Read-a-thon Post 1

Here's my read-a-thon Hour 1 meme post! Which is a little late as I have been dropping off a birthday present to a two year old friend of mine.

Where are you reading from today? My house! Mainly in the bedroom curled up in the warmth but I might spice things up and also read in the sitting room for a while. The sun is actually out so I might well also do some reading in the garden which is a pretty exciting optionto have in England!

3 facts about me … 1) My middle name is Siobhan. 2) I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. 3) I own far, far too many books.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Ha! I have sorted through the extensive TBR pile and whittled it down to a short list of around ten books which are all relatively short and should be quick to read. I need to finish off my current book (Halting State) before I can get started on those. I should also confess that I was looking at the shortlist and wishing I'd thought to order some of my really want to reads from my wishlist in time for this weekend. As if I have not already got enough choice!


Edited post to add in a photo of my shortlist. When arranging the books for a photo it got a bit longer...

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'm just happy to participate and am looking forward to using the excuse that I am doing a read-a-thon to spend most of this weekend.

Cavaliers are so cute! :) I'm mainly reading in my living room: my mom and I have each staked out a couch, lol.

Oh! I have The Gargoyle in my TBR pile as well. A student of mine had an ARC of it and passed it on to me about three months ago...begging me to read it. As soon as I get through a couple of other books I need to post on, then I'll get to it. I'll be interested to see if you read it today, and how you feel about it. Best of luck!!!
