I’m participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon 2012. It’s taking place tomorrow April 21, 2012 and I start reading at 8 am. Want to know more about it? Check it out here. My reading list so far includes:
Sacré Bleu by Christopher Moore (I hope to finish this one.)
- The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice
- Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
- Lifeboat No. 8 by Elizabeth Kate
- Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
Turned At Dusk by C.C. Hunter
- Short Friday by Isaac Bashevis Singer
And I have several additional books to choose from. In this event, variety is key. I’m going for a mix of short stories, young adult books, and quick reads in addition to the novels. The only book I hope to finish is Sacré Bleu. I also have a variety of snacks on hand and I plan on having a pizza delivered. Also, I will get up from the couch frequently for short breaks and I have the laser light primed for the cats so I can play laser tag with them during my breaks. How will you manage this read-a-thon?
Hour 1: Finished Taken at Dusk. Getting a snack.
Hour 3: Into Good Omens kitten asleep on my lap.
Hour 4: Switching to Short Friday for at least one short story.
Hour 6.5: Read two short stories in Short Friday, ate lunch, patted the cats. Now back to Sacre Bleu.
Hour: 8.5: Cruising along on Sacre Bleu by Christopher Moore. Going to order pizza or something.
Hour 11: Wow! I’m really into Sacre Bleu now. It really got rolling. And it is now raining heavily.
Hour 15.5: I did it! I finished Sacre Bleu by Christopher Moore.
BookJourney has pointed out that I do not have a link to one of my causes which is 4Paws Rescue Team. Here is a pretty graphic and link. (The other is a private library.)
