Where are you reading from today?
My couch, under some cats. Possibly bed in a bit, so if I accidentally fall asleep, I do apologise.
3 facts about me …
Um. I'm 37, have 10 cats and love chocolate.
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
I'm hoping to cheer on everyone's blog at least once. Beyond that, I'm flexible.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

Just finished Under the Mountain by Maurice Gee. It's a short book _ less than 160 pages, but pacey and with a good story.

Something evil, and slimy, is waking up under the volcanoes around Auckland.
I've read it before, more than once, and it was made into a fairly iconic Kiwi series when I was a kid. The movie is now in production.
Good stuff. :)
Um ... The Hobbit next, I think.
