Countdown to the Read-a-thon (not an A to Z post)

Saturday 26th of April will bring us to the biannual Dewey's Read-a-Thon, starting on this blog some time after 1pm (or whenever I manage to get home from work) and continuing until 1pm on Sunday 27th. There is still time to sign up and join in, or just join in without signing up, I don't think it matters, it's the reading that's important. Monkey and I have this nice pile of books to choose from, or any other random books that come our way in the intervening days (though I am nearly up to my borrow limit at the library). I am really looking forward to 'The Martian' by Andy Weir that I read about just the other day and ordered specially. 'The Hobbit' Monkey and I have been reading on and off for a couple of years and hope to get through a couple more pages, and the Caitlin Moran 'How to be a woman' I bought for Tish for Christmas and is there for a bit of light relief. 

This year we will be hosting a 'mini challenge' at the unearthly hour of 7am (or some time in the middle of the night if you are visiting from across the pond), so please do drop by and participate (there will be an announcement on the official site) - no spoilers yet, you will have to wait and see, but there will be a prize! 
The only thing left to do is bake the cake ... it's not a proper read-a-thon without cake.

  1. Martine, I wish I had the energy to even think about another challenge at the moment - especially when I would be taking part in the middle of the night! I wish you all the best with it.

    I would like to read Martian by Andy Weir, too. I have so much to catch up on on my Kindle. I need twice as many hours in the day.

  2. Those are some good picks there!! Daunting books though, especially Stephen King ;)But The Hobbit will be a fast one, and The Virgin Suicides is also pretty fast-paced.
    Btw, I am a new follower following readathon participants before Saturday! :)
