I'm busy selecting my pile of books for this weekend's 24 Hour Readathon! Here's what it looks like so far:
I'm excited to be participating this year; every single other Readathon weekend since the beginning I've been working. So I'm making big plans...my list is more of a huge pile of potentiality at this point. I like to have choice, and although I could probably read for the entire Siege of Leningrad with just the books in my house, I've brought home some from the library as well.
I have a pile of six YA novels that I've been meaning to read for a while now, for those hours when I need something a little lighter. I also have a handful of mystery novels for the same reason.
I have some of my favourite authors ready for novel reading. So much to choose from! I'm hoping to read a few of the books I've earmarked for various challenges as well.
For the morning hours when my brain is really active I have some non-fiction lined up: on the pile is Stuart Kaufmann's Reinventing the Sacred and Phantom Limb, essays by Teresa Kishkan.
And then I have my comfort pile of rereads if that is what I am in the mood for. Anne of Green Gables, Watership Down, Sheri Tepper's After Long Silence, and a great vintage read that I think would make a fabulous movie, Robert W. Chambers' The Slayer of Souls all make up this pile.
Somehow I think my eyes are bigger than my stomach in this weekend buffet of reading!
