Well, guys, my very first Readathon starts tonight at midnight! It’s called 24 in 48 and it’s where you read for 24 hours in the 48 hour weekend. No, it’s not 24 books! (wouldn’t that be the dream?) I found out about via my favorite app, Litsy, where the book community has just been fantastic. I couldn’t be happier spending this entire, super hot weekend inside with the AC reading books (:
I’ve slacked off in July due to thoughts, sickness, a new job, and shit hitting the fan, and I wish I had told you all about this earlier, but I get that not many can participate. I mean, it means not really having any plans on Saturday AND Sunday, but since I’m sick, that won’t be a problem for me. (I also originally got this weekend off for a writer’s retreat that I ended up not being able to attend, so luck was on my side.) I’ve heard about them in the past but always had to work!
Anyway, here’s my way overly ambitious stack, including my laptop since I have a manuscript I’m behind on reading. Also pictured here is Pond, since, let’s face it, she’s probably not going to leave me alone (although her brother is an even bigger problem).
Many of these are books I’ve started and haven’t finished, library books, books I’m reviewing, or books that I’m reading for different purpose. Had to include poetry, horror, short stories, a graphic novel, nonfiction, Italy, and some novels. (Not pictured: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.)
I’m so excited! I won’t be posting updates during the Readathon here, but if you have an iPhone you can find me at Litsy: WordWaller or on Twitter @WordWaller.
Anyone else participating? Or, if you wish you could, what books would you be blowing through?
