Getting Ready for the Read-A-Thon & My Read-A-Thon Book Pile

It's almost time for the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon!

I have some yummy snacks planned and my books picked out...well I think I do.  Knowing me I may sneak a few more in there.  I love to have choices!

The top four I am already reading -

The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie - So far I am not a big fan.  I am over half way through but am not sure how much of this I'll read on Saturday.
Death of an Outsider by M.C. Beaton - I'm a little ways into this and am enjoying it immensely.  I love this series!  *Christmas Present from my husband*
Little Blog on the Prairie by Cathleen Davitt Bell - I'm almost half way through this book and it;s a lot of fun.
Reached by Ally Condie - Not sure I'll be reading much of this as the last time I read the last of a highly emotional trilogy during a RAT I was wiped for the rest of the time and found it hard to read at all.
As for the rest -
The Green Angel by Alice Hoffman -Looks interesting.  I have read one book by her before and enjoyed it.
The Giver by Lois Lowry - I keep meaning to read it...
Demons Are A Ghouls Best Friend by Victoria Laurie - I read the first in the series this year and really liked it.
She Did a Bad, Bad Thing by Stephanie Bond - Totally out of my normal genre.  I had it on my wish list for ages (not really sure why) so I figured I might try it for a change.
Murder Plays House by Ayelet Waldman - A good series I like.
The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson - I loved the first in this series and hated having to wait for the next book.
Undead and Unstable by MaryJanice Davidson - Who doesn't like Queen Betsy?  *Christmas Present from my best friend.*
Lily Dale: Connecting by Wendy Corsi Staub - Again, I love this series.
The Espressologist by Kristina Springer - Last RAT someone I was cheering for read this book and it intrigued me.  I found it at Half Price Books not long after and picked it up.
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts On Being A Woman by Nora Ephron - I have never read any of her books but it looks fun.
Romanced To Death by Susan Rogers Cooper - My favorite mystery series.  If you haven't read this series you are missing out!
Aunt Dimity and The Next of Kin by Nancy Atherton - We'll be seeing Nancy Atherton on Friday night at a local bookstore where she'll be signing her latest book in this series.  It's addictive.

After I took this picture and posted it to Facebook I realized I had a small stack of books I had set aside especially for the Read-A-Thon.

For You Mom, Finally by Ruth Reichl - She's one of my favorite food writers.
Great At Any Age * Who Did What From Age 1 to 100...and Beyond - Looks Interesting.
True Confessions by Jon Winokur - Looks juicy!
The Golden Mean by Nick Bantock - The next in the Griffin and Sabine series.  I read the one before this at the last RAT and found this the same day I found The Espessologist.

I can't wait to start reading!
