Opening Meme

In an effort to help you start reading on time, we are posting the opening meme a whole hour early! This has the added advantage of helping you pass this last long hour before the event begins. I mean, it drags, doesn’t it? Or is it just me?

Opening Meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
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?

    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?

    finishing up Without Their Permission
    3.) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

    Participating in a mini challenge, maybe?
