Its Thursday evening, which means that its not only Friday eve, but that its officially less than 48 hours until the October edition of Dewey’s 24 Read-a-thon. Unfortunately, this is the first time in a couple of years that I won’t be fully participating as a reader. But I swear I have a good reason – Sunday is my last race of the season – the Marine Corps Marathon, so it seems like a potentially bad idea to stay up all night reading and then trying to run 26.2 miles…don’t get me wrong – I would try it if I legitimately thought I could, but not likely. That doesn’t mean that I’m not going to read at all – it will be a good excuse (like I ever actually need one) to sit around with my feet up, resting and relaxing.
This year I’m going to read by the proverbial seat of my pants – I don’t have a formal pile of books that I am considering – although I do have my current stack of books from the library – while I’m going to give you titles right now – choices include a police procedural, a book of essays, a YA sci-fi dystopia and a contemporary romance.
