Let the Read-a-Thon Games begin!

Today's the day! The read-a-thon is officially underway, and this is the spot where I'll be keeping track of all the day's events, books I finish, challenges I participate in, and initial thoughts of books I finish so I can write reviews later.

But first, the welcome meme!

1)Where are you reading from today? Virginia Beach, VA
2)Three random facts about me… 1) I have two cats, 2) I am horribly addicted to Reese's peanut butter eggs, and 3) I'm looking forward to a great read-a-thon!
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I'm a mood reader so any print material I have in the house is fair game for the readathon.
4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? I'm raising money for the Virginia Beach Public Library through my reading efforts so my goal is to finish as many books as possible while still enjoying what I'm reading.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? Have fun! This is all about celebrating reading. Pace yourself, don't worry if others are reading more/less, and enjoy the day!

Book I'm currently reading: It's going to be either The Fire Rose or Heart's Blood

Books I've finished so far:
Guilt Trip: A Blanco County, Texas, Novel (Blanco County Mysteries)
Thoughts: Not my favorite Blanco County novel but still good.

 Poison: A Novel of the Renaissance
Thoughts: Delicious and detailed.  Lots of drama and the "heroine" made a great narrator.  How far will you go for a cause?

Grimspace
Thoughts: Good start to a series.  I'd definitely read the other books.

Funds raised so far: $19

And now, something just for fun:
Funny Pictures - Schrodinger's Cat
