Dewey's 24 Hr Read-a-Thon ~ Kickoff

It's DEWEY time!! I am up and about already, ready to go. Hubby is off to work, so I have 9 hours on my own to read before He gets home. The Opening questions are up already, so let me go ahead and get those answered!! :)

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I am in North Carolina. We've been here 3 years in May.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Long time readers of my blog know I'm I'm not a pre-planner. I am a Fly-By-er. That being said, I DO have a rather extensive TBR pile (see below) to choose from. This is because I'm doing a GoodReads Challenge (in NRBC) which consists of spelling out words, using titles, authors and main character names. For this challenge, we've been doing colors. Our word changes at 10pm my time, so I've picked out books that cover this weeks word (Granite Gray) as well as the word that starts tonight (Pink Flamingo). See below for my rather long TBR list. I won't get to them all, of course, but I wanted a lot of options, though I still may stray. As for the question ~ I'm most looking forward to A New Hope by Robyn Carr and Forged by Erin Bowman.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Is this a trick question?! ALL of them!! I'm definitely a junk food person. I don't agree with a lot of peoples assessments of not doing ALL junk and doing something healthy. Nope. If you are used to all junk, all junk definitely doesn't bother you. No healthy crap here. :) I have Hostess Donuts for breakfast. Snacks for the day include ~ Skittles (minus the green ones, damn them for getting rid of LIME, the best Skittles flavor ever), Smores Goldfish, Brownies and Oreos. Alfredo for lunch and don't know what for dinner, something quick, probably pizza if Hubby remembers to grab it, if not than chicken strips and tater tots. :) And of course, lots and lots of Mountain Dew! :)

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
HI! I'm Karsyn, in my mid 30s, deeply in love with and married to my high school best friend. I LOVE to read, obviously, and am blessed with a ton of time to read. I also love to write LONG LONG letters to my pen pals (15+ typed pages) and play video games. I built my first gaming PC in Feb and I love it so much! My Precious Kindle is never far from my side and I recently became an audiobook fan. I read a variety of genres and really don't like to box myself in when it comes to genres. It's easier to say what I WON'T read, which is ~ chick-lit (if shopping is involved, no thank you), New Adult (OMG gag me now, I've only read one New Adult book I liked, it HAS to have tons of action or I won't read it), religious stuff, and Western. I'm all about action and suspense in my books for the most part. My most favorite book EVER is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

5) If you participated in the last RaT, what’s 1 thing you’ll do different today?
Same stuff as last time, a variety of books I've been looking forward to, and short audiobooks, rather than when I tried a long one my first time around. Not smart! :) This time I decided not to cheer, I just wasn't up for it, so I'm going to focus on reading and only post occasionally. I'm a new post each time person. I definitely don't like doing one long post.
