Hmm. well she's off and building up a fine lead everyone,
Bluestalking Reader over in Chicago is approaching the first drinks station in the Booker-thon well ahead of the rest of the field. This is largely due to the fact that she literally has her finger ON the inter-library loan button and has the books breezing in from all over the Windy City, while the rest of us have to wait for things to happen in RDLT (Rural Devon Library Time)
Now don't ask me how but I have managed to put a direct feed to the Bluestalking blog (and the Hill blog) in my right-hand side bar over here >>>>>> which will keep us all posted on her Booker-thon progress as we chase her round the course.My race plan which is logged over to the left <<<<< is a measured and stately pace in the hope that I make it to the finish without blisters or chafing of any description.
I gather pacemakers Edric and Carey are waiting for me anxiously at the library this morning, but me, well I'm still stuck at the start line pulling on my new plimsolls and, despite intensive training, fully expect to hit the wall very early in the race.
