Read-A-Thon: Hour 1

Hour 1 was spent reading Sex Fantasies for Women by Women by Lisa Sussman. I can honestly say that I might already have to switch to something different for a little while. Reading the word "orgasm" over and over this early in the morning isn't really helping me much. heh

Dewey posted some introduction questions on her site that I will go ahead and answer.

Where are you reading from today? I have a small stack of books reserved for today which can change at any given time. As of right now I have:
Sex Fantasties for Women by Women by Lisa Sussman
A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby (recommended by my friend Josh)
The Other Woman by Jane Green
Where or When by Anita Shreve
Enticing by Lori Foster
Navy Husband by Debbie Macomber
Lost and Found by Jacqueline Sheehan
It by Stephen King

All books I have never read before but some I may have started and not gotten very far. I have plenty of bookmarks to go around and plan on reading bits and pieces from each book.

3 facts about me …
1. I love rock and roll concerts. Tool puts on a fantastic show.
2. Ticks terrify me.
3. I have a book buying addiction. Please help. hehe

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
I guess it's 8 as of right now. Although I have no plans of completing them all during this 24 hours.

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)? Well, I don't really have too many goals. I would like to stay up for the whole 24 hours and that's a big enough goal for me I guess. It would be nice to have a few comments on my blogs because it's still fairly new.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? No, this is my first time doing the Read-A-Thon. I'm having fun though!

Well now I need to update you on my reading. Phew that last hour just flew by, but time always seems to fly by when I'm reading.
