Lindsay♫SingerOfStories♫ (lindsaysingerofstories) | 12 comments A bit about me....
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from tomorrow?
North Central Illinois, USA

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Its really hard to pick ONE because I have some really good ones lined up I think, but I am definitely looking forward to finishing Zenn Diagram because I am at a critical point in the book and its way more interesting than I expected. Also I've been looking forward to reading Ready Player One for a long time and Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 because its something different from what I'm' used to.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Fruit pizza!

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
My fiance is going to go crazy tomorrow with me barely paying attention to him. He is going to be my biggest distraction...but I love him dearly. I am currently taking online classes and the more I have told myself to do my homework this week, the less I have wanted to do it! Oops! Oh well, playing catch up will be worth it because I am so psyched for this experience!!

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?
This is my third read-a-thon. It is my first time with a blog and my first time volunteering to co-moderate. Should be fun - I'm looking forward to it!

Thanks, Kathryn, I'll tell him that! I did buy him a few extra treats while I was stocking up on my own snacks for tomorrow. And a new video game too! Unfortunately he has already started in on the video game so hopefully it will get him through all of tomorrow!!! haha!


biblio • bliss (bookgirl1987) | 19 comments Welcome Lindsay! Love the enthusiasm. Happy reading and maybe that video game for your bf will hold out lol.
