The Read-a-thon starts in about half an hour and I am excited and rearing to go. To start things off, here is an introductory meme from Darcie.

Where are you reading from today?
At home, which is a small town in southern Sweden.

3 facts about me …
* I just came back from trip to London and am not quite caught up on sleep yet, so we’ll see how it goes.
* I have always loved reading. It used to get me teased, but that’s a long time ago now.
* I’m wearing cow-patterned pajamas with “Grumpy Cow” written on it, as I suspect that will be me by this time tomorrow. ;D

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
My stacks I just counted, and it’s twenty-four. I know there’s no way I will have time to finish all of them, but ten or so would be nice.

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 as much as I possibly can, but I won’t put numbers on it (though it would be nice to get past 1,500 pages…). I’m also going to try to blog at least once every couple of hours and keep track of everyone else.

Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
I am doing this for the first time, so no. ;D

    I’m cheering you on in you reading for the ‘thon! I’ve got a mini-challenge for hour 19. I should go look up what time that is in Sweden? It’s 6 am Sunday for me in Massachusetts… have fun!

    Nymeth: I love cows, so when I saw the pajamas, I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist buying. =P And thank you!

    Eva: I’m never an optimist, except when it comes to what I can read. ;D

    Chris: Thank you! =D

    Care: I think that’s going to be something like noon for me. I’ll be sure to check it out!
