Books to read

These are my stacks of books, standing by, waiting for the read-a-thon, hoping to be chosen.

I don’t intend to read all of them in these 24 hours, but I would like to make a significant dent (maybe half? Is that outrageous?).

Each of these stacks is from a different place; Stack 1 (left to right, from back left) is books I own; Stack 2 is library books; Stack 3 is books I borrowed from a friend; and Stack 4 is books I bought at the local, independent bookstore last night. The existence of this final stack is due in part to the library’s lack of books I wanted it to have; the first of two series that I wanted to explore.

I’ll be posting here quite frequently this weekend, as part of the read-a-thon. This is FYI, in case you were wondering. I haven’t figured out what book I’ll start first; that’s a bit of a problem. The start is just a bit over one hour away (10 a.m. Central)!
