I'm ElizabethAnne and I love to read. That's probably obvious since I titled my blog ElizabethAnne Reads. But I just want to make sure we're clear from the beginning. This blog is about books, the written word, the beauty of the ink on the page and the way it can spark your imagination. And what better way to start a new blog by participating in a 24 hour readathon. Next Saturday, April 23rd, I will be participating in my second readathon. (Here's the link if you are interested in joining me: ) Basically the idea is that you set aside 24 hours to read as much as you possibly can and interact with other book addicts around the world via twitter, facebook, goodreads, and various blogs. It's pretty much the best kind of party ever. So I'll be here, kicking off this blog in style, posting updates throughout the day, letting you know what I'm reading, snacking on, thinking, and all kinds of other fun tidbits! I hope you'll be here to join me in between your own reading sessions. 

Just to whet your curiosity, here's a picture of the books I have chosen for the readathon. No, I won't be reading all of them, but these are the ones I will be selecting from.
