48hr Read-a-Thon starts now!



Do I need another reading challenge?

Um, have you seen my to be read pile? (Joy directs your attention to her Shelfari widget on the right).

This weekend I plan to knock one of those titles off the shelf. Not sure which one yet (I'm leaning toward Missing Mabel), but if I put my mind to it, I can finish one of 'em in 48hours and still spend some quality time with the boys.

Technically, I should call that Shelfari widget my to be read immediately pile.

Because the truth is, the stack of books on my nightstand dwarfs the list in my sidebar. This week I took a count. There are 58 unread novels in this house waiting for my attention (59 after I receive the Amazon order I placed Monday). I have an additional nine books on my iPhone, one PDF in my mailbox, and two galleys waiting for me at Netgalley.

So yes, my friends. I need another reading challenge...or an intervention.

Care to join me? Visit the Unputdownables blog. Don't you just love that name?!

  3. You're definitely more ambitious than I! My stack of reading is beginning to lean... but my stack of pending WIPs is much more ferocious for attention.
