Dewey Read-a-Thon Intro Post

Good morning, fellow readers! This is my very first read-a-thon, and I'm really excited to be doing this! I decided to track my books read in 2013, and I am ashamed and kind of boggled by how few books it is. Reading has always been my favorite pastime, but I barely have time for it anymore since returning to work (and also juggling 3 kids and a farm). I've made it a priority for today, and I hope to really expand that list!

I'm starting about an hour late, unless you count reading emails & Dear Abby during my coffee time. It's reading, so that counts, right?

I will be reading for as many of the 24 hrs as I can last. My planning/book list post is here, but I'm not going to stick with it if the flow pulls me elsewhere.

I plan to check in/post updates throughout the day, though I will be gone for a chunk of the afternoon to go celebrate my friend's book party. I think that counts as reading goodness though. I may have to do some shopping while I'm in town, but I will rush!

I hope to check in with other people's blogs throughout the day, so feel free to comment and leave me a link if you stop by. Happy reading!


First break! I'm only just now checking in with the site.

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

SE Missouri, USA

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

The Walking Dead Vol. 17 - I've been meaning to read this for months.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Not sure. Husband is officially in charge of food today! Wish I'd made homemade salsa ahead of time, but oh well. Maybe next time.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

See above. Also, I am a spec fic writer and working on getting published myself. I'll also be doing NaNoWriMo next month. Screenname there is Ahavah as well.

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?

Revelling in reading with few interruptions! I'm also really looking forward to connecting with others who are doing this.

Re: happy first read-a-thon to you!
Thanks so much! I'm so glad to meet another read-a-thon-er! Unfortunately, I was out of the house for most of the afternoon. I fear I may have missed a lot of the just-starting enthusiasm, but I'm going to take a quick break to update & check in with others - and then I'm in it for the night!
