Dewey 24 Hour Read-A-thon

Wow is it a busy read-at-thon weekend!  I am doing Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-thon and Dewey which is starting in just a few minutes.  For Dewey I will be post a new update post every 4 hours.  I am not going to be around all day, I had some previous plans.

I will be having a mini challenge this afternoon so be sure to check it out!

1)Where are you reading from today? My house in Southeaastern Michigan
2)Three random facts about me… I love penguins, I have been at my current job for 10 years and I am freezing here in MI today it is a very cool morning.
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I didnt put a pile together.  Just going with the flow
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)?Going with the flow
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? Enjoy it and make sure you take some breaks and remember to eat, drink water and use the bathroom.

Mini Challenge #3

The Comforts of HomeThe Next Always Something Borrowed

The Comforts of Home is set in Texas and everything about this books says Texas to me. The hometown feel. Community coming together. Horses and Rodeo and more.

The Next Always is set in Maryland and it is all about the small town.  I love the descriptions of the the streetscapes and the small businesses in town and how everyone remembers how things used to be.

Something Borrowed is set in New York City and boy does it represent the fast moving pace and the lifestyle.  That and people going to the Hamptons and the sights and smells of the City.
