If you know me, you know I absolutely love the biannual 24 hour readathon. It is the one blogging tradition I’ve consistently adhered to since starting my blog in 2010. I have a pretty big stack of books picked out, and I’m pretty excited to get through some of these options!
As always, my goal will be to get through 10 books. (Which sounds impressive, but really isn’t since most of my picks are either juvenile or novellas!)
The physical stack:
- Tom Ass by Ann Lawrence
- The Little Broomstick by Mary Stewart
- Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink
- Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
- Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
- At Large and At Small by Anne Fadiman
- Joyland by Stephen King
- The Farthest Away Mountain by Lynn Reid Banks
- Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- Newspaper Blackout by Austin Kleon
- Pink Boots & A Machete by Mireya Mayor
- Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
- Three Schemes and a Scandal by Maya Rodale
- Terrain by Genevieve Valentine
- Meridian Six by Jaye Wells
- The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Paterson
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
My lovely apartment in Norman, Oklahoma.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Possibly The Farthest Away Mountain by Lynne Reid Banks. I’ve had it for awhile, but I’ve been saving it for the readathon!
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I actually didn’t buy anything especially for this weekend, but I do have a new coffee blend to try out.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I have a serious RAGE problem when it comes to being interrupted while I’m reading. I also have loud neighbors – so I hope they survive the day!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I’ve been doing this for awhile, so I have a system that works for me. I absolutely love being able to update my Goodreads Challenge totals at the end of the day! It’s the small things in life, y’all.
