Dewey's Read a thon 2011: In the Beginning

In the beginning, a new blogger heard about a read a thon and immediately thought about her days at Elon University and the dance marathons she participated in and planned to benefit the Children's Miracle Network.  So with a semi open weekend, she decided to try it out this year!

Yep, that's me Kristin from Kritters Ramblings - talking in third person and sharing pics from the past! 

Charlotte and I are here, books and snacks in place with a glass of sweet tea to start us off on this morning.  I am ready to roll for a few hours, or at least until we (including the pup here) need to change to a new location for more reading fun.

Here is the format for the updates, I will be doing today.  Thanks to Jenn from Jenn's Bookshelves for the inspiration!

Currently Reading:
Pages Read:
Running total of pages read:
Running total of time spent reading:
Mini-challenges completed:

I will be starting this morning with The Sweet By and By by Sara Evans, I am starting on page 59.  

So here we go!

1)Where are you reading from today? right now, my couch but that may change in Alexandria, VA
2)Three random facts about me…  I have a dog named Charlotte; I date a cop; a crafting show will interrupt my reading!
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? only 5, may need to add more
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)? I would like to read at least 13 hours
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? a rookie here!
