Read-a-Thon: I'm In!

I'm cutting it close with this post -- the Read-a-Thon starts in less than 10 minutes! -- but my wife has given me leave from our Saturday chores and errands (thanks, sweetheart!), so I'm going to try my first ever read-a-thon.

For those unfamiliar, basically, one reads for 24 hours. (!!)  It's a decadence I can't imagine, and I'm dying to, well, go back to bed and get started!

The image is of my tentative TBR -- mostly books from the review queue, but we'll see what catches my fancy.  I've got about twice that amount of e-books which I won't list.

To get started, here's a questionnaire participants are encouraged to share:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

Cambridge, Massachusetts!  

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

I am over-the-moon giddy excited for Nicola Griffith's Hild.  I adore Griffith's novels although most of them have been contemporary or futuristic/speculative.  I know she's been working on Hild for years and as a hist fic addict, I can't wait.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

Coffee.  Does that count as a snack?  Then the box of baked goods my wife got me from the Danish Pastry House as a good luck treat!

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

I'm in my early 30s, I work for a non-profit, I've got three cats and a pretty amazing wife.  I'm a beginner knitter who is knitting a blanket for my wife inspired by her favorite book, Moby-Dick.  (I'm very lucky I married a passionate reader!)


  1. I'm unofficially participating. Fiance is working all day, I'm being lazy, and I have a book review due Tuesday. Good luck!

  2. Look at that stack--holy cow! Hope you're having a great readathon so far. Eye of the #TeamTiger!
