Here’s a fun little meme for the first little mini-challenge, prize giveaway thingie:

Where are you reading from today? From my home. I’ll be in my bed, on the sofa, and in my favorite reading spot outside! Though it’s actually a little cold today!

3 facts about me … I hate being up this early, but love reading, so I’ll manage. I have a strong addiction to coffee, which also works for this read-a-thon, ummm, I can’t function without a shower in the morning and I actually got one!

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 8 books! Probably won’t come close to reading them all though.

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 main goal is to read 1000 pages so I can donate $100 at .10 per page to NaNoWriMos young writers program. Aside from that, I just want to have fun.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Not a vet!
