24 Hour Read-a-thon
I'm taking a pretty laid back approach to the read-a-thon this time. I'm looking forward to reading, especially since I haven't been doing all that much of it the last couple weeks, but I'm not at all worried about how much, or how long exactly I spend reading. I have no specific goals. So I'm not going to keep track of the numbers (pages read, time spent reading, etc.) this time. And I plan to post just a couple of updates. I'm guessing near the halfway point, and at the end. My main purpose is to have fun!
I've also signed up for the first time as an "official" cheerleader (Go Team Metaphor!), so I will be around though, visiting blogs and on Twitter. Let me know if you're reading today, and I'll be sure to stop by to see how you're doing, and to cheer you on.
As for what I'm going to read, there's no way I'll get through all, or probably even half, of these but here are the books I have on my pile to choose from this weekend.
Beside the Sea by Véronique Olmi
Vanishing and Other Stories by Deborah Willis
If You Follow Me by Malena Watrous
Japanese Gothic Tales by Izumi Kyōka
The Following Story by Cees Nooteboom (which I'll hopefully be buddy reading with Gnoe of Graasland)
And on my ereader I'll choose from these:
The Handbook of Lightning Strike Survivors by Michele Young-Stone
Damage by Josephine Hart
The Masuda Affair by I.J. Parker
Safe from the Sea by Peter Geye
Happy read-a-thoning everyone!
