1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I’m in Portland, Maine, USA.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
This is a tough one (always!) but probably The Ables by Jeremy Scott. My brother introduced me to CinemaSins, Jeremy’s film-related YouTube channel, several years ago, and we’re both excited for this debut novel, a superhero story with a twist.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I’ve recently become enamored of using my waffle iron for everything, and was even talked into starting a tumblr for Things I Have Waffled. So, probably something starting with croissant dough – maybe a turkey and cheese pocket with spicy ranch dipping sauce. Mmmmm, getting hungry…
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I’m a queer femme living with my 17-year old brother, who has been in my custody since he was 13: he will probably interrupt my reading with a few hilarious videos during the course of Readathon, which I welcome. I have a wonderful Person in my life who will probably join me at some point today, and if I know her, she’ll show up with something delicious to eat (my money is on a bacon cheddar donut from The Holy Donut). Also present are my spoiled felines, Xander, a tuxedo boy, and Iliena, a silvery Russian Blue-y baby. They love Readathon because mom stays awake and home for most of a solid 24 hours.
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?
Only thing I’m doing differently is setting a donation amount instead of fundraising because math. I’m most looking forward to hopefully using this as a jumping off place for returning to blogging on a semi-regular basis, with a feed reader full of awesome bookish types.
Okay, time to get started on my first pick, Marvel’s Northanger Abbey, and some coffee and cantaloupe to kick off the Readathon caffeine-and-feeding frenzy. Happy reading, all!
