Hour 1 Meme

Where are you reading from today?

New York City!

3 facts about me

1. I'm a librarian who doesn't work with books.
2. I have a stuffed pillbug from IKEA named Klappar Skalbagge who will be my reading partner today.
3. I like pie.

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

20. Half of them are things I've started in the past and abandoned or forgotten about. (I want my bookmarks back, basically.)

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)?

Uh, no, because I don't want to set myself up for disappointment when I fall asleep at 2 in the afternoon. :-)

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

I'm not a veteran. My advice is LOTS OF COCAINE! Just kidding, my advice is do not forget to feed the cat because it does not care that you are reading.


  1. hehe cute! Hopefully your cat is a little more forgiving than my dogs or you are in trouble :)

    Good Luck! Go Team Woodsworth! ---Happy Reading!

  2. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

  3. Good luck today. Happy Reading!
