It's that time again! Time for the Fall 24 Hour Readathon. I don't believe we have ever participated in the fall event because our schedule has never allowed. But the moons have aligned. My husband is out of town. We have our football game Sunday. With the exception of morning football practice, and maybe a break for a movie, the kids and I are going for it.
It is so fun to be part of these readathons. For this event, we have 341 readers and 43 cheerleaders from all over the world. You definitely feel like you are part of a huge reading machine!
So what is on the literary menu? I have found that short books are the way to go. They make me feel productive, despite the fact that I am a slow reader. So here are the options I gathered from my shelves:
Love at First Bark: How Saving a Dog Can Sometimes Help You Save Yourself - Julie Klam
The End of the Affair - Graham Greene
The Fox Inheritance - Mary E. Pearson
Duck Duck Wally - Gabe Rotter
13 Rue Therese - Elena Mauli Shapiro
Joy for Beginners - Erica Bauermeister
Now I totally realize I am not going to make a dent here. I will be lucky to read two or three, but I've got options to fit every mood.
My son has claimed his goal is to make headway in Salem's Lot by Stephen King. He is about a hundred pages in at the moment.
My daughter is going to have a John Green fest. She has at least four of his books squirreled away up there.
In order to focus on reading, I will only be Tweeting a little, and no posting on the blog. I will post the results in my Sunday Salon.
Are any of you participating as readers or cheerleaders? Hey, it's not too late. Even if you just take part in the evening (what I have done in the past) it still counts. Just head on over here to sign up!
