is this Saturday, October 18th. For 24 consecutive hours, starting at 5 am pacific time, participants will read as much as they choose while cheerleaders and others cheer them on. There will be mini-challenges and great prizes to win.
For the last Read-a-thon I read short stories, children’s books, poetry, plays, and graphic novels. This time will be no different. By reading short works I keep the fun going and the pressure off though I will not be online this time.
My reading picks are:
Sinners Welcome – Mary Karr (poetry)
6 short stories from The Best American Short Stories of the Century
A Midsummer’s Night Dream – Shakespeare
Repair – C.K. Williams (poetry)
2 short stories from Alice Munro’s Runaway
6 short stories from The Better of McSweeney’s
3 short stories from The Best American Mystery Stories 2007
This year’s batch of Tin House magazine that I had not read though I subscribe faithfully to it
the rest of The Grapes of Wrath – John Steinbeck
The Shiniest Jewel – Marian Henley (graphic novel)
I predict that I’ll get halfway through this list.
