Read-a-Thon: It begins again.

Good Morning Read-a-Thon'ers!
It's 6 am and I just settled in with a cup of coffee (pre-loaded the coffee pot, yes I did!) and two big stacks of books. I'll be lucky to get one or two read all day, but I need CHOICES.

This first stack is my library stack, minus a few sewing books. There's a nice mix here of YA, nonfiction, mystery and crafting books. Chocolat and the Nora Roberts are both large print so that hopefully I can read while I ride the bike for the 100 Mile Challenge.

The ones in this stack are my personal books. I thought I'd throw in a couple romance novels in case the mood struck, plus there's In the Woods.

I know everyone else posted their stacks earlier in the week, I just got around to taking my pictures last night. I'm hoping to get an hour or so in before the boys wake up and join me.

Game ON!

  1. Lisa, The Hunger Games is calling your name! Pick that one up first!

  2. I'm loving your YA selections. Enjoy your readathon and happy reading!

  3. Hi Lisa: I'm a cheerleader for the first time! You're in my first group to cheer for, so, for hour one: congratulations on signing up, and I hope the next 24 hours are filled with books, and people talking about books for you! Mostly, lovely reading time for you. I like your book choices, In The Woods is really good, I've heard great things about The Hunger Games, and read Hunting Grounds! I love Patricia Briggs.

    One day I hope to be able to participate to, but my children are too young to let me have 24 hours to read....

    I hope you are enjoying being part of world-wide reading event. It's awesome, and I think you are too for being part of it. I love how you are going to bike ride for an hour and keep reading, doing two challenges at once! lol I'm so thrilled to get to cheer you on. I'll be back!

  4. Wow, you are read-a-thon-ing and 100 mile bike riding?? You are a super star!

  5. Such a great morning here in South Alabama, just the perfect time to grab that cup of coffee and read, read, read!!! So keep up the great reading and enjoy!!! Wow, what a huge stack of books! You must be quite a speed reader.
    the Transcendentalists team!

  6. Sounds like you are well prepared! Good luck and happy reading, Lisa!

  7. I hope you have a lot of fun with the read-a-thon!

  8. Hmm, that Bermaduez Triangle one looks interesting. Have fun!

  9. Two words stick out--Chocolat and Hungry. :) And I just ate!!

  10. Loved the Dave Ramsey book. Hope your reading is going well!

  11. Great list!!! I just finished The Hunger Games. Read. It. Now. Seriously.

  12. Eep. Read-a-thonning with the boys around! I might do it in April, but I'd be hoping N takes them away somewhere!
