I’ve been tagged by Word Lily to do a meme for the upcoming readathon (for information click here)
If I had 24 hours to read, be my goals would be:
To actually read the vast majority of those hours. I’m hoping to read between 6 and 10 books, I would say.
This is what I am going to have to do to get 24 hours of reading:
Well, since I’ll be at a work thing from this coming Friday until the night before the Read-athon, I’ve had to already pull out my book pile so that it is ready first thing. I’ve also told Brian that he will either have to make or bring me food for lunch and dinner, with enough leftovers than I can have some for dinner, too. I also have to make a bunch of appointments for Sunday, because I probably really should be doing wedding stuff that whole day.
If someone asked me for recommendations of “can’t put down” books for the read-a-thon, I would recommend:
I REALLY wish that it was possible for people to get copies of “The Gargoyle,” “Alive in Necropolis,” and “The 19th Wife” but unfortunately neither have been released yet. If you have ARCs of either, go for it, even though they are rather long. As far as books that are released…here are the ones I’ve reviewed thus far that I would recommend:
- Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
- Someday My Prince Will Come by Jerramy Fine
- Monique and the Mango Rains by Kris Holloway
- Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
- Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen
- The Translator by Daoud Hari
- I would also recommend “The Other Boleyn Girl” and “The Omnivore’s Dilemma.” Plus “The Little Prince” and “East of Eden.”
If you participated in the October 2007 read-a-thon:
For you, what was your favorite part of the October read-a-thon and why?
How many hours/ books/ pages were you able to read in the Read-a-thon?:
Sadly, I did not participate. I didn’t even have a book blog then.
I don’t know who else I should tag, as I’m guessing everyone participating has probably been tagged. If you haven’t, do it now!
