I’ve wanted to participate in a readathon for a while, but with school and work and everything, the timing just didn’t work out. But, it turns out that I accidentally got a week ahead on my homework, and I have no plans this weekend, so I can dedicate a full day to just reading. After seeing Whitney’s post yesterday, I knew I had to do it.
Here are the books I am planning on reading:
- Saga Vol. 5 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples. I’ve wanted to read this for a while, and I think it’s perfect for a readathon because I can read it in an hour or two.
- The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion. I loved The Rosie Project, and I’ve had the sequel laying around for a while. The first book only took me about four or five hours to read, and I’ve been itching to pick this one up lately, so I’m excited to finally read it.
- The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I was going to go with Peter Pan – it’s on my TBR for this month – but I can’t find my copy anywhere, so Oz it is! I actually really want to read this, so I’m pretty excited about it.
- Egghead by Bo Burhnam. This book is probably going to take me less than an hour to read, because it’s mostly pictures. So I decided to throw it in there, just because.
There’s my list! A grand total of 922 pages. I have no idea if that’s going to be way too much or too little, but I think I can do it. Two of those books have quite a few pictures, and one is a graphic novel, so I’m hoping they go by quickly. If I manage to finish all of them, I plan on moving straight on into another book (I haven’t decided which yet, but I have plenty to chose from). All of these books also count towards at least one of the challenges I’m doing this year, so that’s awesome.
I don’t think I’m going to plan on waking up at 5 am tomorrow (which is when the readthon starts in my time zone), but I have no qualms about reading until 5 am the next morning. So I might be able to get close to the full 24 hours worth of reading done.
