Read-a-Thon October 2012
As you might already know from my read-a-thon post yesterday I am very ready, and very excited for this read-a-thon! I have a mix of short stories, graphic novels and fast paced fiction to get me through the day. I also have a pinterest board set up dedicated to my favorite reading music (including genre stations for science fiction, fantasy, romance, historical and post apocalyptic) and another one set up dedicated to my favorite short stories (including one fantastic pod cast reading of a bayou fairy tale and a full cast radio drama for my favorite geek post apocalyptic story “When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth”). Finally I also have all new buttons that I made for this read-a-thon. Not as good as the ones from eons back but they are pretty.
To start the day off I’m going to be reading Persepolis 2 and am planning on cycling through my short stories and fiction from there. I’m pretty excited. Hope you all have lots of fun reading today!
I’m really looking forward to starting The Knife of Never Letting Go.
My husband makes very awesome popcorn in a variety of flavors. He has promised to make up a batch or two today.
I have been blogging for nearly 15 years, and have been book blogging for nearly 8. I mainly blog about speculative fiction these days with a side dose of fairy tales. My tumblr is dedicated to deconstructing fairy tales.
This time I am a lot more structured and organized. I’m planning on rotating my reading a lot more to keep things fresh and I have created dedicated soundtracks to the day that I’m really enjoying listening to.
I am now about 50 pages into Persepolis 2 and hope to have it finished before the morning is out. I have finished my first cup of tea and am ready to dive back into reading! But first, a mini challenge.
Recreate the Cover
I have decided to recreate The Knife of Never Letting Go because that was easiest.
I have finally finished my first book of the read-a-thon, Persepolis 2. Next up is a short story to cleanse the palate and then diving in to The Knife of Never Letting Go. Also, lunch at some point.
I have not updated in hours! But I’m still reading! I managed to read another book Battle Angel Alita, Volume 1: Rusty Angel and two short stories and made a dent in The Knife of Never Letting Go. Then we had dinner guests and there was cooking, entertaining and cleaning to do before getting back to reading again. I thought it was past time I updated! I’m not sure if I’m going to make it the full 24 hours, but I’m on my third cup of tea and am ready to dive back into a short story so don’t put me down for the count just yet!
