24 Hour Read-a-Thon Update #1

Good morning fellow Read-a-thoners!

This is my first read-a-thon and I'm really excited to be participating today.

I have been reading for the first 3.5 hours straight. I just finished up Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. Ooooh, it was SO good. I'll post a review later.

Here the introduction meme:

Where are you reading from today?
Lots of YA.

3 facts about me …
1. I hate being cold.
2. I love Junior Mints.
3. I love playing on swings with my four kids.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Way too many!

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)?
I'd like to read 5 books.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
I'm a first timer. I'm nervous, but excited too!
