Read-a-thon Start List

Because October's Read-a-thon only whet my appetite, I'm participating in another this weekend. I have no intentions of being up 24 hours, but I do hope to read as much as I can tonight and tomorrow.

Here's my stack of possibilities for the Read.Read. READ-A-THON:

To Finish:

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

The Unlikely Disciple by Kevin Roose

Graphic Novels:

Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi

Death: the High Cost of Living by Neil Gaiman

Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris Ware

Maus I: a Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman

Children/Young Adult:

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

Burning for Revenge and The Night is for Hunting by John Marsden, the next two books in the Tomorrow series

Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry

Hate List by Jennifer Brown

His Illegal Self by Peter Carey

The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd

The Strictest School in the World by Howard Whitehouse

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell

The Year We Disappeared: a Father-Daughter Memoir by Cylin and John Busby


Run by Ann Patchett

The Spiral Staircase: My Climb out of Darkness by Karen Armstrong

Travels in the Scriptorium by Paul Auster

I tried to add some graphic novels to the mix this time and more young adult books that I've been reading a lot of lately. I have no thought of finishing this stack this weekend, but see these books merely as possibilities (aren't all books full of possibilities?).


  1. You have some awesome books on that list! I hope you enjoy them! I wish I could be doing the same thing, too many things are going on right now!!

  2. You are a true bibliophile! I just love how very big your read-a-thon book stack is! Good luck getting through as many of them as you can.


Thanks for joining our discussion of this book!
