I’ve officially signed up for my first read-a-thon! I’ve been interested in joining one in the past, and this time Michelle inspired me and I decided to participate too. We’ll join 238 other readers (at press time) in a 24 hour reading & blogging marathon on October 24.
Here are the books I’ll be choosing from:*
Fire by Kristin Cashore
The Wild Things by Dave Eggers
The Mating Season by P. G. Wodehouse
Pilgrims by Garrison Keillor
For Grace Received by Valeria Parrella
A Spy on the Bus by Margean Gladysz
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
*Subject to change, like all reading lists I create for myself.
I loved Michelle’s idea to donate money to a charity for each book finished. I’ve decided to do the same. I will donate $10 for each book I finish and $3 for each book-related blog post to 826 NYC.
If you’d like to join us for the Read-a-Thon – you can sign up here.
