Opening Meme:

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

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Labor Day by Joyce Maynard and Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. I also have a book that I have been struggling to get through, Delicious and Suspicious by Riley Adams, and I am hoping maybe I can finish it finally.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? The Read-a-thon kind of snuck up on me, so I didn't pre-plan anything. Probably we will order pizza and wings, at least. That tends to be a tradition for each read-a-thon that I have done.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I am currently going through the process to have weight-loss surgery, so the pizza and wings probably isn't a good idea, but, oh well. We'll see what happens. :-)

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 have participated in almost all of the read-a-thons from the very beginning. I think I missed one in there somewhere. Last year I only made it halfway through the read-a-thon because I had to work. (I work nights!) This year I took the night off, so I am hoping that I will be able to make it at least until midnight or so!
