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'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...


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.

  1. Enjoy the read-a-thon. Looks like you have some good reads lined up.

  2. Good luck! High-five for the Austen. I really want to read People of the Book.

  3. That is a great list! Thanks for joining in and good luck on that pile.


  4. Ooh, Under the Dome. I've been thinking of ordering that...

    Have a great readathon weekend!

  5. Wow, you have quite the listing there. Some serious, heavy reading!
