It's official - I'm joining in the 24-hour Read-a-Thon this weekend as a reader. I was telling my husband about it this morning and his question was "What is a read-a-thon". I told him it was a bunch of us on the internet getting together to read and blog for a 24-hour period. He just looked at me like I was crazy, but he's a Viking reenactor now so I can't be too crazy (actually I think the Viking thing is cool). So I'm looking forward to it - it's my time to socialize with like-minded people and spend my time reading.

The good news is DH and DS#1 will be hunting together all day so that just leaves me and DS#2 and DS#2 is very low maintenance when his older brother is not around. So I am looking forward to an enjoyable day.

Will I read for 24-hours. Nope, I have to sleep and feed the kids and do other things, but I plan to read as much as I can and blog too. I'll probably turn in around 11pm that night and maybe get up a little early and read some more, but I'm not sure. But I will be reading and blogging.

I participated in a limited fashion in the spring but plan to be more involved this time (I have a laptop!)

So what am I planning on reading? (in no particular order)

  1. Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich (library)
  2. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson (library)
  3. Black Hills by Nora Roberts (library)
  4. Sex, Drugs and Gefilte Fish (review)
  5. Spinning Forward by Terri DuLong (review)
  6. The Maze Runner by James Dasher (review)
  7. Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan (library)
  8. Always Watching by Brandilyn and Amberly Collins (library)
  9. Last Breath by Brandilyn and Amberly Collins (review)
  10. The Christmas Clock by Kat Martin (review)
Okay I probably won't get through all of those obviously, but that's the list I want to tackle. I tried to mix various genres and lengths in there so I won't be bored. Some books I have to get read for reviews next week and some need to go back to the library so I will have a purpose on Saturday.

So are you joining in? Do you have your reading list or do you plan on cheerleading?

Your husband is a viking reinactor???? I've always wanted to know someone that did that.
Congrats on deciding to join in on the read-a-thon fun!

Yep - he just got trained in the sword fighting and other reenacting techniques - he loves it. I just want to make clothes and dress up :) Though I can't wait to see him in action.

I have a good sized list, but I have no allusions that I'll finish it all. I do plan on doing some cheerleading as well...gotta keep my fellow readers reading!
