#Readathon: getting ready!

Less than an hour until Readathon starts!  My local start time is 13:00.  I've got my snacks all ready - I'm going to try and eat mostly the healthy stuff but I thought I might deserve a cookie or two later! And I suppose I can share the crisps with Paul...

This is my first Readathon so as I mentioned in my TBR pile post, I'm not really sure how much reading I'll be able to get done - I might have drastically underestimated the amount of pages I can get through in 24 hours!  I'll be posting updates here every few hours, more regularly on Twitter and probably also on Goodreads as and when I finish/start a book (it all counts towards my 2016 total, after all!) so feel free to follow my progress there.

Opening survey

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
From Leeds in the north of England, UK!

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I'm really excited to read both Karen Russell short story collections I've picked out.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Probably the cookies but I'm going to really try and save them until the small hours when I need a bit of a pick-me-up!

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I'm 25 but I wouldn't describe myself as very grown up, except when I have to be.  I'm a big fan of everything Disney and I say you can never go wrong with a good boyband!

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? 
It's my first one so I'm not too sure what to expect, but mostly I'm just looking forward to being able to read all day!  I often plan to spend my weekends reading but things get in the way or I have errands that need running.  Not today!
