It's one of the greatest reading weekends of the years, fellow bookworms: Readathon is nearly upon us! I'm so looking forward to taking a day away from reality to immerse myself in books, books, books. I've got a varied and ambitious stack: my main goals are to finish The Mothers, and catch up on a large chunk of The Count of Monte Cristo. But I've collected some other books that have been eying me (and a few shorties to help fill small gaps in the day) and I'm ready for action on Saturday:
- The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas
- The Mothers, by Brit Bennet
- A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles
- My Life in France, by Julia Child
- Chronicle of a Death Foretold, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
- Ella Minnow Pea, by Mark Dunn
- Milk and Honey, by Rupi Kaur
- Urgent: Untold Stories, by Roxane Gay
- The Invasion of the Tearling, by Erika Johansen (audio; not pictured)
Of course I won't get to all of these, but the lady likes diversity in options. I know I won't come close to 24 hours of reading: I've got a race scheduled for Saturday morning, and at some point during the day I know I'll be heading to Curious Iguana to check out their in-store readathon (doubling as a fundraiser for an awesome local nonprofit). If you're local-ish, be sure to check it out!
And last but not least, stay tuned for a mini-challenge from me coming up in Hour 19 on Saturday...
