Read-a-Thon hour 1: introduction meme

So we're off!

And because I love participating in these memes, here's the first one. Let me introduce myself for those who don't know me :)

1)Where are you reading from today?
2 places: my parents' house for the first few hours and after that my own home.
2)Three random facts about me…
-My favourite colors are blue, red and purple
-I love pumpkin soup
-One of my parents' dogs is the best footwarmer ever!
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
For now I've planned to read The Kingdom of Gods and Epic Fail, after that we'll see.
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)?
My goal is 3 books and as many hours of reading as I can possibly manage.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
I'm a bad veteran (one time veteran, but still), I don't really have tips. Or maybe one: don't read in a room where the TV's on. My parents have their TV on and are watching crime shows, majorly distracting!

Ok, so that's it for now, back to the actual reading :)


  1. Oh ya, TV is a major distraction. Good luck with the reading!

  2. I couldn't read at my parents' either - between the tv and talking there is just no way. We're all readers so they would let me read, but the tv is always on so I understand.

    Have a great reading day and I hope you meet your goals! Happy readathon!

  3. I'm getting distracted by reading other people's blogs rather than reading my books!

  4. Happy readathon! I'm having a lot of fun reading, then taking breaks to check out people's blogs :)

  5. Happy reading! I hope you are enjoying yourself.

  6. I couldn't agree more with your advice on TV. Even when my man is watching stuff that doesn't interest me, I get completely distracted.

  7. I agree with the tv! The honeyman is home today, so when I got home from work I had him move our living room couch into the spare room so that I could read and not be distracted by him watching Star Trek. It was SUCH a good idea! I can't wait to get a futon in here permanently, lol.

    Happy Reading!

  8. Haha! Ya, I couldn't read with the TV either.

    Happy readathoning Daisy! Maybe you'll enjoy some pumpkin soup, today? Paradise Bakery has really yummy recipe if you have one near you...

    Give me an R
    Give me an E
    Give me an A
    Give me a D


  9. Great plans for the Readathon! I hope you're having fun & finding time to get some reading done!

    You have 2 great books listed to read so enjoy them, Daisy!

    Have a great Readathon Day & Happy Reading!

  10. Happy Read-A-Ton!
    I would agree about the tv thing!
