I'm at the local Starbucks inside the local Barnes & Noble. I've had one tall non-fat White Chocolate Mocha (that I had a hell of a time ordering since I was still half asleep). I also ordered a "raspberry" "scone," but it was an abomination and I owe my body some serious apologies for making it ingest even a nibble of that...thing.
Just taking a short break because I finished up The Sky is Everywhere (and ended up almost sobbing in Starbucks) and Barnes & Noble opened which means the free WiFi is now in effect (I am not an AT&T person so no free Starbucks wifi for me). I'm debating whether it's too soon to order another coffee.
Also, mini-challenge number 1 is up. As I learned in the Bloggiesta, I'm not one to shy away from a challenge! This is the traditional hour 1 read-a-thon meme
Where are you reading from today? As mentioned above, the B&N Starbucks in Forest Hills. Later I will go back to my apartment (after my husband has woken up so I can have the bed to myself - the other draw of Starbucks, aside from the coffee, was the comfy booths. We still don't have a couch in our apartment after a year and a half living there!)
3 facts about me
1) I have a very patient and understanding husband who only rolls his eyes a little bit when I tell him I'm doing something like a 24 hour readathon
2) Starbucks' White Mocha Latte is the only coffee drink I can stand, and this is the first one I've had in months
3) I always have a terrible time coming up with the requisite number of facts for these things. Um...my favorite color is black? And I am, in fact, wearing my favorite comfy black T-shirt for this readathon.
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? That library book pile I mentioned in my last post contains 28 books at this point. But I'm planning on sneaking to the library later and picking up the three or four books I have on reserve there. I'm hoping to get through 5 books today.
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)? No specific goals, just want to read!
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? This is my first time, so no advice from me yet!
