Dewey's Read-a-Thon Hour 1

I'm so excited to be doing the Read-a-Thon yet again. I've lost track of how many I have participated in. I'm thinking this is 4th or 5th! (I'll have to look back through my blogs and try to figure it out!)

The first mini-challenge is the Hour 1 meme from Darcy.

Where are you reading from today? For easy reading, I am reading from the Hank Zipzer series by Henry Winkler, the Doll People series by Ann M. Martin & Laura Godwin, and I have a handful of other books from the Juvenile section at the library. I also have my Kindle stocked up with lots of other books, a mixture of short stories, mysteries, Chunksters, etc., so I will have lots to choose from.

3 facts about me: I'm currently purchasing a new home and supposed to be moving in 3 weeks. I should be spending every spare minute packing, but can you say UGHHHHH! I HATE packing!

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Looks like about 20 to choose from.

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (ie: number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? Nah, I'm just glad to be able to carve out some time to participate. No pressure this time!

If you're a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? I should follow my own advice, but plan ahead! You should have lots of books, drinks and snacks available. Nothing worse than having Hour 1 start and realizing you forgot to stop at the store and grab some easy, quick to prepare snacks. Which is exactly what I just did!
