24 Hour Read-a-Thon: Mid-Event Update

Unfortunately I have been coming down with a cold, so there has been more sleeping than usual in this particular read-a-thon. In all fairness, when I'm sick I like nothing more than to spend my time on the couch or in bed with a book. I just keep dozing off. Ah well.

 1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired? Yeah, I've been dozing off.

 2) What have you finished reading? Two books- Agatha Christie's The 4:50 from Paddington and a Nancy Drew mystery: The Bungalow Mystery.  That's definitely far short of my usual read-a-thon progress.

 3) What is your favorite read so far? I've enjoyed both.

4) What about your favorite snacks? I just went and got some strawberry ice cream :) (hey, I'm sick!)

5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!  Not yet.  I"ll probably explore more after the read-a-thon is over.

Read-a-Thon Begins!

Here I am.  It's 5am.  I don't do mornings, and I especially don't do 5am mornings, but my coffee and I are here and ready to read (at least until it's nap time).

Here's my answers to the introductory meme:

What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Washington State, USA
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
>I'm about to finish Agatha Christie's The 4:50 from Paddington, so I'm about to find out whodunnit!
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I think I'm going to go to Subway and get a sub for lunch.  I'm pretty excited about that.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I'm a figure skater in my free time.
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?
Be more willing to take naps.
