Today marks the start of the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon, which is hosted by Bex at Kindle Fever and April at My Shelf Confessions. The read-a-thon goes through midnight on Sunday night. As with most read-a-thons, I haven't really carved time out of my life to read, but I'm going to read more than usual during these next three days. I also am participating in the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon (Sat at 8am - Sun at 8am) so I'll be reading extra during that time, particularly Saturday night.
Anyway, here's what I have on tap for the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon:
First, I need to finish The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen. I'm starting the read-a-thon on page 49 so I need to read another 358 pages to finish. Then I'll move on to Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. That is 298 pages long. I think it's reasonable to say I can read these two books by the end of the weekend. That would be 656 pages. If by some miracle I get through both, I will pick up Godmother by Carolyn Turgeon. I highly doubt that will happen though. We'll see.
I'll be keeping track of pages, rather than hours. I have found with past read-a-thons that I fit reading in at all sorts of odd times throughout the day, so keeping track of hours just doesn't work for me.
There's still time to sign up for the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon. Signups will be open until Saturday at midnight.
