  1. What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Sunny Tempe, AZ. Or at least it will be sunny eventually. We’re still a couple hours away from that. It’s fine, though. I have Halloween lights.
  2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Anthony Bourdain’s Hungry Ghosts
  3. Which snack are you most looking forward to? I have a pumpkin pie and I’m not afraid to use it!
  4. Tell us a little something about yourself! I love reading about magicians—the Houdini-kind, not the Gandalf-kind (although they’re okay too). So, if you have any magic-related recs, let me know!
  5. If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? I’m going to allow myself to give in when I can’t keep my eyes open. Naps are good!

    Thanks for the visit.
    And thanks for reminding me I was reading Moby Dick over a year ago on one of my devices. Today is a good day to track it down and move it back to the top of the ‘recent’ list so I don’t forget again!
    Also, what a great idea to include reading ones own manuscripts during the thon. Especially with NaNo on the horizon and me having not yet settled on which untried character in my storyworld I’m going to pass the POV baton to this year. I’m starting to panic.

    Nice blog! I read Moby Dick a few years ago and felt there was SO much to it, I’d need to read it again some day. Hope you have a great Readathon.
