That's right, it's here! And with it comes hours of snacking, blogging and propping our eyes open with toothpicks through all hours of the night! This has become a tradition for my mother and I, and while we have always done this at her house in the past, tomorrow we will be RATing at my house! AND my husband will be there to cater to our every need... err... ahem... I mean, to keep us company as we read. (See the rhyme I just made) And although he would love nothing more than dropping everything to read with us for 24 hrs, he has something called responsibilities to attend to. However, he will join us here and there as he gets a chance, and yes (be jealous) he offered to make us all kinds of snack platters and refill our cups when they are empty. Yes, we are newly weds and no, I don't expect this kind of willing servitude to last forever.
So here is the pile of books that my mother and I have accumulated and will share:
The snacks we will be consuming are:
Apples & Peanut Butter
Veggies & Dip and homemade Hummus
Chips & homemade Salsa
Cheese & Crackers
Chocolate covered Espresso Beans
and of course lots and lots of COFFEE
Please hop over to my mom's blog Wall-to-Wall Books and cheer her on as well!
Can't wait to see you all! Happy Reading!!!
