Readathon – October 2015

books for readathon

I’ve decided to do Dewey’s Readathon again this Autumn. It’s on Saturday from 2pm and lasts for 24 hours where people all over the world do nothing but read. I had such a great time back in April when I participated for the first time. I only read Jane Austen and had bought a beautiful clothbound collection for the occasion. This year, I’ll spice it up a bit:

A classic: John Steinbeck’s The Pearl
A reread: Henry James’ Daisy Miller
A bit of fantasy: Kirsty Logan’s The Gracekeeper
A dash of zombies: David Moody’s Autumn

I’ve decided to cheat a bit this year. The thing is, that I’ve got a birthday party Saturday night so that’s at least 6 hours that I’m out of the game. And I need my sleep (another 6-8 hours), now more than ever with the baby only 3 weeks away. That only leaves 10-12 hours to read, which is not enough for me. But that’s not going to stop me from participating – who knows when I’ll ever get the chance again? So I’m going to cheat. I’ll just start a bit earlier on Saturday – perhaps 10am.

I’ll post regularly here and blog and on Instagram.

What about you, will you be joining the Readathon?

  1. Hvor har du dog valgt nogle spændende bog – glæd dig særligt til ‘The Pear’ og ‘The Gracekeepers’. Jeg glæder mig virkelig til at følge dit læsedøgn.

  2. Du kan godt glæde dig til The Gracekeepers.
    Jeg tror også selv jeg vil snyde lidt og læse allerede fra om formiddagen af på et tidspunkt, selvom den plan har jeg forsøgt før og jeg når det stort set aldrig, hehe.

  3. Den bunke indeholder nogle ret interessante bøger – flere af dem står på min liste over bøger, jeg gerne vil læse 🙂

    Autumn har jeg ikke hørt så meget om, men jeg blev straks nysgerrig, da du skrev ‘zombier’, så den glæder jeg mig ekstra til at høre om 🙂

  4. Det virker som den helt perfekte læsestak, og jeg glæder mig inderligt til at følge dit læsedøgn. I øvrigt er jeg sikker på, du vil elske ‘The Pearl’. ‘The Gracekeepers’ er næsten også en succesgaranti, for den er så velskrevet, atmosfærisk og fin.

  5. Ooh yes, I saw your post in April and participated too (but lost it all on my bloc, because I decided to play with the themes – and it all went downhill). I think I will try again – thanks for the notice.
