Tentative Book List for Readathon

On the floor of my room is a nice stack of possible books to be read during tomorrow’s 24 hour read-a-thon.  If I am reading the website correctly, my time zone (EST) begins the read-a-thon at 8am.  I don’t plan on staying up into Sunday, but I do plan on reading all day tomorrow with little breaks for blog posts and visiting other blogs, and eating, and showering, etc.

Without further ado, my book list, in no particular order:

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Janissary Tree by Jason Goodwin

River Secrets by Shannon Hale

Boo by Rene Gutteridge

The Echo Maker by Richard Powers

When Autumn Leaves by Amy S. Foster

Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

I also may or may not be finishing up Sarah Rayne’s A Dark Dividing.

Edit: Forgot to add the button!

  1. Ooh, you’ve got some good ones on that list!!! I really enjoyed Boo, Ella Minnow Pea, and The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie — the only three from the list I’ve read.

  2. Great list! I loved Ella Minnow Pea and it will be a quick read. So will The Hunger Games. Have fun tomorrow; the readathon is always a blast!

  3. I love River Secrets and Shannon Hale in general. I’ve also go Ella Minnow Pea in my pile. Happy reading!

  4. Ooh, Ella Minnow Pea is great, and I also really liked The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.

    Also: why is everything happening this weekend? Here in NYC it’s Open House New York (cool places, some not normally open to the public, are open for free) and Conflux (quirky art/music/walking tours – e.g. one year I went on a walk that was focused on service entrances of buildings, and last year I went on a traffic-cone-viewing walk and a sound-walk where we were supposed to sit in a place and listen, then write, then walk from one place to another, noticing sounds, then write, etc.). And of course there’s the Readathon! If it were going to be cold/rainy, the Readathon would win for me, but it’s supposed to be super-nice out, so I think my weekend will involve more walking/outside-time than bookish-time.

    Happy reading!

  5. Hi! I’m new to the Book Readathon, so didn’t put in much planning unfortunately. Hopefully I find interesting reads at my library anyway!

    I like the variety you have there, and I’ve tried to bring in a bit of variety into my list as well. Probably will re-read an old book too.
