I signed up for this a while ago, assuming that I’d be completely free during the event. Turns out I’m going to be sitting in the back of a small car for approximately 6 hours, and running around DC with cousins I’ve never met before for the rest of the time. But I will make this work.
After a 4 month pause, I’m actively reading Les Miserables again, but I think that I’ll take a break, because 700 pages of deep, complex, beautiful and very small text isn’t the best choice for something like this.
Instead I’m hoping to read 2-3 books. When I have peace and quiet (ha!) I can read up to 5 pages a minute, so theoretically I could read a 300 page book in an hour, but I have a feeling that won’t be happening. Despite the fact that I’m only planning on 2-3 books, I can’t seem to narrow it down! Here’s a handful of the stuff I’m considering:
The Frog Princess by E.D. Baker
Frogged by Vivian Vande Velde
Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks (reread)
Of Triton by Anna Banks
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Persuasion by Jane Austen
Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mlynowski
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Insomnia by J.R. Johansson
Prophecy by Ellen Oh
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
That Time I Joined the Circus
I’ve got a good mix of classics, review books, and fun reads to choose from, I just don’t know what kind of mood I’ll be in. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! And if all else fails, there’s always Les Miserables (:
I won’t be updating here, but I will be updating on Goodreads and/or Twitter when I have the chance with the horribly generic #readathon.
