Why will you be reading that book instead of another book?
Will you be reading a book you've been putting off?
Will you be reading an old favorite book?
How did you find out about your book or what made you choose to read it?
Do you know where you will be reading?
Will you be reading by yourself or will there be others around?
What are your plans for the ReadaThing Weekend??
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I will probably be reading one of my organizing or productivity books... I have quite a few, but I need a refresher AND a push to motivate myself to get somethings done IRL!!
and you really don't want a list of my organizing & productivity books, it would take up around 10 long posts! I'll post a few titles of ones that I know I need to read again!!
So for this ReadaThing I am planning to 'ReadaHugeThing' and I am sure to be sitting in my favorite reading chair, (as this book is way too big to read in bed, where I do most of my reading), and I am sure to have a large mug of decaf with hazelnut creamer by my side along with my trusty Abby Labby.
I will also probably read my library book club book for November. I can't remember right now the name of the book.
Those are the books so far. Skittle I think you will be able to read for 10 hours during this ReadaThing. I would like to read that many hours too.
I've been definetely been putting this one off since I bought it in a book fair in highschool 14 years ago!
I'll be reading it at home, by myself.
No special plans, it all depends on the weather really. If it's cold I'll read by the fireplace. If it's warm and sunny I'll read on my balcony. But there will be tea, that's guaranteed! :)
I also picked up The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For from the library after hearing many good things about it lately on LT, so I'll be dipping into that as well.
The Open Door by Elizabeth Maguire
My So-Called Freelance Life by Michelle Goodman
Craft, Inc. by Meg Mateo-Ilasco
Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, a Tale of Love and Fallout by Lauren Redniss
Asterios Polyp by David Mazzucchelli
Fun Home by Alison Bechdel
The Compass of Pleasure by David J. Linden
Landscape and Memory by Simon Schama
Idylls of the King by Alfred Tennyson (my December book club read, might as well get an early start)
Plus, there are the dozens of other books that have somehow migrated from their shelves and onto the dining room and coffee tables. As for time, I guess I'd like to read for 10 hours, but with working, I'm not sure if I'll make it or not. Certainly for the 3 hours I signed up for, but... oh well, we'll see what happens!
This is my first Thing/Thon on LT, having only done Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon before, so I'm curious to see if I can keep up here at my favorite website!
I'll be reading at home in the evenings and at the weekend. In the daytime of Friday and Monday I have to work, so there won't be time left for reading.
Not quite sure what I'll be reading - maybe John Scalzi Agent to the Stars and Eliza for Common by O. Douglas and maybe Intent Upon Reading by Margery Fisher. I've got some library books on order, so there might be something there, too.
ETA And what the heck is up with Those Who Fight Monsters? It had a touchstone on the right for a while, but now whenever I make it a touchstone it's for The Inheritance and Other Stories (even down here where it's nowhere near the touchstoned Inheritance). Hmmmph. http://www.librarything.com/work/10504951/book/79272136 - there.
The Log Book thread is here:
Share what you are reading & where you are reading it!!!
I'll be reading Shutter Island to finish off my Halloween reading.
I think I see that of which you were speaking. I am loving the book but have discovered that it is best taken in smaller doses and so have decided to pick it up and put it down between smaller reads.
I will be reading today from Dorothy Eden's Winterwood and then more Arabian Nights followed by Love in a Dry Season by Shelby Foote.
