My Thoughts on Today
Not a bad way to start off the read-a-thon! I started my new nanny job today and then had a babysitting job in the evening but since the baby I watch slept a lot I was able to get a bunch of reading in! Here's hoping day 2 goes well!

Great recommendations!! I haven't heard of any of them but that's what books are meant to do-broaden horizons, right? I hope to see you around my blog

Every single one of your recs (I think) is on my to-read list either on Goodreads or Amazon or my library! This makes me chuckle. You'd be the perfect person for me to go to if you were working in a bookstore or library near me. (:

I'm not participating in the readathon, but I'm wishing you the best!
