Readathon is upon me!

Well, nearly. I'm starting in about an hour because the official start time is 1am here, so I'm getting the jump - lol.

I have a smallish pile of five books, and I'm going to start with the shortest which is Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

In fact, here is the pile  I prepared earlier. :D From the bottom up we have: The Best of Both Worlds by Karen Lord, The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan, The Fellowship of the Ring (which I'm about halfway through in a very lazy re-read; I wanted something cosy and familiar in the pile) and Ruby Slippers, Golden Tears, short story fairytale retellings, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling.

I'm not expecting to get through all of them because of sleep and Patrick, but I'm just reading this year and not cheering (though cheerleaders are awesome), so I'm going to get through as much as I can.

I have potato chips, chocolate, coke in the fridge and ice cream in the freezer.

Hit it.
