I've decided (at the very last minute) to jump in on today's 24-hour Read-a-thon.
I figure it'll give me a good excuse to get some of my Cybils reading done. It has nothing to do with just, you know, wanting to read all day or anything. I swear.
Anyway, onward! I shall begin at 9AM, which, according to my computer, is in seven minutes, and periodically, I'll post reading responses and whatnot.
So here I am, next to the wood stove with a cup of tea and a pile of books. According to my husband the weather fanatic, we might actually get snow today, which would make for the coziest day EVER. (As long as, you know, I stay inside.)
[ETA: Rather than writing lots of separate posts, I'm going to compile all of the read-a-thon activities here.]
Hours reading: 5.5
Hours writing/socializing: 4
Due to my inability to remain undistracted by my husband (who, it must be said, put forth an AMAZING effort), those are my final, completely pathetic, stats. I'd like to say I'll do better next time, but unless he'll be away for the weekend, I'm not making any promises.

Sarah has two (new to her) very beautiful cats. Who may or may not be aliens. Also, she herself is lovely in real life.
The title of Ash's blog -- English Major's Junk Food -- made me laugh out loud.
BrownGirl BookSpeak is new to me, but I'll be keeping an eye on her from now on -- her writing voice is understatedly hilarious.
I've always loved the header over at Biblio File, but I've never mentioned it. So here I am, mentioning it.
Sasha has books lingering on her Currently Reading list, and she's actually going to DO something about it! I am inspired.
