dewey-300x300What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

I am reading from (currently) sunny but windy SW London, flitting about from comfy chair to comfy chair, starting at 1pm and reading (hopefully) all the way through to lunchtime on Sunday

Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

Not sure I have one particular book I’m looking forward to, they all look fantastic otherwise I wouldn’t have chosen them 🙂

Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Ah, snacks may be a problem. I’m reading for charity, Diabetes UK to be exact, because I was diagnosed last autumn with Type 2 and I have to be careful about eating between meals. But if I’m very good I may allow myself a (tiny) piece of chocolate

Tell us a little something about yourself!

My name is Christine, I am 52, Scottish-born and bred but living in London for over 25 years, I’m a civil servant and I’ve been blogging since January 2007. I’m an erratic blogger because I work full-time in what’s often a pressured job so I take a relaxed view and only post when I’ve got something to talk about. I read almost every type of book, but not much love for chick lit and very little poetry; other than that I’m willing to give most things a go (though I do have a major soft spot for sci-fi/fantasy/horror)

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 first read-a-thon since April 2012. I don’t think I’ll be doing too much that’s different except I will be using social media especially Twitter a lot more than previously. I hope to do some visiting of other blogs but as I’m trying to raise money I feel I should probably concentrate on the reading thing!
