My Readathon stack


Wow how did we get to another Readathon already?

This time though, I’ve signed up early and am getting my stack ready.

My goal for the readathon is to get one book read. And to visit some blogs and see what everyone is up to. I’m keeping my expectations low as I’ll be by myself with the littles for most of the morning.  I might try to do some picture- and board-book readathon-ing if they’ll let me. The 3-year-old would be happy to read with me, especially if he’s got his pile of Cars (as in yes, the Pixar movie) books and various other vehicles books. The 17-month-old likes certain books, like those with babies or cats, and some that have trains and airplanes. But he won’t sit still for long so it’s harder with him!

I have way too many books to read! But it’s just so much fun thinking up all those possibilities for my readathon stack.


The Iron Ring – Lloyd Alexander (kidlit)
Strangers in Paradise #2 – #6 – Terry Moore (Graphic novels)

Plus I’m still far far from the halfway point in Drood!

Some e-books

Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins (YA)
The Lady Astronaut of Mars – Mary Robinette Kowai (a novelette – SF)
The Dead in their Vaulted Arches (Flavia de Luce #6) – Alan Bradley (Crime/mystery/YA)
My year of meats – Ruth Ozeki (fiction)
And GAAHHH! my hold on the library e-book of Sarah Waters’ Paying Guests just came in! Ok I don’t really know which one to read now….What would you read first?

Are you taking part in the readathon? What are you looking forward to most?




  1. I haven’t really thought about my goals or putting together a list. I’m not nearly as organized for this one as I was for the April one.


  2. What a terrific bunch of books! I would pick the Sarah Waters book, but maybe later in the day, when attention might be flagging. I’m looking forward to a Chris Riddell book, but Mr. BIP snagged the copy first (but it’s not like there aren’t plenty of other choices).

    Good luck reading with the littles. Turn all the pages that you can! (I’m cheering you on for Team Marquez!)
