Where are you reading from today?
I'll be reading in my living room. It's sunny with lots of windows and natural light.
3 facts about me …
- I am a teacher librarian at a public high school in Santa Barbara
- I am nearing my one year anniversary for my blog
- I love York Peppermint Patties (they are the only dessert I'll let myself eat these days)
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Only 5, some of which are quite thin. But if I get through those, I can add more (no surprise, right?)
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've got one "required" book and 4 thin YA books to keep me busy today. My morning doesn't look good for reading, but after 1:00 I am pretty good to go!
Hummingbirds by Joshua Gaylord for the TLC tour (I am posting on Tuesday)
Shakespeare Bats Cleanup by Ron Koertge
The Tequila Worm by Viola Canales
Plastic by Sarah N. Harvey
The Eternal Smile by Gene Luen Yang and Derek Kirk Kim
Actually, I am really looking forward to some concentrated reading time since I have had virtually none since school started in late August.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
This is my third Dewey Read-a-Thon and my advice is to remember to get up and walk around. Take breaks. Change your reading position. And, don't each too much junk!
