The Readathon STACK! And a video!

Hey folks! Here with a video I posted on BookTube with a short Readathon overview, and most importantly, my Readathon TBR!

 

Here are the physical books in my stack:
  • The Slaves Have Names by Andrea Cumbo-Floyd
  • Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl (currently reading)
  • The Professor's House by Willa Cather
  • Love Begins in Winter by Simon Van Booy
  • The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld
  • The House at the End of Hope Street by Menna Van Praag
  • A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  • Buffalo Cake and Indian Pudding by Dr. A.W. Chase (Penguin Great Food)

And the e-books that look tantalizing:
  • Miss Buncle's Book by D. Stevenson
  • Ade by Rebecca Walker
  • The Woodcutter by Kate Danley
  • Saga, volume 3
  • Chew: Flambe, volume 4


What's on your Readathon stack?

  1. The Enchanted! Saga! I really wish my library had gotten the new volume in in time for this event because I'm desperate to read it.

    1. My library doesn't have them, so I'm always tasked with BUYING them. But I've decided I like the digital versions for ereader so that saves me a little dough.

  4. I've read the book by Willa Cather and I liked it very much; I want to read more novels by her.
    And well, I still have to choose my books and audiobooks, how exciting, Andi :D

    1. Her writing is just so easy to sink into! And I can't say that of all classics. I want to re-read her entire body of work and then move on to the items I haven't read yet. Have fun choosing your books and audio!

    1. Thank you, Jillian! I have a feeling the Doyle will be a winner. :) Especially as I imagine Benedict Cumberbatch.

  12. I think I'm going to be able to join for most of the day! Gonna read All the Light We Cannot See with the goal of finishing it!

    1. Fantastic, Jennine! Do what you can and make the Readathon work for you!

  13. That reminds me I need to read Illusion of Separateness! Liked The Enchanted a lot - best of luck! I'm technically signed up but doubt I'll read beyond my norm. Like Jennine I'm working on All The Light We Cannot See. If done with that, I may read The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan, which just came in the mail today. It's a book of fiction and nonfiction essays by a promising student-writer who died tragically young - at 200 pages it's perfect for the readathon!

  14. Heather has me wanting to read The Woodcutter too! I'm so excited for Saturday :D

  15. I've got some Sherlock on my pile, too - I even considered A Study In Scarlet but that"s not what I what I ended up downloading because I had no idea where to start!

  17. Good luck with your reading!! Hope you manage to get some books out of the way next to hosting the whole thing!!

  18. I just finished Flambe last night, before the start of the readathon. I think you should read that one. I think it is one of my faves so far ... and not quite so disgusting!!

    And, why did I not think to add some Doyle to my pile?!?
