1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? - Washington, USA

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? - The Mist by Stephan King

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? - breakfast biscuits!

4) Tell us a little something about yourself! - I can't wait to get started :)

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? - I read last October, I didn't make it all the way, I was shy by about 3 hours and regretted it when I woke up. Even though I only got a few hours zzz's last night I hope I can stay up the whole 24 hours.

"I'm stranded in a country grocery store, no electricity, in the small town of Bridgton, Maine. (The Mist) is rolling in. If I can make it out alive I'll be heading to Hogwarts next (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child)."

October 2016 My favorite book read during the RAT was Green Witch by Alice Hoffman

Green Witch (Green Angel, #2) by Alice Hoffman

So far today I am about 2/3 finished with The Mist by Stephen King and I am enjoying it!

Shelby crochet to vibrate the bus after earthquake. She doesn’t curtsy to exsanguinate any tamales on a itch or a sparse paranoia on her flaming coin purse in Queens. She lounge at the fountain pen for a fashionable hammock and a sorcerer of water.
