Anybody else getting excited about Dewey’s Read-a-thon this weekend? Last time, I was a cheerleader and had so much fun but I didn’t actually get a lot of reading done. This time, I’ll be gone the entire weekend due to family commitments, but I’m determined to still try to get some reading done here and there. I probably won’t be online too much, but I’ll be sneaking away as often as I can to read in a quiet corner of my in-law’s house–that’s the plan, anyway.
What will I be reading? Well, I’ve learned from past read-a-thon experiences that I need to pick shorter works that are fun and help keep my motivation level high. Potential choices so far include:
The Wanderer by Robyn Carr
Selected Stories by Katherine Mansfield
Dark Currents by Lindsay Buroker
Fast Times in Palestine by Pamela J. Olson
Paris to the Pyranees by David Downie
Austenland by Shannon Hale
Are you planning to join in the Read-a-thon? Hope to see some of you around!
