High Summer Read-a-Thon - Reading Plans #HSreadathon

I'm late to my own party! Better late than never, right!?

The High Summer Read-a-Thon started today at 12:00am over at Seasons of Reading (my read-a-thon blog). In case you may have missed it, you can still join us by signing up here. I'm hoping I can focus some time on reading this week while still trying to eke out some word count for Camp NaNoWriMo (#epicfail so far, once again).

Here's what I plan to read:

  • The Lady and the Unicorn, Tracy Chevalier - catch up on the section for tomorrow's TuesBookTalk and finish it at the end of the read-a-thon
  • The Blade of the Samurai, Susan Spann - for review on Wednesday
  • Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen and the Men who Loved Her, Robert Stephen Parry - finish
  • Jurassic Park (Michael Crichton) and The Crystal Cave (Mary Stewart) - books I'm reading with my sons for our Family Reading Project. We average about 20 minutes per night, alternating titles. That's all I can squeeze out of them. lol
  • March, Geraldine Brooks - Finally time to crack open one of the selections for Lit Collective in August. 
  • The Queen's Exiles, Barbara Kyle - get started on this toward the end for review on Tuesday.
What are you reading this week? Are you joining me for the read-a-thon? I hope so!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

    I just found out about the read-a-thon and posted my starting post! So excited :)

  2. I am! Several review books I have to get to this week, so a readathon was just what I needed!

  3. I'm starting with The Bookman's Tale, which I'm in the middle of. I'm hoping to get to some others, but we'll see how it goes! Thanks for hosting!

  4. I'll be interested in hearing how you liked March--I had mixed feelings myself, but it was an interesting premise. My favorite Michael Crichton is still The Great Train Robbery. I used to love reading with my kids--we still occasionally trade books :)

    Like the new look!
