It’s coming…Dewey’s Readathon!
I participated in the readathon for the first time last spring, and I had such a good time that I’m ready to do it again, this time with the added feature of being a cheerleader (rah rah rah)! I seriously need to start working on my cheers.
Because I live in Europe, my official start time for the readathon is Saturday at 2 p.m. But, as I don’t actually intend to stay up all night (I’m too old for that, ya’ll), I’ll probably split my reading time evenly between Saturday and Sunday. Is that allowed? I’m pretending that it is.
During the last readathon I made the mistake of trying to read a long book, which was pretty dull, but having learned from that experience I’m going to try to mix things up more this time. Here’s what I’ve got lined up:
The Stranger’s Child by Alan Hollinghurst (to finish)
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan (on audio, to finish)
When It Happens to You by Molly Ringwald (short stories, so I may just dip into this one)
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas (need to read this before my book club meeting next week!)
What about you? Are you planning to join in the readathon fun?
