1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? The Woodlands, Texas (just north of Houston)
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I don't really look ahead so it will be a pleasant surprise.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Ginger cookies my wife made.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! English ex-pat now living in Texas with my beautiful bride (who is also taking part in the read-a-thon)
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? This is my eighteenth read-a-thon. Probably won't do much different. However, this is the first one we've done since our dog died, so, there is going to be a bit of a hole without her here with us.
As usual I don't have a list of book, just reading them as they come. I do know that I will read the next Charlaine Harris Sookie book. My goal is to beat my average number of pages (1087) and books (3.5) from the previous read-a-thons.
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender
and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that
begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th
in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There
are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are
completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
