It's Read-A-Thon Time!! ...Well, almost...

Yep. It's almost here. Tomorrow, I and a whole lotta other people will be gettin' our read-a-thon on.

I can hardly wait! It's like Christmas, only without the tree, and the cold (at least I hope that it's without the cold! *shoots threatening glare at PA weather*) and without the presents and the music and the bell-ringers and the National Guard keeping the peace at Wal-Mart and the early Valentine's Day decorations starting to creep onto shelves... and, well ok, it's not like Christmas at all.

But it IS like an awesome day that allows me to read the hell out of some books! Ka-Ching!

Right... so, I know you're all dying to know what I might be reading. I won't keep you in suspense. Here it is... The Stack™.

Now what we have here, is a stack of 20 potential Read-a-thon books. All of these are from the books I'm selling to fund my move. I'm hoping to beat my October 2010 Read-a-thon best (*cough* ONLY) high score of 4 complete books. Five would be cool. Six or seven would be awesome.

Here is the list of candidates:
Confessions of a Shopaholic
The Case of the Drowsy Mosquito
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase
The Rising
Terminal Man
The American
The Spell of Seven
The Pilgrim's Progress
An Abundance of Katherines
Blue is for Nightmares
White Is for Magic
Ender's Game
The Maze Runner
The Doomsday Conspiracy
Alcatraz: the True End of the Line
Across the Universe


  1. Fun! I'm participating too! My stack of 'potentials' is crazy huge! But, I'm hoping to read 8, not including some really REALLY short little fairy tale retellings. :) Good luck Becky!

  2. That is an amazing stack!! I have a fairly big pile, but I have lots of small books and graphic novels to give me an over-inflated sense of accomplishment. :) Can't wait for tomorrow!

  3. This stack is great! You have an awesome mix of books in there.

  4. Push is a great readathon choice, as it's a quick read.

    Best of luck!!! :-D

  5. ooo, Ender's Game! When I saw that I wanted to add it to my own pile, but I think my copy is away in storage. Bummer.


  6. Awesome mix of books! I really liked Ender's Game, and after reading it I could totally understand why it's considered "classic" sci-fi. Anyway, good luck today! I'll be following you. :)
