Hello, Dewey? Have Back-up list, No Food

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!

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
ISBN-10: 1554884306
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
ISBN-10: 0805011846
Hardcover: 161 pages

The Iron Duke (Stories from the Golden Age) [READ]

ISBN-10: 159212173X
Audio CD

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
ISBN-10: 0307744426
Audio CD

This was a last minute library arrival at the library. I feel like one more audiobook couldn’t hurt. Right?
