Better Late than Never?

I'm bravely jumping into Dewey's Readathon - I don't have tons of reading time today, but am inspired to jump in for the little time I have.

An introduction:

Where are you reading from today? Home - where I have a girl with a muscle sprain/strain/pull who needs to be babied.

3 facts about me …
1. My 20th high school reunion is coming up.
2. I don't know how to send a text message.
3. I love chocolate.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Um, don't really have a stack but have hundreds to choose from.

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)? How about 3 hours of reading?

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

And she's off....

Oh, so sorry to hear about your little one's muscle pull/strain. Not fun. Liked your 3 Things list. I just learned how to send a text a couple weeks ago, so you're not alone with that!

Hi Tara. That's cool that you joined in for even just a little time. I'm cheering people on today because I have a huge family gathering later, but I'm glad I am so that I can stop by to see how people are doing! Good luck, and it's great meeting a fellow book blogger! Have a great time. :)

Its great that you could join in, even if only for a little while!

Sending text messages is over-rated. I shut that capacity off on my phone cause it got to be annoying to me!

Best of luck! What part of MN are you from? I'm in Woodbury, so the suburbs of the cities. The weather is awesome finally!

I'm only participating as a cheerleader because I don't have time to read for the whole day either -- I'm glad you decided to join!

I just saw your post with the Newsweek article on reading; it looks very interesting and I'm going to read it later this afternoon. Thanks!

Good luck with the Read-a-Thon!
