Readathon, April 2017

Written by Kirsten on April 29th, 2017

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

Portland, ME, USA
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

I didn’t really make a book stack since I was away for most of the week and basically had time to either do that or get snacks. I do have Alif the Unseen which I’ve heard great things about, and a few comics I’ve been wanting to get to for ages: Paper Girls 1&2, Bitch Planet, and March.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

They’re all pretty standard fare around here since I work from home and am more of a grazer than a meal person. But, I did whip up some pasta alfredo last night and got some shrimp for today, so that’s going to be yummy 😊
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I’m 36, a full-time employee of LibraryThing, a part-time student, and sister-mom to my 19 year old brother. I read a lot of sci-fi/fantasy and YA lit, particularly anything LGBTQIA. I’m joined today by my two spoiled cats, who are extra needy after me being gone for a few days!
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?

I’ve gotten to a point where I pretty much know how this is gonna go, and I’m happy with it. I read as much as I can, sleep at least 3-5 hours (got in half of that this morning, oops!), and enjoy getting to know some new folks on social media.

Happy reading, all!
