Read-A-Thon Starting Post: Why else would I be up this early on a Saturday??

It's a good thing that this is not a vlog, because it would not be pretty. Probably there would be people taking up pitchforks to chase after me and stuff. As I write this, I'm going for the "Why yes I WAS electrocuted as I slept last night" look. And that's just my hair.

Anyway, once I get my eyes fully open, I'll be getting started... I decided to start with the shortest, and arguably the easiest book of the stack for my hobble off the starting blocks. I think my leg's asleep.

I'm starting with "The Ordinary Princess" by M.M. Kaye. After that, I was thinking the Zan-Gah books... We'll see about that after coffee... maybe. 


  1. I was looking quite Bride of Frankenstein-ish when I woke up.

    Maybe next time I should host a mini-challenge for people to post pictures of their bedhead. :-D

  2. I am loving that picture. HA.

    So, M.M. Kaye is awesome and I'm a big nerdy fan of hers, but all the books I own by her are BAH-RI-CSAH. (like how I emphasized that one? Much thought went into that.)

    Anyway...hope you like it.

    Good luck and happy reading! :D

  3. I can chant
    I can cheer
    get your reading into gear!

    Hope you are now in the groove!

  4. I love The Ordinary Princess! Sigh... Such a good book! :)

  5. I'm definitely not all that awake yet, either, even though I've been "up" and reading for almost 4 hours at this point.

    *shakes her pom-poms*

    Don't worry about your bedhead - nobody cares! :-)

  6. Those are some awesome cheers... Thanks all! :D

  7. Readathon tip #418:
    Drink lots of water! Yes, it has side effects, but that just helps with…

    Readathon tip #27:
    Go for walks.

  8. Wow, I love to hear how you're getting started! This will be great! Keep it up! Here's something to keep you going:

    The world may be full of fourth-rate writers
    but it's also full of fourth-rate readers.

  9. Most appropriate cartoon ever. You can do it though! We're cheering you on!

  11. Hour 9-10

    Twist and shout your spirit knocks me out!

    Looks like you're hangin in there. Hope you are having fun!

  12. Let books be your dining table,
    And you shall be full of delights
    Let them be your mattress
    And you shall sleep restful nights.

  13. I love it!! That comic is too funny.
