So why I'm waiting for people to get their lazy non-morning people selves over here, I'm staring at the stack of library books I have that need to be returned, and I've been hit with the shtick stick.

I read unhumanly fast. It's my mutant power. Let's see how many books I can read in 24 hours. Now, this might not work well because I'm going to be faced with many distractions (people, movies, people, a birthday party, people) during this 24 hours, but it would be fun to see just how many total pages I could read in a 24 hour period.

It's 7:35 now, so I've already lost an hour and a half of reading time. So I need to get started.

My first book is one I've already started, but I won't count any pages before the page I'm on, which is 120.

Here goes:

Book Number: 1

Title: The Chick and the Dead

Author: Casey Daniels

Genre: Mysteryish

Total Pages: 323

Total Pages Read: 0

About The Book:
"Ever since the former rich girl-turned-Cleveland cemetery tour guide banged her head on a headstone, she sees dead people. Worse still, she hears them—and they won't shut up! Now it's Didi Bowman, a poodle-skirted relic from the Great Beyond, who's bending Pepper's ear, complaining that her famous author sister, Merilee, has done her wrong. Trouble is, if Pepper proves it, she'll break the hearts of millions of Merilee's fans. And if she doesn't, Didi's ghost may never go away.

Pepper needs peace and quiet (and rent money), so the cash-strapped ex-heiress agrees to take a job as Merilee's secretary and dig around the family tree. But when she unearths more than she bargained for—like an illegitimate daughter, a bunch of illicit love affairs, and a possible murder—suddenly a very poisoned pen is all set to write Pepper out of the story permanently."

Let's get to reading! I'll be back in 30 minutes!
