Ah, another read-a-thon. It’s my first time participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon, and to say that I am excited would be a gross understatement. I had planned to read actual paper books, because reading e-books continuously for such a long time might actually make my eyes melt. But, as it turns out, and at the worst possible time, there is only one book left on my shelf that I haven’t read yet. And I was under the impression, that the readathon is next weekend, until, right about NOW! So I rushed out to get me some books. But obviously, as fate will have it, it’s too late and all the shops were closed. My last resort was second-hand books, you know, the ones at the roadside ‘shops’. I stopped and looked around at a few of those, but didn’t find anything that wasn’t bent or torn and that did interest me. My point being this; I had to alter my reading list quite a bit. Didn’t affect my excitement, though! Not in the least.
What do I plan to read?
1. A library book, the only single one left to be read on my shelf: The Little Drummer Girl by John Le Carre
…and that’s it. Now I’ve got to get me some e-books.
