Hours 1-6

And we're off!

I'm starting at page 181 of Trunk Music by Michael Connelly, as it's my current book in progress.

7:12 - Finished Trunk Music - 246 pages

Hour 1 - Questions:

1)Where are you reading from today? My home in Vancouver, BC. Mostly, the couch...
2)Three random facts about me… I'm left-handed, I play field hockey, and I love to read :)
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I have six in a pile, but will probably delve into the bookshelves for additions or substitutes.
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)? My goal is to read and blog for at least 20 hours and to read at least 1900 pages.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? This is only my second time, so I wouldn't call myself a veteran, but my suggestion is to stay comfortable and keep it fun!

Hour 2 - Mini-Challenge:

Pinned on the map

Hour 5 - Oldies but Goodies Mini-Challenge
The classic book that has always meant the most to me is The Great Gatsby, as one might tell from the title of my blog :)

I'm about two-thirds of the way through Solar by Ian McEwan, which brings my page count to just under 470.

It's been just under six hours and I've now finished Solar.

Page count - 576
Hours read - approximately 5.5

Next up, I think I'll celebrate the Masters weekend with Somewhere in Ireland a Village is Missing an Idiot by David Feherty.
