UPDATE # 3
Title: Prospero’s Daughter
Author: Nancy Butler
Time Started: 2:00PM
Time Finished: 11:20PM
Number of Pages: 232
Breaks?: Yes. Two of them. 3:30PM to 4:45PM (dinner); 8:00PM to 9:30PM (attempted to get on-line)
First Line: He was going to have to kill Ronald Palfry.
It’s a good thing I hadn’t planned to be on-line much this time. Thanks to the spastic nature of my internet connection, I couldn’t get back on-line since the previous update.
I’ve finished two books so far. I’ve decided not to start a third book. Instead, I’ll just pick up where I left off with Bayou Moon. I’ll see if I can read a chapter or two before turning in for the night.
And though I wasn’t on-line much, I do appreciate the cheerleaders stopping by. 🙂

UPDATE #1: Hour 1 Challenge
Where are you reading from today? The couch in the living room.
3 facts about me … I moved to Kentucky in July. I work for the US Army. I have a large collection of book covers.
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? Fifteen books
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)? At least two books, but I think I will end up reading three.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? It definitely helps if you plan ahead. Nothing major: handy snacks, easy-to-make meals or delivery.
Initial Post: This year, I’m more prepared. I’ve moved into my own place (again, yay!), so there shouldn’t be any interruptions from other people (unless they call); I’ve stocked up on snacks and beverages; I’m scheduling a pizza delivery for dinner! I’ve written out a schedule, too: when to take breaks, when to stop for meals, etc. I will post updates, as I can, in this post. My internet connection is still spazzy, so. . .it might not even be up during the time I allotted for updates.
A few of things:
- I haven’t finished Bayou Moon, but I’m putting it aside and start with a fresh book, preferably shorter.
- The most recent update will be on top, so you don’t have to scroll down to see if I’ve updated since last time, and I’ll number the update.
- My goal: Two books (not counting Bayou Moon)
- My list of potential reads can be found here.
