Michelle over at The True Book Addict is hosting a week-long read-a-thon from September 20th – September 26th.
Given that almost all I read for about half of my summer was books for the Ramadan Reading event, I’ve gotten way behind on my other reading!
Right now, I’m also on a self-imposed book buying ban, so I think this is a great time for me to really hunker down and get caught up on reading through some of my absolutely teetering TBR piles. Books that I already own will account for most of my list.
Here’s a tentative list of what I’m going to try to get through this week. I’ll be updating this post as I go along, and will post something at the end of the week letting you know how I did!
