Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon is TOMORROW!
But what will I be reading, I hear you cry! Hang on guys, I'm just getting to it! Behold!
Watership Down by Richard Adams- It's the book I'm reading at the moment and I'm... I don't hate it, but it's not going down so quickly. So, I'll read it in a time where I'm not going to do anything but read! Then I'll have to read the fucker!
The Hours by Michael Cunningham- This is one of my favourite ever books, so I'd read it in any kind of situation. Sadly, I'll probably only read it if I'm struggling with everything else, but it's like the greatest back-up ever.
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe- A bit of an eccentric choice, but it's part of my Back to the Classics Challenge list, and it's short. Which is always good.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling- It looks funny. Funny is good. I'm way excited to read it.
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood- Possibly the book least likely to be read (sorry, Margaret!) but it seems like everyone's been reading this lately, and, well, I wanna! It looks too big and exhausting to be anything but book 1 though, and that honour is already with Watership Down.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon- I read this in an afternoon once, it can be done again.
And the two books at the back are just in case I get tired of reading actual words and want some pictures as well! So they are Moomins Volume 2, and MetaMaus, which I'm so excited about reading I could puke! So maybe, you know, I'll get 'bored of reading words' pretty quickly, you know what I'm saying?
That was probably more explanation than anyone in the world needed, but hey, I like to explain things. So, tell me- who is else readathoning? And what are you planning on reading? I really need to know, cause I could easily change my choices!
