Middle of Hour 3 & Intro Meme

deweys-readathonbuttonI didn’t do the intro meme yet!  Not so good.  Anyway, I have finished my first book, Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs, and I have read so far for 2 hours and 31 minutes.  Here’s my neat little graph:

Number of Books 1 Books Read
Pages Read 286 Hunting Ground
Time Spent Reading 2:31
Time Spent Blogging #########

Keith is on level six of the first Tomb Raider and has been playing for the same amount of time as I’ve been reading.

And for the intro meme …

Where are you reading from today?

I’m currently at home in Wolverhampton, England.

3 facts about me …

1. I have been married exactly one week today!

2. I wrote a dissertation about Anthony Woodville this summer for an MA in Medieval Studies.

3. I like baking and I wish I’d thought to bake some delicious treats for today!

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

I have fifteen left.  I know I’m not going to read them all, though.

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 like to read more than 6 books and stay up later than 3 am (a tough one for me).

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

This is only my second read-a-thon, but so far the advice others have given me has been great: read short, fun books and make sure you have food nearby.  And don’t get too distracted by the internet!

I’m off to see how everyone else is doing briefly before I continue with book 2.  I think that will actually be The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.  The words are huge, so I’m hoping to get through it very quickly.
