Read-a-Thon Post 2

I’m further behind than I thought I’d be at this point—I’m only on my third book! Touching From A Distance: Ian Curtis and Joy Division by Deborah Curtis is sure to be a fairly quick read, which I find typical of most music biographies.

I took a pretty long break this afternoon to run errands and go to a late lunch. That sucked up three hours worth of reading time but oh well. Things had to be done! I’m back to the books now, armed with a delicious chocolate bar and a pumpkin pie tart for later. Mmmm . . .

There’s still quite a lot of time left and I think I can definitely get through all six books.

I haven’t even gotten the chance to really check in with other folks to see how they’re progressing. Later, I guess.

The Introduction Meme

Heck, I’ll do this intro meme real fast. Then I’ll get back to reading.

Where are you reading from today?

My house. Currently I’m on the couch with one of the cats, Sydney. I’ll probably move around the house a bit to avoid getting all cramped up and shit.

3 facts about me …

I’m left-handed.
I cannot whistle to save my life.
I have never owned a dog (but really want one!)

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

Six for now but I’ve got plenty more on my bookshelf that I haven’t read. There’s a chance I might switch things up a bit.

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, not particularly. This is my first read-a-thon so I’m just excited to be doing it.

I didn’t answer the last question because it didn’t apply to me. But, Yay! For reading!

Read-a-Thon Post 1

Well, I got off to a little bit of a late start with my reading (about 45 minutes or so) since I was out later than I expected last night.

I decided to start my day with a library book: The End of the Alphabet by C S Richardson. It’s a short one, only 119 pages, and I’m on page 47 right now.

I just sent D off to Rocket Cat for coffee and bagels. Need brain fuel. Now.

I’m going to try to take notes here and there so I don’t have to keep popping back online too often. I’ll probably make a few detailed posts later in the day but for now . . . back to reading!
