INTRODUCTION MEME
Where are you reading from today?

3. One of my favorite movies is When Harry Met Sally

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
11, but I hope to read 4-5

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)?
4-5 books, 1000 pages, 16 hours reading, and loads of fun

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Get into a routine. Comment a lot to cheer others on. But most importantly HAVE FUN!!!

  5. Great job so far! I'm taking a bit of a break. The Girl and I just finished Coraline. Granted, we'd started it a while ago, but still. It's one down. I know you can meet your goals!
