I’m here! I’m here! (and it’s time to read!)

Read-a-Thon bannerOf course, I’m late getting started on the Read-a-Thon today, but that’s par for the course. I expected as much when I was still trying to sleep at 4:35 this morning, so I’ve decided to just go with it. There’s plenty of daylight left here in Texas and miles to go before I sleep again! I’m all set up and ready to get started.

Reading spots are prepared…

The writing station is at the ready…

Snacks are lined up…

And my books are stacked at arm’s length…

First on the agenda (and judging by previous years, likely to be my only completed titles today) is concluding Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games trilogy. I begin with the second book, Catching Fire, at Chapter 19, the start of “Part III: The Enemy” and I will likely rush right into the concluding book of Mockingjay as soon as I read the final word of Fire. There’s a reason these books are so well-loved; they are truly compelling!

If I’m still going after completing these books, you’ll notice a few titles have returned from previous read-a-thons. I’ve not yet completed (or even begun!) these books, despite great desires to do it. Simply put, I’ve kept reading on the back burner in recent years and even when I get in the mood to read, I tend to be drawn to something different than what’s on my shelves. But I’m always hoping to get back to these titles, so here’s to a great reading effort for the remainder of this day.

I’ll post here a few more times throughout the day/night with updates on my reading progress, but please do follow me at Twitter or Facebook today. I’ll post much more frequent snippets there as I encounter interesting passages and mark time during this read-a-thon journey. And I’d love to hear from you! It’s a beautiful day to read!
