So, the weekend I’ve been looking forward to has arrived! The two older kids are (supposed to be) gone with their mom, leaving me with spare time! Ok. So they’re not gone. Things beyond our control have happened, but I’m going to readathon anyway! Either that, or we’re marathoning Hobbit and LOTR, and the kids will have to suck up the scary parts. lol
There are two readathons being hosted this week.
The one at Death by Tsundoku already started on Monday, but I was unable to participate at that time. Luckily, there’s still plenty of time to participate.
The other is Thankfully Reading Weekend, hosted by Jenn’s Bookshelves
Here are Jenn’s kick-off questions:
- How will/did you celebrate Thanksgiving?
Well, I was going to have a quiet dinner with my husband, baby, and parents – but the group may have expanded to include my two step children. The more the merrier! (But hopefully they can go on their trip still, they really want to.)
- What’s in your TBR pile for the weekend?
I want to work on the first two chapters of The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander
I am buddy reading this with a friend on LibraryThing at a chapter a week, and I’m half a chapter behind already!
I also hope to start and finish Maelstrom, by D. J. Schuette. It’s an indie book published by a friend of mine. I really loved the first book in the series, and am looking forward to this one.
Finally, I hope to finish listening to Becoming Ms. Burton, by Susan Burton and Cari Lynn
- How much time do you think you’ll have for reading?
Oh, please tell me I’ll have lots! Please, please, please.
- What book are you starting out with?
Any of those three will do.
- Are you reading print, ebooks, or audio? Maybe a bit each?
- What books will you be talking about during Thanksgiving dinner? Be sure to keep track of any recommendations you receive and share when you have the time.If you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, don’t worry, this is a weekend for everyone throughout the world.
I don’t know. I guess I’ll see!
