Dewey 24-Hour Read-a-thon introduction

I am not sure how much reading I will get done today during the Dewey 24-Hour Read-a-Thon, but I haven't participated in a read-a-thon for a many years so will give it my best attempt in between the other things I need to get accomplished. Where I really want to be is up in Seattle at a memorial for the mother of one of my best friends from high school. She was an amazing woman and I wish I could be with Bruce and his family today.

What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I am reading at home in Santa Barbara, California, USA.

Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
My stack is really just my TBR shelf and there are so many from which to choose! I think it's the first book: The Baker's Secret, which I am reading for a review.

Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I think my pink lady apple and chocolate chip cookies. How's that for balance?!

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a social studies coach and technology coach for my school district. But, I've also been a history teacher and a high school librarian. I have one teenage daughter and a white poodle.

What is something you'll do differently in this read-a-thon from the past?
I used to feel that I had to spend ALL day reading and read as many books as possible. This time, I want to enjoy the process, read more than I usually would, and just love the books I am reading (quality over quantity).
