Day: October 19, 2007


Tomorrow is the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. It starts 2PM GMT which is 9AM EST for me. There is a good chance I’ll start at 10AM because I will work late tonight. I do not plan to stay up all 24 hours because I can’t afford to do that during the school year, and I’ve only ever done that when travelling or when I did blogathon a couple years ago (in the summer). I intend to update every couple of hours at least. I’ll post book reviews of any books I finish after Sunday.

I’m very excited because I have not been able to read very much at all this year. It’s been hectic and it seems it continue to be as I get older. So it’s good to take some time to dedicate to reading. Here are some books I plan or may read tomorrow:

First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde – I got it today! I love the Thursday Next books; I’m pretty psyched to read this.
The Illyrian Adventure by Lloyd Alexander – Which I first read when I was 11.
Neuromancer by William Gibson
One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksande Solzhenitsyn
Hunrgy Planet by Peter Menzel
The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

So I doubt I’ll finish more than two books (if I’m lucky) in the marathon since most of these books aren’t small and not all are exactly light. These are actually the shortest of the books I have in my TBR queue. See you all tomorrow then!
