Gosh, I can't believe it's nearly time for the readathon again! Go here for details if you don't know what I'm going on about:
Exciting stuff. That's Patrick during April's readathon, having made off with my book!
My pile is - as it was last year - modest. I'm going to use it to catch up on a couple of challenges; specifically this one:
http://www.myfriendamysblog.com/2009/07/newsweek-youre-on-fifty-books-for-our.html and my very own challenge celebrating New Zealand Book Month :)
http://justaddbooks.blogspot.com/2009/09/business-time.html and don't forget the tasty badges that http://astripedarmchair.wordpress.com/ and http://bkclubcare.wordpress.com/ made for it. (Still time to join. Runs until the end of October).
So. Here's my pile:
The City & The City by China Meiville
Salt by Maurice Gee
The Changeover by Margaret Mahy
The Dark Blue 100-Ride Bus Ticket by Margaret Mahy
Regeneration by Pat Barker
Queen of Sorcery by David Eddings
I'm also going to start reading earlier than I did last year. My time, the readathon starts at midnight Saturday. But I'm going to start on Saturday afternoon, when Patrick is down for a nap. The bonus extra of that is, that on Sunday afternoon, once my 24 hours are up, I'll be all over the cheerleading, like a cat on a lap.
Good plan, I think. I hope it holds up ...
