If you’re reading this blog post on January 5th, 2013, that means I’m reading (providing I woke up on time to get started). If you’re reading this blog post after that date, I couldn’t tell you what I’m doing. Sorry, my look-into-the-future skills aren’t working yet this year. All the same, it’s readathon time for The Classics Club!
Confession: I am a readathon virgin. My ever-changing work and school schedule usually keeps me from these events, but I managed to plan things out well enough this time around to participate. I also have trouble keeping on track with anything for an entire day, so fingers crossed that doesn’t happen. Now, I bet you all want to know what I’m reading today…
1. The End of the Affair by Graham Greene
2. Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
3. My Antonia by Willa Cather
4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
5. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
I don’t know if this is a normal readathon load, if I’m way in over my head, or if the readathon regulars are scoffing at my mediocre-at-best goal. But no matter, no matter, it’s plenty exciting all the same. Also, all of these books come from my 2013 TBR Pile Challenge list.
I’ll be live tweeting as I go along if anyone wants to follow @lostgenreader on Twitter. There will be books. There will be witty banter. There will be snacks. There will be coffee. A lot of coffee.
Shameless Advertising: The “WORDS ARE MY WEAPON” necklace that is featured in the picture above is available from bama+ry on Etsy for anyone interested. There are many inspiring copper and nickel options, and you can also have something custom made.
Happy reading to everyone participating in the readathon!
