TSS: October 18 (Read-a-thon Prep)

The Sunday Salon.com This has been a pretty weird week. It’s fall break at my university at the moment, and it’s completely thrown my sense of time off. I kept thinking every day was Saturday, which was nice, but now that it’s Sunday that I feel the impending doom of Monday. And I didn’t read nearly as many books as I wanted to this week!

I hope I can concentrate better during the Fall 24 Hour Read-a-thon next Saturday. It’s tough wrenching myself away from the computer (and from those wedding reality shows on We) long enough to read a book for longer than 10 minutes at a time. I may just have to turn the TV off (omg) and simply listen to my iPod instead, but who knows.

As for my reading plans, I don’t have a definitive list but I’m thinking I’ll try to read at least two of the Rosemary Sutcliff books in my library book pile, Sophie Kinsella’s newest book (Twenties Girl), and maybe a graphic novel or two. I’ve actually still got the same graphic novels I was reading from during the last read-a-thon— how sad is my TBR pile? Sheesh.

Anyway, I have a few more YA books that aren’t too insanely long I can try reading for the read-a-thon, as well as some shortish mysteries, so I’m pretty much set. What are you planning to read? Do you have a list?

  1. I saw that book at the store today by Scott Westerfield (sp?).. oh I may have butchered the name. The cover just draws you in. I am glad to see it rated so well with you.. I may have to give it a shot!

    Good luck with the readathon! 🙂

  2. Just wanted to drop by and say you have some very cool books in your current reading line up! Loved ‘The Affinity Bridge’ and ‘Dracula’ is one of my favourite classics. How is the Septimus Heap series holding up as you read more books?

    1. I really didn’t enjoy the third book, but the fourth and fifth were much better and I’m enjoying the series again. 😀 The fifth book is just as good as the first, thankfully, so I think I’ll keep on reading the series.
