Hour 1 Update

Where are you reading from today? A little bit of everything, June Bug; Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea; I Feel Bad About My Neck; Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death; The Tapestry; How Starbucks Saved My Life; Born Standing Up; G'Day to Die; Aunt Dimity and the Duke.

3 facts about me … 1.) I am off to a horrible start with the readathon. Way too many DISTRACTIONS! People in this house are not being helpful! LOL
2.) I just adopted 3 Lovebirds last night and am listening to them sing this morning. Very pretty.
3.) I love pizza.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? About 10 with another pile of alternatives. LOL

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)? Books I'm hoping to finish one or two, but I plan to read a mishmash throughout the day so I am going to be concentrating more on number of pages. Last year I did 410, this year I am hoping for 500.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Definitely take a break when you start feeling icky! And good luck to everyone.
