Read-a-thon is a GO for me!

I'm late to start by a bit! I wanted to go to bed early and get some good sleep in, but I stayed up with my husband stupid late eating pizza and watching Arrow on netflix! (We are late to that party!) I'm gonna update all day on this one unless it gets unwieldy. I'm combining hours 1 and 2 since I'm late. Don't expect a lot of reading to get done for those! LOL

This show has an excellent storyline....

Opening Meme:
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I've heard some good things about Sabriel by Garth Nix. I chose them all because they looked good. :)
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I have a huge bag of snickers bars so yeah..the CHOCOLATE.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I'm definitely a weirdo, but a loveable one (I hope!) and I'm really sucky at writing "about me" thingies.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
Not gonna stress out about reading a crapton of books. I'm in this to have fun!

  3. Oooo, veggie chips: they sound perfect for later-in-the-game reading. Can you pass the bowl, please? Sounds like you're having a great time and have an inviting combination of choices. Keep those pages turnin' and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! (I'm cheering for you on behalf of Team Marquez.)

  4. Hi there,
