It's a pathetically small pile, isn't it, but then, my ambitions for the readathon are pretty small too.
I'll be cheerleading as well, on and off, so I anticipate sporadic commenting and pompom shaking (no short skirts, though _ I wouldn't do that to you all). So I figured I'd stack up a (small) pile of books that I maybe have half a chance of getting through.
Plus also, I think the readathon starts at midnight on Saturday my time.
Which is good from one point of view, as the boy will be in bed, and the husband gets up for him on Sunday, so theoretically, I could read all night.
However, I and all mothers of small children would trade all of their worldly goods for one thing: more sleep, so I won't be doing the full 24 hours. I'll do as many as I can, and try and keep track (although I'm really bad at that kind of thing) and you know, cheer on the real hardcore readers.
Oh! If you can't see the titles, this is my "pile":
Under the Mountain by Maurice Gee
The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
Howl's Moving Castle by Diane Wynne Jones
A Guide to the Birds of East Africa by Nicholas Drayson
Shamefully small, isn't it? It's okay _ you can say it.
