Dewey's read-a-thon: Hour 1+ my booty

Hi everyone!!! :)

Let's get started it :) 

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I'm reading from Spain.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? all of them, but maybe the graphic novel by Lewis Trondheim because I always love what Trondheim does.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Mmm maybe chocolate.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! Recently I realised I'm very sensitive to cold, so I'm always wearing more clothes than I'm supposed to.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? This time I'm not going to eat much chunk food, since I've put on weight and I want to lose weight. Plus, I try to do some exercises, not to be always sitting down.

These are the books I want to read:

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I have already started it. I have almost finished so it's perfect for this read-a-thon, not too much too finish and also since it's non-fiction i can put it between novels. I'm enjoying it very much. I highly recommend it :)

Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale. I have also started this one and I'm more or less in the middle, but I hope *fingers crossed* that I'm going to be able to finish in this read-a-thon. I really like it although I'm sometimes a bit bored :(

Lost in a good book by James Fforde. I have already started it, but I have only finished one chapter so I'm going to read it as much as I can, but I'm sure I'm not going to be able to finish. Too many pages left :'(

The book of mistakes by Gianni Rodari. I have only read one book by this author when I was a child and I loved it because it was funny. i think this book is the same, so I think I'm going to enjoy it very much. This book is formed by short stories and poems, so it's perfect for a read-a-thon.

Witty sentences. This book is a compilation of anecdotes. One of this anecdotes is for instance  Salomon judgement. It seems to me all of them are going to be very entertaining (i really love anecdotes) and they are very short stories (just a few lines) so I think I can also alternate them with other short stories or with a novel.

Book, a meeting by Lygia Bojunga. I found this book by chance in my library and I think I'm going to love it. The author talks about books as a reader and as a writer. It's also very short. Sooo it's the perfect read.
