It’s almost Read-a-Thon time …

I’m ready for Dewey’s Read-a-Thon on the book front!  There are just four hours to go.  Here’s what I have waiting:

Read-a-Thon book pileI’m going to start off with finishing How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff.  I also want to use this exclusive reading time to make real headway into Germinal by Emile Zola, which I’m reading and enjoying for the Classics Circuit but finding it hard to take after work and things.  If I read fifty pages of it in between books, I hope to get to around the middle or something.  I wouldn’t try and read it in one go unless it really picks up!

Also, On the Edge is on top for a reason.  I’ve been saving it – I know urban fantasy is great for the Read-a-Thon, so that one will be probably be second.  After that, who knows??  I think I have a good mix though, of YA, fantasy, memoirs, and romance.  Nothing too serious or strenuous except for Germinal!

I think I’ll be posting every three hours or so.  I am probably not going to try and make it all night but we’ll see how I do.

Oh, and I’m sadly lacking on the snack front, but we do have leftover lasagna and some cookies, so I probably won’t starve!  I’m just going to envy all of you with delicious food throughout the day.

Good luck everyone!

(If you’re not reading, I hope you have a lovely Saturday anyway!)
