More Readathon Fun

Alright, so if you aren’t participating in the readathon, feel free to just hit clear all on my posts today, because there are going to be A LOT!

I totally missed the readathon intro meme, so here it is:

Where are you reading from today?
New York — Upstate
3 facts about me …
I used to play the triangle in marching band
I wear my snuggie outside all the time
I love making bird noises at my friends — just when we’re hopped up on the caffeine and sugar
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Just completed 2 — so what’s left is 1 audiobook and 10 actual books
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 want to read at least 3 more books — comment on all of the readers of the hour and read for at least 13 hours
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
USE AUDIOBOOKS — read fun books — graphic novels are your friends — eat healthy food — skip messy food — be comfortable — take time to spread love — have FUN
