It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Mini Challenge

Hour 1

Where are you reading from today?
Living room couch. Should have thought to make a snug spot on my daughter's bed for later - that way I can stay upstairs where the computer is. Oh well, maybe walking up and down the stairs will help keep me away.

3 facts about me
1. I hate these things because I can never decide how personal to get!
2. I'm a "nite-owl" who loves the sunrise. I'm just usually seeing it before going to bed.
3. one of my emails is addicted2reading because really, it is an addiction.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I have 30 print books on my shelf. No audio. Didn't gather all the picture books. Am thinking of purchasing a couple of ebooks.

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)?
1. I hope to read at least 7, non-picture book, books.

2. I thought just waking up to my alarm at 5 a.m. would be a great goal but I wasn't able to fall asleep so I've been awake since 10 a.m. yesterday. Just making it to noon would be a miracle.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
First timer but my advice would be to go to bed early or take a nap before the time starts.

update: two chapters of The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker, mini challenge, chores, breakfast. Will be starting The Dragonling vol. 2 and crossing my fingers I didn't miss a story between this and the ones I read earlier.
