Read-A-Thon Weekend! Break Out the Books!

It’s that time of year again! The time of year for Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon! As I’m writing this post, a post I meant to write at least a week ago but better late than never, right?, It's less than 18 hours until my reading time begins! I’m really looking forward to spending several uninterrupted hours reading. I know that, at some point, the lure of the computer will be too much and I’ll visit other participating bloggers and post updates about my reading.

I think it’s great that readers who don’t have blogs can participate through Facebook and Twitter: @readathon. All the info is at Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon site.

I’ve made a list of books but it will probably change and I know I won’t touch most of these!:

Fury by Salman Rushdie

Faith by Jennifer Haigh

Galore by Michael Crummey

Far To Go by Alison Pick

Strange Relations by Rachel Hadas

Dreams of Joy by Lisa See
