Dewey's #readathon Spring 2013: Starting line!

Whoop, whoop!  Dewey's readathon is up and running again!  Bright and shiny early at 7am CDT (my time).  At least, that's when I have this post set to go up because I am famous for being a Saturday morning bed slug.  I'll probably crawl out of bed long enough to start the coffee, snag a book of some sort, and crawl back into bed.

I have my snacks/meals all ready to go (last time I had to start the morning with a trip to the store due to poor planning): dried strawberries, carrots and peanut butter, monster trail mix (yum yum!), lobster cheese balls (they looked really good in the case at Target), yogurt, and lasagna I made (or, I unfroze and cooked) yesterday.  And coffee, several bags of coffee to keep the pot going.  And tea, for when I wuss out at 3am and need some sleep.

I have my reading spots all ready to go: cozy bed, downstairs couch, downstairs recliner (likely not, the cats have sort of made it theirs), and the upstairs couch and chair with ottoman.  And my blanket and comfy pillows.

I have my book stack all ready to go:

Yes, I know that is a very tall stack of books.  There is no way on Earth I can read all those.  But some of them are half-finished and some are short story/essay collections just to shake things up.  I made a conscious decision to not read DRCs/galleys that I received for review (to clarify, I got the ARC of The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom as part of a bloggiesta prize pack so it doesn't count).  And that is my nook on top of the stack; Eleanor and Park, American Gods, and Where'd You Go, Bernadette live on it.
Check back in at the beginning of Hour 2 - I'm hosting the mini-challenge!
Viva la readathon!
