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

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

It's the night before and Nancy and I are up making snacks.  Yum!
I've also got a pile of books to choose from.

The top three I'm already reading -

Deep in the Valley by Robyn Carr - I'm hoping to finish this one.  I just love her books.

Let Me Whisper in Your Ear by Mary Jane Clark - I think I'm about a 100 pages in.

Flip This Zombie by Jesse Petersen - I liked the first book better but this one is OK so far.

The next three Nancy and I both chose.  We'll both read one of them during the read-a-thon-

Lifelines by CJ Lyons - I have had this for a few years (I got it as an Easter present the year it came out) and keep wanting to read it and not getting around to it.

Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich - We read the first in the series two years ago and liked it a lot.

Not Becoming My Mother by Ruth Reichl - Woops, this isn't one to read with Nancy!  I love Ruth Reichl and Richard found this for me last weekend at a booksale.  It's short and might be nice to read during the RAT.

Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson - I love Maureen Johnson and Nancy found this last week on a book buying outing so we threw it into the mix.

Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen - This author was on my list to try this year.  After reading a review I decided to add this book to my pile.

I'm also cheering.  I'm head cheerleader for Team Owl.

I can't wait for the RAT to begin!  Now off to finish our snacks!


  1. More #catladiesofreadathon! \o/ ALL THE CATLADIES! o/
    Suddenly I feel like a bad nerdfighter for not having read Maureen Johnson. Another thing to be added to my TBR-list? (^_^;)\

  2. Maureen Johnson is awesome! 13 Little Blue Envelopes got me hooked and I have been reading her every since. Definitely worth an add.
