I thought I couldn’t do it. But the postponement of the exhibit’s a many-splendored blessing. Because now I can join the Read-A-Thon hosted by Bethany over at Dreadlock Girl. Wahoo. Read-A-Thon starts on 5th of December, at 6am PST (Seattle, Washington, Vancouver). I’m in the Philippines, so I’ll have to do a little math. Yech. I’m excigamated. I’ve always been a fast reader, haha. So yay, yes? Yes. Anyway, I’m all set. Never mind schoolwork. Bah. The books I might be reading this Saturday will come from this list (of course, it’s subject to change; I might come to my senses and pick thinner books, haha) (of course, I can’t read ALL of them):
- Everyman’s Rules for Scientific Living, by Carrie Tiffany.
- Her Last Death, by Susanna Sonnenberg.
- No One Belongs Here More Than You, by Miranda July.
- Valentines, by Olaf Olafsson.
- Daughters of the Vicar, by D.H. Lawrence.
- Fanny Hill, by John Cleland.
- Proof of Seduction, by Courtney Milan. Crap, I just read it. And it’s good. :)
- Autumn in Scotland, by Karen Ranney.
- Holidays Are Hell, by Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Vicki Pettersson and Marjorie M. Liu.
And, to banish their perpetual “Currently Reading” status:
- A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You, by Amy Bloom.
- My Mistress’ Sparrow is Dead: Great Love Stories from Chekhov to Munro, by edited by Jeffrey Eugenides.
- Once Again to Zelda: The Stories Behind Literature’s Most Intriguing Dedications, by Marlene Wagman-Geller.
