I am starting with the book I have been reading and have only about 60 pages to go.... The Emerald Decision by Craig Thomas.
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? - The Woodlands, TX (Nr Houston) 2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I don't have a pile. I read the next book in the order I get them. 3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Whatever my wonderful wife (we do this together) has made 4) Tell us a little something about yourself! Ex-pat Englishman, Christian, chemist, read-a-holic, sports fan. An eclectic mix!!! 5) If you participated in the
last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is
your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? We have a soccer game to go tonight so that will be different and time spent from reading which doesn't usually happen!! -Richard
Tomorrow I will be taking part in my fifteenth Dewey's Read-a-Thon. A day to engage in my favourite and relaxing hobby.
As usual I will be reading in the order I have bought books....kinda. There will be a couple of changes as I will be reading a book Jenn wants me to and I got a book out of the library written by Reginald Hill, who is from my home town and that I have never read before.
My goal is to get to about 1000 pages. As we are going to a soccer game tomorrow night we will lose about four hours. Over the previous four events my average # of pages read is 1095.
Born in Hartlepool, England. Left home age 18 to go to The University of Bradford. Earned a degree in Chemistry and Chemical Technology. Moved to London to work. Married Jenn, from TX, in 1997. Moved to High Wycombe. After 1 year of marriage moved to Edna, TX. Then job moves took us the Bay Area of CA in Jan 1999, then to Raleigh, NC in Oct 2001 followed by a move back to the Houston, TX area in Jan 2011.
