IT'S ALL ABOUT INDEPENDENCE READ-A-THON

I'm attempting to do this read-a-thon...big emphasis on "attempting"! You know me.  Just cannot pass on a read-a-thon.  Can anyone say glutton for punishment?  ;O)  I'm actually just now starting.  I was up super late last night working on my starting post for Christmas in July over on my Christmas blog and trying to get my mini-reviews written for the end of the month.  Still have to update my challenges...ugh! Anyhoo, here is what I'm thinking about reading this weekend:

Catch-up on read along reading:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks
To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
Roots by Alex Haley
(I can't believe that I own the latter two books, but have to check them out at the library because I STILL do not have all my books unpacked!)

What I might get to (doubtful):
Dante's Journey by JC Marino
The Greek Maiden and the English Lord by Patty Apostolides
and a myriad of other review books of which I'm dreadfully behind...oh well, such is my life.  If it's not hectic I guess it ain't livin' (like that Southern twang I threw in there?).

The read-a-thon goes from today through Monday.  Not sure if you can still sign up, but click the button above for details.  They're having a ton of giveaways and fun trivia contests too.

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!

  1. The Book Thief and Roots are among my favorites! Happy Reading!
    And good luck :)
