I’m awake! It wasn’t quite the full restful night I hoped for — the weather radio blared around 5 and the storm it warned about thundered through a little while later. But the rest will do for a day of reading.
The first hour post is up at Dewey’s Read-a-Thon and there are questions to answer! I wasn’t expecting a test this early! Here goes:
1)Where are you reading from today?
Kirkwood, Missouri, USA
2)Three random facts about me…
a) I’m a librarian, but not currently working in a library
b) I always have sprouts growing on my kitchen counter
c) My sofa is purple
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I didn’t count. But there’s a photo on yesterday’s post: Dewey’s Read-a-Thon Books.
4)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)?
Since this is my first time, my goal is just to figure out what’s going on!
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
I’m looking forward to the answers to this one!
In the next little bit, I will have breakfast (while reading), drive to the Farmers Market to walk with a friend (no reading), and return to read some more. I’ll update in about three hours.
What I’m reading: Sisters Against Slavery: A Story about Sarah and Angelina Grimke by Stephanie Sammartino McPherson. A children’s chapter book biography of two people who apparently should have a stronger place in the story of our country than they do — I only heard of them a few days ago.
