What's in my read-a-thon pile?

I did the 24 hour read-a-thon last fall, and learned a bit from my self what to read and not to read, and have allowed a lot of options. Will I finish all of these books, oh I know I won't but I wanted to make sure I have enough books and options, so if I get bored with a book then I have other books to read and when it comes to those wee hours in the morning, I have something easy to read that doesn't take a lot of concentration to read.

So I went to my library shelves and my local library and nabbed my self a bunch of books so here's my list (sadly no picture, as my camera is not availavble)

1) The Magician's Nephew
2) The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
3) The Horse and His Boy
4) The Prince of Caspian
5) The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
6) The Silver Chair
7) The Last Battle
(All of the above are by C.S. Lewis)

8) Good Bones by Margaret Atwood
9) Irish Girls About Town - Multiple Authors
10) Further Under the Duvet - Marian Keyes
11) The Secrets of the Fire King - Kim Edwards
(Short Story Collections)

12 ) T4 by Ann Clare LeZotte
13) Jacob's Room - Virginia Woolf

14) The Good Doctor
15) Cold Mountain
16) Crown of Swords
(All Books I am currently reading)

My aim is to stay up for the full 24 hours. And I hope to read at least 4 of the Narnia Books and one of the short story collections. We'll find out if I'm right.


  1. I just realized for some reason I didn't have you marked as one of my readathon blogs to visit! That could have been tragic. I'm adding you to my readathon folder now...

  2. Good luck with staying up the full 24 hours!!

  3. great books! Good luck tomorrow. I'm getting so excited to start reading.

  4. T4 is a great choice. It's very short, but very powerful. Hope you have a fun time! My daughter and I are reading together, but there's no way we'll be doing the whole 24 hours.

    Diary of an Eccentric

  5. I'm hoping to do the entire 24 hours too...we shall see :-)
