Readathon: Hour 1

Pages read: 50
Blogs visited: 3

I'm trying to read 101 books this year. When My Name Was Keoko, which I started last hour, is my 86th book. If I can read everything in my Readathon pile during the next 24 hours, I'll make my goal and the rest of the year will be a cakewalk. Umm, cake...why didn't I put that in my snack pile?

Linda Sue Park is such a good writer. I'm so lucky to be reading her books while I'm living in Korea. I credit her with getting me interested in children's literature again. Maybe someday, she'll visit Korea and I'll get to meet her and tell her how much I enjoy her work.

I love your new subtitle to your Header.

I've added about half of the books you say you are going to read to my wishlist...
