Prepping for the Dewey's Readathon!

Tomorrow is the annual 24-hour spring readathon hosted by the good people over at Dewey's Readathon.  As usual, I've decided to do a mixture of electronic and "real" books.  The readathon starts at 7 a.m. my time and my goal is to read books straight through and take 30 minute breaks in between books.

I know that I won't make it through all of the books.  I generally make it through four to six books before fatigue sets in.  But my planned list is as follows, in no particular order:

  1. Sky of Red Poppies by Zohreh Ghahremani
  2. King Peggy by Peggielene Bartels & Eleanor Herman
  3. The Red Chamber by Pauline A. Chen
  4. 40 Love by Madeleine Wickham
  5. No One in the World by E. Lynn Harris & RM Johnson

E-books
  1. Mrs. Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn
  2. The Secrets of Mary Bowser by Lois Leveen (already halfway through, but need to finish)
  3. Hollywood Scandals by Gemma Halliday

Like I said, I won't get through all of these, but by picking so many, I'm giving myself permission to put down anything that doesn't catch my fancy and move on to something that does.  Look for updates throughout the day and, if you're participating too, please share what you're reading or leave links to your blog so we can check you out.
