Preparing for the Read-a-Thon!

O.K, here are my books. I am hoping to get through at least 2 of them, but that will depend on my mood. I may just skip around. The stack:

The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien (BOCD for when my eyes get tired or I'm in the car!)
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
The Piano Teacher by Janice Y.K. Lee
Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King (on the Kindle)

I am already in the middle of The Dovekeepers and A Game of Thrones, so I'll probably try to continue with those as well as start something new. I will have to be away from home for 4 or 5 hours, but the rest of the day/night will be devoted to reading (and reading and reading!) Must plan my usual snacks of trail mix, veggies, cheese and fruit, a Coke Cherry Zero for the wee hours, and plenty of tea. No sweets, as they will just make me sleepy. Good luck, everyone. Stop by and say hello!


  1. Ha! I guess yo are doing it this year! YAY!
    I will put your blog in my favorites so I can visit you.

    I have not read "The Dovekeepers" yet, although I love Alice Hoffman! So I will prob end up reading it sometime.
    I have "Divergent" on my nook but have not read that yet either.

    Good luck girl!

  2. Hi, I'm back to keep you company during the Read-a-Thon again! Your stack of books is filled with great titles - I was kind of hoping to read "A Wrinkle in Time" myself during the Thon, but I'll see how I feel. I don't really have a stack of books to choose from this year, just a house full and a few library books - I'll be winging it this year.

    Whew, I'd better get to bed so I can get up and start in time! See you in a few hours!
