Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon: Time to show my pile

I might as well show what I have stacked up for Dewey's 24-hour Readathon. This is my 4th Readathon as a reader and I am looking forward to catching up with reading. Due to Diwali and all, my reading has been slacking.

So here is my tentative pile, in no particular order:

1) Theft of the Master by Edwin Alexander
2) Drawing in the Dust by Zoe Klein
3) The Imposters' Daughter by Laurie Sandell
4) Poetic Musings of an Old, Fat Man by Harry E. Gilleland, Jr
5) Meggie's Remains by Joanne Sundell
6) The Puzzle King by Betsy Carter
7) The Brutal Telling by Louisa Penny
8) Night of Flames by Douglas Jacobson
9) Under The Unbroken Sky by Shandi Mitchell
10) Judah's Lion by Anne Caston
11) Stones From The River by Ursula Hegi (1994)
Mother of Pearl by Melinda Haynes (1999)
13) And This Too Shall Pass by E. Lynn Harris (1996)
14) The Manhattan Hunt Club by John Saul (2001)
15) Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett (1994)
16) The King's General by Daphne du Maurier (1947)
17) Tintin Albums

(4) and (10) are poetry books. No, I am not going to read all!
I think I will read 6-7 books out of these. I might change my mind and add a THICK book, like The 19th Wife! Let's see how I fare.

24-hour Readathon, here I come!

The Impostor's Daughter is perfect for the read-a-thon.

Ronnica said...

Sounds exciting! I haven't read any of those books, though I've heard of Thief of Time. It may have to be something I pick up some day!

I just tried to read Mother of Pearl recently and couldn't....maybe you will have better luck with it! You've got quite a stack to choose from for the Read-a-thon. :)

Staci said...

Good luck with that impressive list!! :)

Unknown said...

You have way more books than I do, and you'll probably end up reading them all. I'll be lucky if I get thru 3 of mine.

The Brutal Telling should be really good. Have fun this weekend. I can't join this time around because I'm going to be in Salt Lake City attending the Book Festival.

Tea said...

Good luck! I wanted to try the Read-A-Thon. I don't really know what to do. That leaves a next time. I won't miss the next one. Fingers crossed.

I so wanted to participate in this but I know I wouldn't be able to devote the time to it. I'm hoping to join in next time.

Good luck!

Looks like a good list.

Night of Flames is a good choice. I loved it!

Have fun! The Girl and I will be over Serena's doing our reading. Thank goodness she's feeling better because I really wanted to participate. I'm hoping to beat my whopping 1 completed book from the last readathon. LOL
