Read-A-Thon Mania!

This is my...13th Read-a-Thon?!  Is that right???  I started in the second half of 2008, and have only missed one since then - last year's spring one when I was on a Ladies' Camping Day Out type thing.  We were supposed to go again this year, but plans fell through, so here I am.  I wasn't sure if I would even be participating this week, as my heart hasn't been in ANYTHING since I lost my job last Monday, but what else do I have to do, honestly?  And it's probably good to take my mind off job hunting and figuring out how I'm going to pay my bills...for at least one day.

So, beginning meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?  Sunny South Florida, as usual!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?  Maybe Barbara Taylor Bradford's Unexpected Blessings, if I get that far.3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?  I didn't really prep a lot of snacks this time around (see:  preoccupation with not having an occupation).  But I will probably rustle up something good.4) Tell us a little something about yourself!  I'm a lawyer who is currently unemployed and looking for work.  I have family who live in Ohio, whom I miss very much right now, but I will be going to see them in about two weeks.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 probably won't blog as much as I was doing before.  Then again, maybe I will.  I have a pretty good RAT strategy worked out, but I want to be less structured about the blogging and more into the reading...

Good luck to all the readers!  This thing is so amazing and so BIG now!  I look forward to seeing what everyone else is up to.

I'm sorry to hear about your recent job loss, and I hope something comes up for you soon. I also hope that today reading can keep you distracted and cheer you up a bit. Happy reading!
