Readathons and best-laid plans

Hurray!  Dewey's Readathon is Saturday, October 9, starting at 7am (I live in Chicago's timezone, all start times are based off 5am Pacific).

Fail!  I have to work 8 hours Saturday plus I think at least two of my family members are going to make an appearance that morning to see what's wrong with my dishwasher.  AND I work at 11am on Sunday for a friend.

Bye-bye, reading time!

I'm still going to Readathon, though, just not as much as I would like.  I plan on starting on Friday evening and reading for a while, catching some reading time Saturday afternoon/evening/night, and maybe a bit on Sunday morning before I go into the store.  I'll stitch it all together and call it a Readathon.

I'm not going to plan my reading beyond the idea that what worked well last fall will probably work again, but I will be finishing books that have lain around disgracefully "in progress".  Books on the Readathon shortlist are:
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (I stopped because of the awful realization that there are no more Millenium books....if I finish the book, no more Lisbeth to look forward to)
Matterhorn (half-way done, then I got distracted)
Revolutionary Road

Let's see how far I get - I have loads of half-finished books laying around!


  1. Good luck on the Readathon! I have the first two Larssen books on my list for tomorrow! (and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" is on standby, in case the same thing that happened to me with the "Hunger Games" series" happens again - I won't have to wait to run out to the bookstore to pick it up!
