Dewey's 24 hour Readathon
Good morning everyone! It is that time. Time for the 24 hour READATHON! I am excited to begin. 20 minutes in, and I am still doing some housekeeping. I will attempt to post throughout the day as I am reading. I am also setting aside some time to work on some blog posts for next week. Follow my progress here as well as on Twitter (@hannahmatkins). You can find more info at the official site. But, here is my Introductory Meme!
1)Where are you reading from today?
I am reading from the wonderful southern state of Tennessee.
2)Three random facts about me…
I am a nurse who works nights. So a bit sluggish this morning. :)
I absolutely love TV shows such as Bones and Criminal Minds. A bit obsessive - I've seen all the episodes!
I love to cook, especially baking bread!
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
As I have been whining to my sister, I slept all through yesterday (after three nights of work). So I missed my planning day! So I don't have a plan as of right now. Working on some housekeeping stuff, then my plan, then reading. :) Don't you love it. I'm planning on planning. :)
4)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)?
I don't have any goals yet except to have fun. A bit stressed right now, so I am focusing on the fun part before I goal it up.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Breaks! Have fun! Take naps if needed! Have fun! Join me on Twitter. It's an excellent medium for cheerleading and encouragement. and have fun!
Anyone else doing the Readathon? I will be back in a bit!
