It’s almost 3:00 pm est and I have just walked into my house.  I received an early morning call that my Mom had fallen.  Thank God she is ok…no fractures…but as ER visits go….I have been there until now.  I did grab my book, which is habit whenever I leave the house or I feel completely naked and you never know if there is traffic, flat tire, etc etc. and have the chance to read.  Because she was ok other than being in pain and we were just hanging out waiting for x-ray, CT scans, lab work, etc. results, we were just talking, catching up on “what’s new”,  discussing current affairs, etc., I never even opened my book.  So I am getting a late start on the Mystery Read-A-Thon.  So after hitting “publish”, I will be heading over to the recliner with my book and cup of coffee and start this mini challenge.  This is my 1st mini challenge so am not sure of all the criteria so will be limping along.  I did, however, find the following questionaire on the site.  I think  there is still time for you to join too.
The link is:
Welcome & questions for the introduction post…

Now welcome, welcome, welcome! By now everyone should have Saturday, January 16 on their calendars, so it’s about time to start with a short introduction post… For this, we have come up with a few questions for you to take to your own blog to answer. Please leave a link in the comment section once you have posted your answers! If you don’t have a blog, just answer the questions in the comment section.
Now on to the questions:
1) Give us five fun-facts about you. (Things that are so trivial you wouldn’t think of them right away, but that might make others smile.)
  **I ask a lot of questions…(its a way of learning plus I need to get details to understand a situation better), which annoys my family
  **I tend to have a heavy foot when driving (I blame this trait on my Dad because he was a race car driver when he was in his twenties early thirties)
  **My “comfort food” is a 5 scoop sundae from Friendly’s (chocolate chip & forbidden chocolate ice cream with hot fudge, marshmallow and peanut butter toppings)
  **I can’t lie.
  **Am a cable news junkie
2) What is on your TBR stack for the next two days?
    Hope to finish Invisible Boy by Cornelia Read and start Original Sin by Allison Brennan
3) Do you have any specific hopes and plans for this read-a-thon?
    Since I have gotten a late start and have been up for many hours already, I hope I just don’t fall asleep while I am reading because it does relax me.  Hubby has had to take off my glasses at times when I read in bed and fall asleep.
4) Did you participate in the Mystery Read-A-Thon in the past?
    This is my 1st !!!!  Only been a book blogger for a few months but loving every minute of it.
5) If you already participated, can you give the new participants any tips on what to do and what not to do?
6) If this is your first Mystery Read-A-Thon, how do you plan to go ahead?
    After posting this, I plan on hunkering down and reading…going to try and catch up

  One last thing.  This is for all those kind, patient and experienced book bloggers, who I have met and helped me with all my computer and blogging questions, which I now consider my friends.  Yesterday another blogger left a comment and question for Aloha Friday.  To those new friends, you may want to sit down for this one….as has been stated, I am computer challenged……are you ready?  I was asked how I created something on my sidebar and asked for my help….AMAZING…I paid it forward and she know has a drop down menu on her site.
  Ok…need to kick hubby out of the recliner and start reading.  I might, though, check in to see what’s going on.
   Happy Reading…Happy Saturday !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I'm very sorry to hear about your mom but glad everything is OK !! Hope your mini-challenege goes well !! Good luck !

  2. so many things I want to say 🙂

    First of all, I am so glad that I found your blog by way of the mystery read-athon. I look forward to following your posts this year.

    Secondly, I am grateful that all is ok with your mother. I have had many ER visits with my own mom, and they can be emotionally exhausting!

    Third, I totally agree that we learn through asking questions — and I am sure all those around me become quite frustrated when I am in "learning" mode.

    I hope that Sunday is a good reading day for you.
