Dewey's Read-A-Thon: The Line-Up

When I signed up for Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon, I thought that I'd be pressed for reading time. But, now I am proctoring the SATs. I don't know if you've ever proctored this exam, but it's long. Maybe you've taken it? Remember the hours and hours that it took to take it? Well, all that time there was an adult sitting there doing basically nothing. That'll be me tomorrow.

So, I'm going to bring a few books with me to keep me occupied. I have a book club book that I've been putting off, a book that I want to finish, and one that I want to start. This is a good starting line-up. Here's what I'm going to lug into school tomorrow:

So. This is it. I'm almost finished with Nomansland. Actually, I might finish it tonight. I don't really want to read Wolf Hall, so I'll pick it up now and again to make a teensy bit of effort for my book club meeting. But, I really want to read The Scorch Trials and Jumpstart the World. I'm sure to make some progress on these books.

I can't wait to get started, meet some new bloggers, and join in on the Read-A-Thon fun!


  1. I am also participating and hosting a mini challenge.
    I am excited!!

  2. What great timing on the SAT's! I've seen a lot of buzz around Wolf Hall, but I don't even really know what it's about.
    Have fun reading!

  3. Oh the places you will go today
    The people you will meet
    Your books will be your gateway
    Adventure your retreat.

    And if I may, I’ll follow
    As you read and read so more
    Until this day turns to the morrow
    Cheering you on with a loud exuberant roar!

    Even though I am not your official cheerer, I will be stopping by anyway in an your unofficial blogging friend cheerer. Have fun!

  4. Proctoring the SAT can be a real snooze, but what a great opportunity for your reading! And, reading while earning some extra cash? Great combination!
