Read-a-Thon 9AM Post

So I just settled in for the morning with the stack, and already after a half hour I finished my first book, Scott Dikkers' I Feel Like a Grown-up Now: the fifth 'Jim's Journal' collection. It was good! Now to make coffee and get on with the next book. Here's the First-Hour meme I snagged from a bunch of Saturday's participants:

Where are you reading from today? I am reading in Cambridge, MA

3 facts about me? I'm a semi-employed librarian; I have a Siberian cat; I love marshmallows.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I have 14 graphic novels for the next 11 and 1/2 hours. Some of them are smaller zine-type 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)? My goal is just to make good progress through the pile. I'll be happy if I get through about 10 or so; any more than that is a bonus.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Nope, this is my first time- but probably not my last! I'd certainly appreciate any advice though! :-)

and what a perfect day to stay in and read - cold and wet! I bet you're having a nice time with the cat, the couch, a book, and a blanket (slanket).

Enjoy, Marie!

I love that you're doing your own read-a-thon! Graphic novels are such a good choice for today.
