Read-a-thon: End of Hour 1

An hour into the read-a-thon, and 92 pages into the hilariously wonderful Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. How have I not read this before?

Now that there is sun, let me share with you my reading spot:

And my delightful parking lot view:

And my ridiculous cat:

I’ve already warned him that if he falls off the balcony again (yes, again), I’m just going to laugh at him. I hope that’s enough deterrent. 🙂

And here is the Hour 1 meme from the official read-a-thon website:

Where are you reading from today? Jacksonville, FL, in general; my balcony in specific.

3 facts about me… Hmm. 1) I am a newly-minted Master of Library Science, though without a job. I am also 2) a newly-minted Floridian, having moved about two months ago from Cleveland, OH. The combination of the latter part of 1) and the whole of 2) leads to 3) that I blog about my new home at An Unlikely Southerner, where you can find many more facts about me, like that I am now terrified of bugs.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? -counts- Nine. You can see them here.

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)? Just to have fun and read!

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? Have fun! Make new friends! Get your old friends to make you a sammich!

    Love your reading spot – I'm about to head to my front porch swing for a little while. I have Angus Things on my tbr pile and need to get to it. Maybe if I need some humor today I will pull it out.

    Have a great read-a-thon!

    Love your kitty! (And your chair!)

    Remember, C.S. Lewis said, “We read to know that we are not alone,” and today all of all days, we stand together. Have a joyous and blessed time!
