Read-a-Thon Hour 2 & Intro post

How I’m doing so far:

Number of Books: 1
Pages Read: 218
Time Spent Reading: 1:56

Sorry if that’s formatted a little weird, but it’s easier for me to copy from Excel!

And for the intro meme:

Where are you reading from today?

I’m in York, UK, in a teeny little dorm room since I’m an international grad student.  It’s lovely outside, but I’m immersed in a book!

3 facts about me …

  1. I’m a grad student in medieval studies but very much looking forward to the end of my program in September 2009!
  2. I’m engaged to the best person in the world.
  3. I’ve been looking forward to the Read-a-Thon ever since I couldn’t participate in the last one in October!

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

Um, maybe 10?  I would go count but my mom called.  That’s why I’m taking a break!  I don’t plan on reading them all.

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)?

I’d really like to read 4 books.  Actually I’d like to read more than that, but I’m not sure if it’s going to happen.

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

This is my first time!  If you have tips, please feel free to leave them in the comments!

I’m going to go comment and tweet for a little while!  I hope to finish in the next couple of hours Old Man’s War and move on to something else.  I don’t know what yet though!  I will let you know.
