Ready for the Read-a-thon

It’s time for Dewey’s 24 hour Read-a-thon, and even though I’ve only just completed my preparation for it, I’m now ready to go and looking forward to it.  I’m trying to read short books because my TBR pile seriously needs cutting down, and I’ve requested too many books from the library so I need to return some before they’re due.  Here’s the pile of books I’ve put together, along with my Kindle which also has a few options for fast reads:

I also know I’m not going to stay up for 24 hours – in fact, I will probably be asleep by 10!  But I should have a few hours tomorrow to fit some more reading in before the official end.  I’m actually trying not to snack, but instead making a huge batch of baked ziti to see us through this afternoon and tomorrow.  It will be different, that’s for sure!

Are you participating in the Read-a-thon?  If you are, good luck!  If you’re not, do you have any advice for which book I should read first?
