My Own Readathon

I missed Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon last weekend. Today, I’m going to hold my own. Silly? Yeah, I suppose, but it’s a long way until the spring readathon, and I really need a weekend to decompress. Don’t know if I’ll make it 24 hours. I’m going to a thing tonight at ASU and there’s a football game which I’ll probably listen to, but I just want to enjoy myself, mostly alone, and engage in one of my top five activities.

Reading List

  • Two chapters of A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin Done
  • A section or two of Poetic Edda. Done
  • A poem or two. Done
  • The Ysenoid – This isn’t entirely a goof-off weekend. I’ll be reading my husband’s manuscript.
  • Finish Dark Water by Koji Suzuki
  • Start Carter Beats the Devil by Glen David Gold
