Read-A-Thon Begins

Today is the fall Dewey's Read-Thon and I am participating from a different location than normal. My husband and I are expecting twins in the next month and I am in the hospital for daily in-patient monitoring.  I will be reading and cheering as much as I can during the day around my testing fun.

Also I have a late start this morning because I stayed up late watching postseason baseball.  But I am up now and breakfast is ordered and should be here shortly.  I have a small stack of books, but I am really just looking forward to reading how everyone else is doing.

On the TBR Pile today:
         Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
          In The Woods by Tana French
          On Beauty by Zadie Smith
          The Girl Who Chased The Moon by Sarah Addison Allen

Here are my answers to the introductory questions:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
             Fairfax, VA - suburb of Washington DC
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
             It's a toss up between Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and In The Woods by Tana French
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
             I only have limited snacks in the hospital.... so all of them :)
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
             I am a librarian for a radio network and a soon to be new mother.
             I am 9 books away from my reading goal this year. 
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?
              This read-a-thon is my 4th or 5th time.  Today I am planning to spend more time cheering than reading, depending on how I feel and my schedule.
