Fall Readathon 2013 :: Introductions

24 hour readathonI’ve already posted my 24 Hour Readathon selections, so let’s just begin, shall we? This is meant to emphasize the reading, now isn’t it? 😉

Introductory Questionnaire

  1. What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
    I’m currently without a home base, so I’ve got the special treat of reading in a new location from my past readathons. Still in North Texas, east of Fort Worth now, I’m at a retreat center with plenty of woods and lakeside locations to offer scenery change. I’m hoping I feel well enough to get outside for a bit and take advantage!
  2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
    I’ve only got a few books* on tap this time – I rarely read more than one or two titles in a readathon – but I’m most excited about The Paris Wife by Paula McClain. However, I feel like I should first read A Moveable Feast by Hemingway since it is the non-fiction story of the same time period and setting (and features the same woman, his first wife). If I don’t start with Hemingway I may never get back to reading him, so I’m going to save The Paris Wife for later in the day when I’m weary of material. We’ll see how that goes.
  3. Which snack are you most looking forward to?
    Oh! Snacks! I knew I forgot to do something! Refrigerator clean-out…
  4. Tell us a little something about yourself!
    I use a tagline that sums it up best: a single gal exploring life, faith, and love of pop culture. Pretty much says it all!
  5. If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?
    Today I plan to chronicle my day on Twitter instead of multiple blog posts. I’m hoping it will provide less distraction from the reading and I might get in more actual time with books!

    You got your Readathon going on! You can always take a break and go get some delicious snacks. I’ll be around, cheering you on, but you’re doing great!




  2. What’d you find in the fridge? I think the snacks are nearly as important as the reading! So I hope you found something tasty, or took a short break to fetch something yummy. Lotsa hours of reading yet to come: enjoy! (Cheering for you from Team Panda!)
