Read a Thon October 2010

It's that time of year again, my dearies! The 24 Hour Read-a-thon is tomorrow! I'll be up bright and early, ready to hit the books at 7 a.m.!

This is my third time joining in the reading fun, and I'm even more excited than I was the last time. I've got some healthy food all set, coffee is ready to go, and my Saturday is free and clear to read to my hearts content. I do plan on running an errand tomorrow just for a little break, and to rake my side-yard for a while (the acorns this year are Out Of Control), but other than that, I'll be reading and eating. I do plan on taking at least one nap, and if I sleep more than that, that's okay too. Now, for my ridiculously large proposed book pile:

From left to top to bottom to right:

"First to Die", James Patterson
"Enthusiasm", Polly Shulman
"Carrie", Stephen King
"The Vampire Diaries, The Awakening", L.J. Smith
"Suddenly You", Lisa Kleypas
"The Shape of Water", Andrea Camilleri
"The Frozen Deep", Wilkie Collins
"My Trip Down the Pink Carpet", Leslie Jordan
"Finn Family Moomintroll", Tove Jansson
"The Girl Who Could Fly", Victoria Forester
"Hex Hall", Rachel Hawkins
"Still Life", Louise Penney
"Royal Blood", Rhys Bowen
"Whose Body?", Dorothy Sayers
"The Happiness Project", Gretchen Rubin
"The Memoirs of Cleopatra", Margaret George
"Maus" and "Maus II", Art Spiegelman
"Gothic Classics", Ann Radcliffe
"Hood", Stephen Lawhead
"The Expedition of Humphry Clinker", Tobias Smollett

Once again, I have an absolutely enormous stack to pick from, but I have no illusions of getting through all of them. I'd like to at least finish the 2 I've already started (the last 2 on the list), read a small chunk of the Cleopatra book, and maybe read 2 more from front to back. Other than that, I'm just happy to be reading for most of the day. Well, it's early to bed for me so I can face tomorrow with a full nights sleep!

See you all tomorrow morning!


  1. Wow! That's quite a pile! I loved Enthusiasm! And I'm using mine to cheer you on!
    Read, read, read!
    Then take a break, go outside to rake,
    do whatever you need,
    to read, read, read!

    Sorry for lameness!

  2. Are you kidding? Lameness is great! Thanks KB, and good luck to you today as well!
