Mission #2: Prepare for the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon

Have I mentioned yet that I’m going to be doing the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon? It starts at 8am local Toronto time and runs for the full 24 hours after that, though I’m not sure I’ll make it for quite the entire thing. The only “for sure” commitment I have is to be at games night on Saturday, but other than that, it’s simply up to how much sleep my body screams for!

Tonight, I’ll be cooking food and preparing some snacks, including making brownies for a friend’s engagement party on Sunday (since I know I won’t have time to do it tomorrow unless I’m procrastinating from reading!).

I’ve also come up with a pile of books to start with for the read-a-thon, mostly (but not completely) short YA fiction:

  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • November Blues by Sharon Draper
  • The Lit Report by Sarah Harvey
  • Fasting, Feasting by Anita Desai
  • Iqbal by Francesco D’Adamo
  • The Deep End Gang by Peggy Dymond Leavey
  • Last Chance by Norah McClintock
  • You Can Run by Norah McClintock
  • The Watchmen by Alan Moore
  • Food Rules by Michael Pollan
  • Too Much Happiness (if I haven’t finished reading it tonight)
