Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-thon

I am signed up for the 2-hour Read-a-thon for this Saturday. It starts at 7AM my time. You can go to Dewey's Read-a-thon blog to sign up and to get all the info. They have these twice a year, but this will be my first time. I have clued my husband in on it - and I figure since he starts golfing this weekend and will golf just about every Sunday through September - that he can give me this one day! We will see how that goes...

So, I thought that I would share my potential list of books. I am going to throw everything in here that I can think of, so I have a large selection to choose from.

From the library:
Murder, Mayhem and a Fine Man - Claudia Mair Burney (already started)
Foolproofing Your Life - Jan Silvious
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrow
Remember to Forget - Deborah Raney
Gone - Michael Grant

The Lost Hours - Karen White (already started)
The Girl She Used to Be - David Cristofano
Unquiet Bones - Mel Starr
So Not Happening - Jenny B. Jones (Just got this one today!)
Jantsen's Gift - Pam Cope and Amy Malloy
Flirting with Temptation - Kelley St. John
Fire Me - Libby Malin
Wild Highland Magic - Kendra Leigh Castle
Ultimatum - Matthew Glass
Spiced - Dahlia Jurgenson
Outcasts United - Warren St. John
Sag Harbor - Colson Whitehead
Big Sid's Vincati - Matthew Biberman

My own books:
Ink Exchange - Melissa Marr (If it comes in the mail!)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling
Sunday at Tiffany's - James Patterson
Wintergirls -Laurie Halse Anderson
Inkheart - Cornelia Funke

That should be a good list! Happy Reading! See you all on Saturday!

Great list! I only have five books in my readathon pile so we'll see how that goes. Your Noah's Ark header is lovely stitching. :)

Great list! I was really excited about the read-a-thon earlier in the week.... but now the idea of staying up 24 hours is started to get scary lol ;)

My daughter and I will be doing the read-a-thon together. When I get home this evening, we'll pull out some books. I'll be starting The Lost Hours on the train this afternoon, so I'll want to finish that. I'm thinking about reading Guernsey, too. We'll see. I just signed up this morning (I caved!) so I'll have to do my planning this evening. Good luck, and have fun!

I finally bit the bullet and signed up at the last minute. I wish it started at seven here, but we start at 6am. I'd better get to bed soon. Happy reading.
