24 Hour Read-a-Thon

In a matter of minutes I will be starting my first read-a-thon. I will be posting updates throughout the day to let you know how I am doing and what I have been reading. If you want to know more about what's up go to:

Here is a little information about me:

1)Where are you reading from today?
Buena Vista, Virginia

2)Three random facts about me…

I know a plethora of random things which have no use.
I knit.
I am learning French.

3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?


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)?

To catch up on my school reading.

5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?

This is my first time doing it so sorry no advice from me.

It's 4:31 and I have only read about 2 books. I have finished one and am half-way through 2 others. I have some reading I need to catch up for in school and Women in Love isn't exactly a very fast read...oh well I will get through it. I have found myself reading one chapter from that and another from a for-fun novel. I hope that means that I will finish what I have to soon enough. I will have to take off in an hour for work but hopefully it will be a slow night and I can keep reading. 

Ok it's 2:33 in the AM and I have finished 2.5 books, and considering all of my books are crazily over 4 hundred pages I would say that I am doing awesomely...despite some loud roomies...
