24 Hour Read-A-Thon Starts Now!

Before I start reading, I'm going to use the introductory questions on the Read-A-Thon website to officially start my 24 hours. Here I go:

1)Where are you reading from today?

I live in Pittsburgh, PA, USA

2)Three random facts about me…

Hmmm. 1- I have a B.S. in Neuroscience. 2- I wish I had a dog but my apartment building doesn't allow pets and my husband doesn't want one. 3- My husband won a trip for us to Germany with a great video he made for his research group. We're going in May!

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

Well, I have 9 books from the library as well as unread books on my book shelves. I will definitely not get to the majority of them, but I wanted a variety so I can pick up whatever strikes my fancy today.

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 think I'd like to finish at least one full book. I plan to finish up the Chronicles of Narnia (I only have the last book left, so I can definitely do that). I'm almost done with The Postmistress by Sarah Blake, so I will finish that this morning. I also want to get half way through Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawrence as part of a read-a-long from Then, if I have any time left, I'm still working my way through Middlemarch or I may pick a different book.

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

This is my first read-a-thon! Yay!

P.S. I love comments! Please feel free to leave me comments here or anywhere throughout my blog!
