Read-a-thon This Weekend

This weekend will be my first time participating in Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-Thon, and let me just tell ya, I hope I can make it the whole 24 hours! I've only ever been awake that long maybe twice in my whole life, and the fact that I'll have to read/blog about reading the entire time is going to be a challenge. Oh, and let me also add that my start time is 7am!!!! AGH!!! I am SOOOOO not a morning person. Why can't the start time be 7pm? I'd do so much better with that, I think. :o)

Anyhooooo, I've got a few books that I know I want to read for the read-a-thon, and get the reviews written for them, too. Here's my initial list, but it may change:

White Picket Fences by Susan Meissner
Talking to the Dead by Bonnie Grove
The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer
It's All About Us by Shelley Adina
Diamond Place by Robin Lee Hatcher

Hopefully, I can make it through this entire list if I go to the quietest part of the house. :o) I can best read when there is no noise, so I might want to grab a set of earplugs to ensure that. There will be some distractions in the house this weekend by way of DH hanging a new light fixture in the dining room as well as replacing our kitchen faucet. Yep, earplugs will definitely come in handy. :o)


  1. Oooh have fun with the challenge! I just finished Talking to the Dead 5 minutes ago...I LOVED IT! You have some good books there I hope you can make it thru 24 hrs!!!!

  2. I hope I can, too, Renee!! I did just find out, though, that DH will not be installing my faucet or light fixture this weekend. :( Instead, he's going to a Nascar race with his dad. That may actually work in my favor....complete silence in the whole house. :o)

  3. I really liked Talking to the Dead too. Try to read that one. :)

  4. You have some really good books. I know I can't stay up for the entire time. I'll cheer you on!


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
