I love readathons (what's better than an entire weekend of nothing but books, books, and people who like books talking about books, books, and people who like books?), and the #24in48 is one of my favorites. It's a bit more flexible than the Dewey readathon (the goal: 24 hours of reading in a 48-hour timeframe), and I'm always thrilled when the dates work in my schedule.
The question, of course, is what books to read on these precious reading-only days. This time around, because I have a smash of book club, readalong, review and release deadlines coming up in the next two weeks, I'm going to try to clear through some of my commitments so I can turn to backlist for the rest of the month. Here's what I'm eying:
Zeroes, by Chuck Wendig (the bound manuscript with no spine)
Summer Sisters, by Judy Blume
A Man Called Ove, by Frederik Backman
The Beautiful Bureaucrat, by Helen Phillips
Waiting for Snow in Havana, by Carlos Eire
The Automobile Club of Egypt, by Alaa Al Aswany
