Dewey's 24 Hour #Readathon Progress and Update

readrat 
 Hour 1
Hi and Happy Saturday!!  It is time to start the Dewey's Readathon!  It has just begun, I have just started me a mini pot of tea while my husband is still snoozing 10 feet away.  Going to be a bit slow getting going on this readathon.  Why?  Because I am not awake (it is only 5 am and anyone who knows me knows that I am not a morning person.  I normally do not start to stir in bed for another 4 hours!  Yet here I am, in a hotel room in Morro Bay, CA (it is also Kite Festival Weekend!!!!), curled up in my robe and some slippers, waiting on my caffeine.  
So, here are my stacks of potentials for this readathon.  Yes, I am well aware there is no way I can possibly get to all of this, but being as I ma stuck with whatever I took with me, and I am an extreme mood reader, I grabbed a variety.  Several of these are actually already in progress.
I will try to update this post every couple hours  or so but I might miss some.  In fact, I will be gone for a few hours this evening for a dinner party (all you can eat ribs!). So let the reading commence!  Although since I'll be starting in bed, on my kindle, I might just pass back out lol.


Start time: 5AM


1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? California, USA
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Ready Player One (if I gt to it but IO have a few others planned first)
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I am in a hotel so my snack options are very limited but probably my red vines.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! See the first paragraph. :)
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? Probably take more mini naps, one of the in the next few hours ( I am running on less than 4 hrs sleep and less than 3 from the night before so I am actually starting this quite exhausted.
