I've started to compile my book list for the read-a-thon. You can tell I'm excited because I seriously think about this event for a month in advance and start planning on the little details. Laugh at me if you like, but I learned the hard way that planning is key. With read-a-thons and with life. But read-a-thons mostly.
So here's my book list. Why so many you ask? Well I learned from friend from Wall-to-Wall books that you have to have to pick more books than you know you'll read. I've learned that my brain becomes pretty finnicky around hour 23 and combing my bookshelf for more books at that point can make anybody grumpy.
I tried to do this cute little series reading thing last time around. Well it wasn't as cute as I thought and it didn't inspire me to get off of twitter and read. So I'm just going for whatever this time around.
3. 22 Brittania Road
4. Haunting Violet
1. Soulless & Changeless
2. The Sweet Scent of Blood and The Cold Kiss of Death
Mom and I are getting together for this read-a-thon. This will be the first time that we will be giving it a go together. She's shared her list as well and she is more decisive than I am. Here's Mom's reading list:
1. Mine till Midnight
2. When Strangers Marry
3. Listen to Your Heart
Sooo...any thoughts on the books we've chosen. For those of you who are participating, have you picked out your books? What are they?
If you haven't signed up for Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, you are missing out and you should sign up RIGHT now! Worried about not making it the entire 24 hours? No worries...I don't make it either. Just do what you can. It will be fun anyway.
Update: Snacks!! I know it seems like a lot, but mom and I are betting that dad and my brother join in when it comes to eating the food. We made sure there was enough for them too (just in case).
