Read A Thon – What Am I Reading?


The Dewey 24 hr. ReadAThon starts Saturday, April 10, 2010 at 8AM EST.

I have several books in my pile to start me out:


The Heaven Trilogy by Angela Johnson


The First Part Last and

Sweet, Hereafter

Sweet, Hereafter is on my Mock Printz list. 

readathon 004Happyface by Stephen Emond  which is also on the list.

Hotlanta by Denene Millner and Mitzi Miller – courtesy of Rasco from RIF.

readathon 002Rapunzel’s Revenge by Shannon and Dean Hale – a graphic novel.

Here Comes the Garbage Barge by Jonah Winter – for the Mock Newbery list.


This gives me a variety:  long and short YA, a graphic novel, and a picture book. 

My only problem is (almost) everything is Realistic Fiction.  Even my two adult backup books – Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (which I’ve been reading for over 3 weeks!) and The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. 

I may have to search the house for some Action/Adventure or Fantasy to break things up!

If you have some suggestions, leave them in the comment area.

I’m heading out to pick up some snacks and finishing up some chores before off to bed and the big day! 

Also, for each book I read, I’m donating a book to Guys Lit Wire’s current charity! 


  1. Have fun tomorrow!!! I can't wait! :)

  2. You have a great pile! Rapunzel's Revenge is a great book, perfect for the readathon. First Part Last is also in my pile for tomorrow too. I may just read it first. Glad to see you're supporting Guys Lit Wire. I sent them a couple of books a few days ago. Happy reading! I'll be cheering you on!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
