Hey gamers and readers! It’s Erin here, early on this Saturday morning.
In just a few short minutes, Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon will begin. I have a pile of books, I picked up some snacks at the store, and I’m in my reading chair with my blanket and a cup of coffee. I am so ready. BUT. Before the readathon officially begins, I wanted to share my TBR (to be read) pile and my goals for the next 24 hours.
I went to the library and I’ve gathered a number of books to chose from during the readathon. I know I won’t get to all of them, but I wanted to have lots of options to pick from. Here is my TBR pile for the day:
- The Girl Giant by Kristen den Hartog
- Disgruntled by Asali Solomon
- The Lady Matador’s Hotel by Cristina García
- The Life and Death of Sophie Stark by Anna North
- The Lullaby of Polish Girls by Dagmara Dominczyk
- St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves by Karen Russell (short stories)
- Fight Club by Chuck Palahnuik
- Trillium by Jeff Lemire (graphic novel)
I am planning on starting with Fight Club by Chuck Palahnuik – I’ve been meaning to read it forever and it’s a good short book (200 pages) that I know I can finish in a fairly short amount of time. After I finish each book, I will rate them on Goodreads and post a quick update here with my thoughts.
I have a time goal and a book goal: my time goal is to read at least 12 total hours, and my book goal is to read at least three books. I definitely think my book goal is attainable – I am a fast reader, especially when I am focused and comfy. And I think I can hit 12 hours, especially with the assistance of cold weather and warm coffee.
So there’s where I stand as I begin the readathon! I will try and post updates here every few hours, but you’ll find much more frequent updates and musings over at Twitter (@EMurch). You can also find me over at Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/emurch). And now, happy reading!
