Read-a-Thon Hours 1-6

I will probably not update every hour, but I'll try to update every 2 to 3 hours.

Hours 1-6:

Introductory Questionnaire:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
-North Carolina!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
-That's a tough one, but I think I'm going to go with The Christmas Ghost. It was a favorite of mine when I was a kid, and I'm really looking forward to reading it again after so many years.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
-I didn't actually plan out snacks this time, but my mind is already on the bean and cheese burrito I want to have for lunch (about four hours from now).
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
-I graduated from the University of North Carolina in Asheville this May with a B.A. in Literature, and I am planning on going back to school next year to get my teaching license for Special Education!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what's one thing you'll do differently today?
-Well, the fact that I'm starting this read-a-thon in the first hour is already different. Last year, I didn't begin the read-a-thon until mid-afternoon (around Hour 7).

Ugh, not off to a great start. I should have known better than to try and wake up early on a Saturday. I'm just not a morning person whatsoever. Though I managed to finish The Great Gatsby at the end of Hour 2, I was already feeling really tired, after never quite fully waking up. I decided to close my eyes for a little power  nap and ended up sleeping for six more hours! That's what I get for not sleeping well the night before, I guess  :/

Well, I should hopefully be good to go now, and maybe I'll even be able to stay up really late. I could even make it to Hour 24 and then forget the fiasco of this morning!

Pages Read: 70
Books Finished: The Great Gatsby
