Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I love ya, Tomorrow

Have I mentioned that I majored in theatre as well as literature? I may occasionally break out into show tunes. Please try not to hold it against me.

Speaking of tomorrow - starting at 8 a.m. here on the East Coast, it's the 24 Hour Readathon!!! I don't have a set list of books I plan to read. I've read from some experienced read-a-thoners (Is that a word? No? It is now.) that it's good to have a wide selection in case something turns out to be surprisingly awful or you get mired down in War and Peace. War and Peace is not on the agenda for me personally, but if that's your cup of readathon tea....more power to you! 

So here are my starting points for tomorrow. I am reading Northanger Abbey for the Classics Circuit. My post is up on Thursday and I'm only about 50 pages in, so I will probably be reading some of that. 

Library Love (Thank you reserve books that all come in at once...)

The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain
What Women Fear by Angie Smith
The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
Sister by Rosamund Lupton
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstren
(And that is my dining room table...I know that you are thankful not to see 
all of the crumbs under said table.)

My own personal TBR piles that were in the library/office and not scattered in other places throughout the house:

(You can see all of those titles, right? Maybe I'm just getting lazy...)

My kids/YA books for when I get a little antsy and need something light:

But Lindsey, I can't see the titles of these books, you might say.
I know, I know. Let's just say that classics like My Side of the Mountain reside next to Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. There are some fairy tales who are neighbors of Cynthia Voight and The Railway Children live by those intrepid Ingalls girls.

I'm really excited. I will be blogging throughout the readathon, beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday morning! Please check back in throughout the day. Leave me some comments and cheer me on my way. See you tomorrow!

  1. Library is my favorite place to live and have some relaxing and soothing time. You can visit Yukon Gold Canada where people play many new interesting games. I do visit this website regularly because I like their all articles and specially those, which are related to books and literature.
