Hey guys! I'm a little late, but I'm super excited to partake in my 3rd readathon! I know you all are very busy reading and snacking on tasty things so I'll keep this introduction short. 

1)Where are you reading from today? 
Southeast Michigan, USA

2)Three random facts about me…

-I have a mild obsession with nail polish. 
-I once had a fish named Ophelia and something happened to her swim bladder so she spent the last year of her life swimming upside down looking crazy
-I really want mashed potatoes right now.

3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?

I'm a little late, and once again I have failed to make my own advice and read short, easy books. As a result I only have two books that I'm definitely hoping to get though. 
-The Lady of the River - Gregory
-The Secret History - Tartt

4)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)?

Everything about today is kind of up in the air so I'm just trying for as much reading as possible!

5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?

take breaks, read short books, order take out.

I'm only participating as a cheerleader but I think ordering take out is still good advice. :) Hope it is going well!! #cheertrix

Oooh, ordering take out, that's good advice. I usually just plan to have lots of leftovers on hand. Happy readathon-ing!

I think you've got two great read-a-thon choices there: great plots written with a compelling pace. Hope you're enjoying them (and your take-out)!

Happy read-a-thon-ing to you!
