Final Preparations for the 24-Hour Read-a-thon

Dewey 24 hour readathonWith about 10 hours to go until the official Read-a-thon start, I’m just about ready. I’ve made a few last minute additions to my reading list and now have 11 books, one audio book and my uni notes to keep me occupied.

Readathon booksMy final list includes:

  • Nelson Mandela’s Favourite African Folktales (audiobook)
  • My Story: Who Am I? The Diary of Mary Talence, Sydney 1937 by Anita Heiss
  • Battlefield by Alan Tucker
  • Conspiracy 365: February by Gabrielle Lord
  • A Girl Like Me by Penny Matthews
  • Australian Classics by Jane Gleeson-White
  • Below the Styx by Michael Meehan
  • Macquarie Pen Anthology of Aboriginal Literature edited by Anita Heiss and Peter Minter
  • Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
  • Reading by Moonlight by Brenda Walker
  • Willie’s Chocolate Factory Cookbook by Willie Harcourt-Cooze
  • Laughter is the Best Medicine by Jean-Paul Bell
  • Uni notes

It seems all the other bloggers are putting almost as much planning time into their Read-a-thon snacks as they are in their booklist. We’re out for dinner tonight with friends before Read-a-thon starts then we’re out again for a BBQ lunch tomorrow. Since I’m still trying to work off Easter chocolate indulgences, I think I’ll stick to cups of tea to keep me going in between these major meal breaks.

I can’t wait to get started, although I’m already having trouble working out which of my books to try first.

    Excellent pile of books! :)Goodluck with your reading. And I agree, this soon after Easter it probably isn’t wise to snack too much whilst reading.
