I am participating in a read-a-thon this weekend!!
The excellent bloggers over at Once Upon A Chapter are hosting a read-a-thon starting today and the rules are simple and easy!
- Read AS MUCH AS YOU CAN from Friday, August 5, 2011 at midnight until Sunday, August 7, 2011 at 11:59pm.
- Have a starting line update/post (which is this post for me) and an finish line update/post.
- Update at the end of EACH day.
Being that I do not have anything important planned this weekend, I thought that this would be a great opportunity to get some reading in! I have SEVERAL (ten to be exact) books that were on my summer reading list that I have not gotten to yet.
Here are the books I plan to dive into this weekend:
These two books are obvious choices since I post about them weekly:
Books that I would like to complete during the read along are these two:
I started reading this book as a read-along, but finals arrived and I became wayyyyyy behind. This book takes a lot of thinking and I feel that some time it is best to read a little, marinate on what you read and come back to it later. The goal is to read just 50 pages. Which is all I read of it a month anyway.
This book is actually a re-read. I read it years ago and feel that I need to re-read it before tackling the sequel to it. Being that I am reading so many books for this read-a-thon, my goal for the weekend is to only read the first 50 pages.
The following books are all new books that I have not started reading yet. The goal for each one of these books this weekend is to get through the first 50 pages of each one.
I am participating in a read-along of this book where I need to have the first volume (150 pages) read by Thursday. Hey! Go check out Bread Crumb Reads to find out about the read-along.
This book is my "get out the house" book. Meaning that I usually head to the bookstore grab it and read it for an hour or two. Its my escape from all my other reading (and because I am on a STRICT budget and cannot buy books for awhile).
So here are my book choices for the read-a-thon!!! I think I am taking on a lot but hey, its a read-a-thon!!
