OK. So, technically I’m already past ‘Hour 1’ with nary a page read, but since this is my first Read-a-thon as a reader, I’m trying to join in the community fun as well as reading some great books. Besides, I’d hate for all those wonderful cheerleaders to be bored when they call in to visit.
So, here’s my answers to the Hour 1 questions at the Read-a-thon blog:
Where are you reading from today? Newcastle, Australia.
3 facts about me …
- I’ve returned to university this year and am studying for an Arts degree majoring in a Critical and Cultural Studies subject stream.
- I don’t drink coffee, but I love tea.
- I believe that it isn’t possible to have too many books (despite the fact that my husband thinks I passed that point long ago).
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I have 11 books (including one audio book) plus my university notes.
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 definite goals. I’m just looking forward to having an excuse to ignore all my other commitments for 24 hours so that I can indulge in some reading.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? This is my first read-a-thon as a reader. Last time I was a cheerleader, which was lots of fun. So, no advice from me except have a good time and enjoy this chance to connect with the great reading community out there.
While I’m catching up with these early posts and getting myself organised, I’m listening to my audiobook choice, Nelson Mandela’s Favourite African Folktales. I’ve just listened to Alan Rickman read a story and now I’m enjoying Whoopi Goldberg. Excellent.by
