Okay, I wasn’t going to join today’s read-a-thon, but changed my mind at the last minute. It’s not easy missing this event and I can’t help but miss Dewey more on read-a-thon day. She was such an amazing person. So here I am 5 o’clock in the morning with a fresh cup of coffee and an energetic three month old in my arms. I don’t know much reading I’m going to be able to get done, but that’s okay. I’m just going to read and think of Dewey.
- The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman (fairy tale retelling)
- The Autobiography of Malcolm X (memoir)
- A House of My Own by Sandra Cisneros (memoir)
- The Wrath and the Dawn by Rene Ahdieh (fairy tale retelling)
- A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
- Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman (YA)
- The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls (memoir)
- March Vols. 1 and 2 by John Lewis (graphic memoir)
- not pictured: Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Sherlock retelling?) and anything interesting that I can find on Scribd
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Southern California
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? There’s so many interesting books in my stack and it’s hard to choose just one. Maybe the Arabian Nights retelling The Wrath and the Dawn by Rene Ahdieh.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? For the first time ever, I don’t have many snacks. I’ll probably just eat granola bars. Boring I know.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! For the past eight years, I’ve been blogging. I even participated in the very first read-a-thon with Dewey. Plus, I’m a mother of four kids ages 14, 12, 10, and 3 months.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? The most important thing is to always have fun.
I’m off to read! Are you joining today’s read-a-thon?
