Read a Thon Intro Meme

Where are you reading from today? I've been reading in my recliner at home but,My husband wanted to come over to Our Little Farm which is about a Mile from our Hoouse to check on the Farm Animals. We have 2 mother Goats that where pregnant and Both has their babies in the past week. The first had 2 and the other had 3 yesterday. Our internet is cut off right now so I'm using my aunts internet while we are here. So right now My Aunts house later I'm going home.

3 Facts About me

I just found out about this Read a Thon the other day So I guess I'm a late bloomer to this.

I don't have internet acess so I'm just popping up every now and again

I'm 30 years old and have a 2 year old daughter and I know I won't get much reading done but,my Goal is to read 250 pages today give or take in October I want to be better prepared. Maybe a sitter for the day?

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I think I probably have around 20-30 books hoping to get at least 1-2 books total read. Not an astounding goal but,I'm a fairly slow reader. I like to savour the words and let it really sink in...lol

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)?
Like I said before I have a toddler so probably not much reading is getting done today so,I would love to get at least 1 book read and maybe 250-300 pages read. I would love to also get around 20 comments on my blog today.

Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

This is my first time doing this and I can already tell you is if you are married or have kids or even a signicgent other Get RID of them!!!!! Because they can be a huge distraction. I could get more reading done with out them. I would suggest rent a hotel room for the day or go somewhere where it will be just you or with some other readers because you could get more done with out all the distractions.

I tried reading last year and only got 219 pages so IT's ALL GOOD! Whatever you can do is terrific. It's really fun. Nice to meet you, Care

I'm a single Mom with two kid's who happen to be at their Dad's this weekend. I thought that was going to help me read. WRONG. I'm more distracted. What gives??

Have a great read-a-thon and I look forward to spending more time reading your blog after today is over!
