Well, well, well. Dewey’s Read-a-Thon starts in a few days. I am all booked up with nothing to eat.
Perfect. I’ll have lots of books to choose from, but might pass out from hunger. <sigh>
Not the best plan, I know… but it’s my first read-a-thon, so don’t judge me. Heather made some good food suggestions in an event countdown post. I am headed to the store on Friday evening. Please let me know if you have any food suggestions.
Below is my back-up list, books I have added to my original pile in case I need to switch up. I can’t run to the library or bookstore in the middle of the night. They’ll be closed and I’ll be too sleepy and hungry. *shudders, starts working on grocery list*
UPDATE: 4/27/13 10:00 a.m.
My dad is the best-est. He dropped off breakfast for me. McDonald’s and a Diet Coke!
I declare that calories DO NOT count today!#readathon

Pity the Beautiful: Poems

April is National Poetry Month. I try to read at least 2 books of poems a year.
Blood and Groom: A Sasha Jackson Mystery
Author: Jill Edmondson
Paperback: 256 pages
A lot of this book’s reviews said that it is fast-paced. I have been reading some real turtles lately. I need something to shake the cobwebs off.
Author: John Edgar Wideman

The Iron Duke (Stories from the Golden Age) [READ]
I won an audiobook copy of this book from Galaxy Audio via LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers program. I am going to start my morning with an audiobook as I expect to be frantically trying to “get it together” – after the read-a-thon starts.
The Buddha in the Attic [READ]
Author: Julie Otsuka
This was a last minute library arrival at the library. I feel like one more audiobook couldn’t hurt. Right?
