Because, well, why not?

I wouldn’t say I’m a sucker for internet-instigated -a-thons, but after several NaNoWriMos, a crack at a 101 things list*, and (now) interest in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, maybe I am. Maybe I’m lemming-like. Maybe I yearn for that sense of belonging that comes from being a part of something…sort of trivial. Or maybe I just have a huge to-be-read pile and am really bored with my current routine. Whatever the case, I’m curious to see how much I can get read in 24 hours at my usually slow pace.

I intend to blog while it’s going on; hopefully, as I finish books and cans of Low Carb Rockstar, and will Twitter some. I intend to cheat a little: Starting at midnight PST (instead of 5am), adding some magazines to the TBR pile, and taking a few hours off tomorrow afternoon to attend the East Valley NaNoWriMo kick-off party.

Wish me luck and feel free to play along at home.

What’s on my list currently:
A chapter or two of The Two Towers
Finish Ripley Under Water by Patricia Highsmith
The Caliphate by Jack Stewart (which I’m supposed to review)
Mary Reilly by Valerie Martin
Now and Forever by Ray Bradbury
Sherlock Holmes: The Hidden Years edited by Michael Kurland
A couple Avram Davidson stories
Read some of Sin and Syntax by Constance Hale
Finish Selected Poems by Christina Rossetti
Plus probably a few Scientific Americans and some gaming materials.
And who knows what else.  If I get that far I’ll be lucky.

Right now, I need a nap.

*Something I need to blog about one of these days.
