My Readathon Pile

It’s Readathon time again! Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is this Saturday at 8am EST. Who’ s in?

And today is my obligatory post showing you my Readathon Pile. Ta da!

  1. Purple Daze by Sherry Shahan: I thought a novel in verse would be a good way to ease into the day and get a book finished early on (always good for motivation).
  2. Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen
  3. Betsy and Joe by Maud Hart Lovelace: Still slowly making my way through Betsy-Tacy and loving every minute of it.
  4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
  5. Our Town by Thornton Wilder: Ben and I are going to read this together at some point during the day. It’s or favorite way to read plays.

I don’t expect to read all of these. It’s just the pile from which I will choose my books. I’m doing Readathon Lite again. I have a race Sunday morning that I need to be up VERY early for so I will be quitting early. I also need to run out and pick up my race packet at some point on Saturday. But I will still be around for the fun most of the day.

What are you looking forward to reading on Saturday?

    You’ve got a great stack there for the readathon! I am not going to be participating, much to my dismay, but am hoping that the next time it comes around I can.

    Please…Please…Please read Skipping a Beat this weekend and then tell me all about it. I have been wanting to read it, and I haven’t been able to fit it in. I need to read it vicariously through you šŸ™‚

    I’m back at work this weekend so no readathon for me. šŸ˜¦

    The only two of those I’ve read are Our Town and Vampire Academy. šŸ™‚ I want to read the Betsy-Tacy books sometime, though; it seems like everyone else has read them.

    You have so much restraint! My read-a-thon pile is about as big as a mountain. I’m embarrassed to put it up later today! ;p

    I’m standing right behind Jen waving my hands and saying “I agree, I agree!”. I don’t have my pile ready for viewing yet. Realistically, I might finish one or two books.

    Wow, it’s readathon time again! Your chices look great, I think it’s a good mix. Good luck tomorrow! šŸ™‚

    I’ll be very boring and study a lot and clean up a bit šŸ˜€

    Dang girl, those are some big books in that pile! I have to stay with the small fries to make myself feel like I’ve put in the effort, LOL.

      Well, two of those volumes contain multiple books. So looks are deceiving. I figure the novel in verse and the play will go quickly.

    It’s Readathon time again? šŸ™‚ I can’t wait to hear about your progress!!

    I had to post again, because I didn’t want to be associated with the Angry Purple Face. šŸ˜‰
