Morning everybody! It’s nearly time. I’ve been looking forward to this an awful lot, although I have a huge headache from travelling to the other side of the country and back for a job interview yesterday so I expect my progress might be slow. That’s okay though – the idea is to read more than you would normally, which I’ll definitely achieve.
I’ll also only be taking part today as I’m driving to Sheffield tomorrow morning and so obviously want to have had enough sleep to make it safe.
I’ll be posting updates in blocks of three per post.
Before we start, here’s the introductory meme:
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I’m in West Yorkshire, England. I live near Haworth, which is the village where the Brontes lived, and also Saltaire, which is a World Heritage Site model village. Sometimes I feel quite lucky to live where I do!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Having had such a busy week, I haven’t really given much thought to what I’ll read.
I’ve challenged myself to get my TBR to below 301 books by January 31st, so I’d just like to make some progess towards that. You can see how I’m doing in the little box in the top of the right sidebar.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Nada. Nothing. Zilch. Did I mention how unwell I feel?
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Let’s see. I’m
25 and qualified
to work as a barrister last year. Right now I’m looking at charity jobs, particularly those with the values I feel strongest about.
I also have 72 copies of Pride and Prejudice!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today?
I did participate in the last one, but I read more books than I thought possible in one day and had a great time doing it!
The only thing I’ll do differently is go to bed earlier and read less tomorrow, but that can’t be helped. Safety first, kids!
30 minutes until kick-off!
