Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon
I'm going to be participating in my first readathon ever with Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon next Saturday. It starts at seven AM for me so I'm taking that as a good sign I can do it. If it had started late at night or too early in the morning I wouldn't have been able to stay away for it and would have been demotivated.
I've already got a small stack of books that I think are doable for it. I have a classic, a Newbery book, a book that's been on my shelf awhile and a book I want to read just because.
The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
The Beach House by Jane Green
Somewhere in Time by Richard Matheson
If I don't have Moby-Dick done by then (which I probably won't since I'm only 300 pages in right now) and I finish these four then I'm going to spend the rest of my time working on that beast.
Getting three of these books (minus Winn-Dixie since it belongs to my girls) out of my bookcase and into my rummage sale pile makes me very excited!
