Opening Event Survey
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? — St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? — All of them (see above), but I'll start with the children's books and the novel at the top of the list because it's about an older woman who is around the age of my children.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? — I never understood the emphasis on snacks. I'll eat regular meals and maybe a tangerine and a few fig bars in mid-afternoon.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself. — I'm retired, 81 years old, and have always loved words and books. Being retired means I can read whenever I like, any day, unless I have scheduled something else.
5) If you participated in the last readathon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first readathon, what are you most looking forward to? — I participated in the FIRST readathon, the one started by Dewey, and many since then. My only goal today is to read when I feel like it. I'll finish all nine of those books above before they are due back at the library.
