My December list went off the rails, as most of my lists will do. Here’s what’s in the queue for December into January.
Revival by Stephen King– To finish two challenges, I need a horror historical fiction. This fits the bill. A elibrary loan. The Two Sams: Ghost Stories by Glen Hirshberg– A reread. One of may favorite books of 2012.
- Sleights of Mind: What the Neuroscience of Magic Reveals about Our Everyday Deceptions by Stephen L. Macknik, Susana Martinez-Conde, Sandra Blakeslee – Library loan.
- River City Empire: Tom Dennison’s Omaha by Orville D. Menard – I really do need to finish this book.
- The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole – The January Gothic Challenge read-a-long.
- Deal Me In stories!
And in January… Bout of Books!
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 5th and runs through Sunday, January 11th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 12 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Other than Dewey’s, I believe that Bout of Books was my first readathon. It’s always a good time and it remains one of my favorites. I’ve been pickier lately with my fun, so I’m really, really looking forward to BoB.
