October ReadAThon - Making Plans

 It's that time of year agaatin: Dewey's 24 Hour ReadAThon.  It happens twice a year, April and October, though I haven't been able to pin down if it's the same weekend each time or not.  Would be great for my ADHD brain in terms of planning. Anywho...

I plan on reading 4 books this weekend starting at 8 AM.  I have quite a few books on my Mock Newbery list and I want to knock some of them off! I'll be choosing from:

The Fingertips of Duncan Dorffman by Meg Wolizter
Amelia Lost by Candace Fleming
Missing on Superstition Mountain by Elise Broach
Bird in a Box by Andrea Davis Pinkney
Freedom Stone by Daniel Kluger
The Trouble with May Amelia by Jennifer L. Holm
City of Orphans by Avi

Some of the books are library books and I might dive into those first.  There's a good mix of genre's though no graphic novels, so don't be surprised if one shows up this weekend.


  1. My start time is 8am too, which isn't too early although it means that I can't indulge at Friday's Octoberfest.

    Your stack sounds great! I'll be reading, cheering and hosting a mini-challenge, and of course I will be taking a lot of Twitter breaks. And I think the October Readathon is the second to last weekend of the month, because I know my first Oct Readathon was on Oct. 24, 2009.

  2. Oooh, have fun!! I'm out of town this weekend or else I might have joined y'all! :)

  3. Amelia Lost is a great book! Happy reading!


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!
