashville, Tennessee, USA

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

The the scary so hoping this one will have me frightened tonight.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

About the snacks...a bit of a story here. I treated my boys to a junk food supper last night. We had all the dips! I made....

Yum! There is plenty left so that's my snack plan tonight. Plus, chewy sweetarts...and coffee. 

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

Mom of two teen sons and two cat daughters, avid reader, owner of a humongous home library (close to 4000 books, maybe more), writer, work at home (virtual assistant and inbound customer service/call center). I like to sing in my spare time (not often enough), usually at karaoke. 

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

I always try to stay up the entire time I participate, but have never quite made it yet. Maybe this time!



Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Good luck with the reading Michelle! I'm impressed you try to stay up :)

  2. Good luck Michelle! I hope you enjoy the Troop and have a nice afternoon of reading. I always have the best intentions of staying up all night too but I have yet to succeed.
