TSS: Preparing for the Readathon!

Next weekend I’m participating in the 24 Hour readathon, the bookish event I look forward most to in the fall. Fall brings cool and crisp weather, perfect for spending indoors, curled up with a stack of great books. I have my snacks lined up, including my emergency middle of the night cookies. I have yet to pick my reading line-up but that’s usually the easiest part of the process!

My boys are planning on joining me, mainly because they want to take part in the food but I’m sure they’ll do a little bit of reading as well.

I’ll be spending the rest of this four day weekend preparing for Week 2 of Murder, Monsters & Mayhem. If you haven’t signed up, there’s still time! ¬†Also, if you have a horror/ thriller post, remember to link it up!

Are you joining in the readathon next weekend? What are you planning on reading?

Tentative reading pile:

 
Print books:
Flesh & Bone by Jonathan Maberry
The Diviners by Libba Bray
Others by James Herbert
The Other by Thomas Tryon
Breeding Ground by Sarah Pinborough

eBooks:
The Wrong Goodbye by Chris F. Holm
Survivors by Sophie Littlefield

    I just realized today that next weekend was Readathon! We have kids sporting events all day Saturday, but I’m thinking I might go hide and do some reading in the evening. At least it will be more reading than I normally get!

  2. I have most of my books picked out for next weekend, but still haven’t decided on snacks. There will definitely be some middle of the night cookies though :)

    still not sure I’ll be free but I love readathon weekend

  4. My stack of books is a little…large. I think I have 10 so far and I have to add more including The Diviners! I just know that i need to have a lot of choose from or I will spend all day looking at my shelves for other books!

  5. Now I want some cookies! :-) Maybe I’ll just make a cake instead. I’ve just finished picking up the last of my read-a-thon pile today. I can’t wait. I’ll be sure to come back and cheer you on during the event!

  6. This will be my first read-a-thon. I definitely need to shop for some snacks. I have a library book sale Saturday, too, which I will be stopping at briefly- at 9 am, and the read-a-thon starts at 8 am. Decisions, decisions. I’ve started putting my books together, with a few shorter reads, I want to put at least six books together… just in case I’m able to get through them all! :) Have fun!
