Progress Report: About 130 pages into Constable & Toop and just finally starting to wake up after being up for 3 hours. It's going to be a loooong day and I see some naps in my future :p It'll get better now though now that other people are up too! And now for the introductory meme!
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Mandeville, Louisiana in my cozy little apartment :)
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Oooh...that's a toughy. Probably the one I'm reading now, Constable & Toop as I went ALL OVER THE PLACE yesterday hunting it down and finally found it at one of my library branches. Seriously, that was a hard book to find.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Velveeta and rotel dip. Hands down.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I've been doing the readathons since the beginning, I've been blogging here since January 2007 and I've made it tradition now to take the week before the readathon off of work :) That way, not only do I have the readathon to look forward to twice a year, but two weeks of vacation a year too!
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?
Apparently get a lot less sleep :/ But that wasn't intentional. I think I'll be much more care free with this readathon. Blog when I want, nap when I want. Just have a good, relaxing time. I normally focus so much on numbers and I'll still do that but I won't be crushed if I don't hit my 1000 page mark that I always shoot for :p And I'm not going to fight sleep if I need it!
