Hour 1 Mini-Challenge
Where are you reading from today?
Brookline, Massachusetts. It's rainy and gross, so a perfect day to stay inside, curled up with a good book.

3 facts about me …
-I'm new to this whole book blogging thing... I'm much more comfortable writing about food, as I've been blogging on that topic for over a year.
-I'm in library school right now, focusing on archives, and in the grand scheme of things, I'd love to work in an archaeology archives some day.
-I've written two novels (both awful), and I'm looking forward to working on some other ideas I've got, because they've got to be better than what I've already done ;)

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Too many. My friends have been acting as my pushers for the past couple of weeks (I've been doing the same for them, though), so there's plenty on hand. In fact, I'm probably going to have a hard time deciding what to read next.

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 goal is to read a variety of different books - at least one popular lit, one kid/YA, one memoir, one graphic novel... vary it up.

The variety of genre thing is a great goal! Wish I'd thought of that. :) I checked out books in lots of genres, so I might just copy you. ;)

Welcome to book blogging! Hey - you're not far from me (I'm in Middleboro) It's raining up there? we have stifling hot humidity and sunshine. I'm drinking iced coffee, too...

It hasn't rained since I started, but it's been nasty and overcast.
