Let's Get Ready to Rumble!!!!!! (I mean, read...)

Well, it's time! Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-thon starts now. My friends (hi, guys) think I'm a little crazy (ok, more than a little), but I'm really looking forward to it. I love reading, and I love exploring new blogs and meeting other bloggers, so this is going to be a good time.

I'm starting off with Chuck Palahniuk's new book, Snuff. I love his writing, although my favorites (Haunted and Rant) have received quite a bit of critisism (especially Haunted, which I think is much more fully realized than most people think).

And for the rest of the day? Well, my To-Be-Read pile has always been large, but my friends have been plying me with books in preparation for this, so I have more on hand than I can handle. Popular literature, graphic novels, chick lit, food writing, fantasy, sci-fi, YA, and whatever else falls on my plate.

And since my first blog is about food, I had to cook up some exciting stuff to have on hand. Most notably, I made some tasty strawberry lemon bars for that much-needed sugar high, and I've also got lots of iced tea and awesome iced coffee on hand. Oh, and a yummy, fresh pasta salad and chocolate.

All right, enough typing. Time to read...
