Wow, guys! It's quite a different view from this side of the Read-a-Thon! Helping host really provides a new appreciation for all that goes into planning this event.
While I haven't been reading
We have the best volunteers across the board, and Shesten from I Heart Monster has been a fearless leader teaching Heather and I how to pull this thing off.
In the spirit of the Read-a-Thon, I did some snack shopping this morning. I actually cooked a chicken spaghetti so I can nosh on the leftovers for a few days. I also have some Oreos on hand, chips (of course), and miscellaneous goodies I'll reveal later.
My stack is coming along, but I plan to stop by the library tomorrow and add some shorter books to the pile. Here's what I'm working with so far:
- Heading Out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick
- The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
- Wild Nights! by Joyce Carol Oates
- Yonder by Siri Hustvedt
- Proof by David Auburn (re-read)
- Naked by David Sedaris
- Life is So Good by George Dawson
- Watchmen by Alan Moore
- Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall by Bill Willingham (re-read)
I have every intention of adding the following after a library run:
- The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
- The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka
- Graphic novels and middle grade/YA fiction!
Variety in length and subject matter is the key!!!!
