Read-a-Thon Hour 1

I woke up an hour earlier than I usually do on Saturdays to start reading at 8am. I started reading right away. Actually, I just got out of bed. reading in bed is the best. I'm in a good mood because I've been so excited for this AND the weather is gorgeous. I'm seeing a lot ouf outdoor reading in my future!

Here's this hour's mini-challenge:

Where are you reading from today? My house in a suburb of Pittsbugh
3 facts about me: (Ugh...questions like this...)

1. I have a huge stack of books this time around. I'm not making the same mistakes I made last year!

2. I'm reading, cheerleading and hosting a mini-challenge this time around!

3. I have three options for caffeinated beverages today, even though I'm not staying up all night :P
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? eleven
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 finish three books and make my way through the whole list of people that signed up for the readathon once by leaving a cheerleading comment on each.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Change your reading position! last time I read in the same chair for almost 8 hours. It was horrible. Once I switched to the couch, everything was ok again. A simple change of scenery can help you want to read again.
