1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Connecticut, not too far from New York City. We started at 8:00 am.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton: I thought this would be a good pick to get me into the Halloween spirit. Also, I’ve only recently discovered this collection from one of my favorite authors.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
The fruits of #Augtober! For breakfast, I had white raspberries and flush-pink raspberries (still at the farmers market this late in the season) with fresh mint from my garden. Later I will enjoy local corn on the cob which still tastes like summer.

Also, I love reading with tea or coffee. I have a Nespresso machine, a coffee maker, and a teapot on deck to fuel me.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I am absolutely not a book snob! I am just as likely to pick up Alice Munro (woot for the Nobel!) or Anthony Trollope as I am to pick up genre virtuosos like Sophie Kinsella or Stephen King.

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 was distracted last April and snuck outdoors a lot because the read-a-thon fell on the first sunny, spring-like day after a long winter.

Now, we have had a streak of lovely weather so I feel no guilt spending the day on my couch reading.

To that extent, I may not participate in many of the challenges. I’ve had a hectic six weeks and am reading starved—so I plan to savor this read-in.
