Read Your Own Books Read-A-Thon

Of course, I'm starting late! The boys had their first day of school yesterday so they slept in late recuperating.  So anytime they oversleep, I do too because they're not bugging me to get up...LOL! Anyway, I'm starting now (at 12:00 noon CT).

My list is kind of long and I know I probably will not get to them all, but I want to have a variety available:

Under the Dome--Stephen King (I'm starting off with this, but I probably will not finish it...it's a monster!)
Sense & Sensibiltiy--Jane Austen
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane--Katherine Howe
The Lady and the Unicorn--Tracy Chevalier
The Other Queen--Philippa Gregory
Scarlet Women--J.D. Christilian
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister--Gregory Maguire
The Stone Virgin--Barry Unsworth
Paint It Black--Janet Fitch
People of the Book--Geraldine Brooks
Echoes from the Macabre--Daphne Du Maurier (stories...possibly to break up the monotony)

I'll be checking in with people I follow who are participating and perhaps making new friends along the way!

And here we go...

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  7. Great mix of choices! I love Sense and Sensibility and really like People of the Book (one of my favs last year).
