First mini challenge has arrived.

Where are you reading from today? my house in Boise, ID; currently from my bedroom

3 facts about me … I’m currently unemployed, I can watch movies and read books at the same time, this is my second read-a-thon

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I believe 13

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 want to go over what I did last year, so that’s over 1,000 pages, more than 5 books, and read longer than 13.5 hours.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? I wouldn’t consider myself a veteran but I think it’s always a good idea to think ahead, have a large stack of short books that you know you’ll enjoy, snacks and drinks always available; and tell you close friends and family you are unavailable for the day so they don’t bug you! 🙂

Here’s my stats so far:

Title of book(s) read since last update: James and the Giant Peach
Number of books read since you started: 0
Pages read since last update: 89
Running total of pages read since you started: 89
Amount of time spent reading since last update:  60 minutes
Running total of time spent reading since you started: 60 minutes
Mini-challenges completed: 0
Other participants you’ve visited: 0
Prize you’ve won: 0

This is fun. I’m almost done with my first book, of course a childrens book and a short one but so far the first hour has been great.
