24 Hour Readathon

deweys-readathonbutton

This is my second attempt at the readathon – any excuse to have a  designated reading day! Last round I managed to read six books off my tbr list so this time I’m aiming for seven… okay, to be honest I’ll be happy to get through whatever I get through.

Like any animal settling in for their hibernation I’ve set up my nest with all the essentials: blanket (yes, the same comfy blanket that was dragged out for last time), pillow, cat, chocolate, tea (well soon), and of course BOOKS.

This is the pile I picked out, but now that I look at it, I realise that a fair few of them are ‘in between books’ that I picked out at the library this week, I’ll likely do some wondering to the bookshelf.

The pile as it stands

  • Flowers for Algenon – Daniel Keyes
  • The Colour Purple – Alice Walker
  • Avalon High Graphic Novels #1-3 – Meg Cabot and Jinky Coronado
  • The Chronicles of Avonlea – L.M. Montgomery*
  • Selected Poems – T.S. Eliot
  • Elizabethan Sonnets – Maurice Evans
  • Collected Poems – Sylvia Plath
  • The Dresden Files Graphic Novels: Welcome to the Jungle – Jim Butcher

 

 

*I know the picture has Anne of Avonlea but I picked up the wrong one and I’m too lazy to retake the photo – you’ll forgive me, yes?

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!
