Random Self Imposed Read-a-thon!

Yup! Starting today at  11am CST, I will have the house to myself from 11am-3:30pm (when kidlet gets home from school.)Yesterday I had a random burst of energy that I used to clean, clean, oh yeah... and clean. So I don't have any housework stuffs to do! So I figured I'd use this time wisely instead of how I normally handle it (by napping, playing RIFT or watching TV.) I am off work tomorrow as well so my Random Self Imposed Read-a-thon will start at 11am and run until tomorrow night at 12am (midnight.)

This will be my starting post, my update post, and my finish line! I don't wanna be too ridiculous with this!

Wish me luck!

To celebrate the end of my first book in this self induced read-a-thon I give to you a musical interlude...because of the nature of the book and that I myself am a big fan of Gaming I present to you....*drum roll*
