It is once again time for the 24-Hour Read-a-thon, and once again, I am posting to share my participation at the very last minute (never mind that I signed up eons ago). Anyway, the Read-a-thon is my very favorite blogosphere event, and it’s the first blogosphere event I ever participated in, way back in October 2008 (when Reading and Ruminations was still on LiveJournal).

I am going to try to participate for the full 24 hours, but I usually seem to fade around 11:00 PM Pacific Time (that’s hour 18 or so). There’s also always the possibility for other distractions (hey, it happens).

I’ve gathered up what I think is a pretty good selection of read-a-thon reading material. It is:

-The Idea of Perfection by Kate Grenville
-Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters
-The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
-The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
-The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
-The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
-After the Quake by Haruki Murakami
-Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
-Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
-Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin
-The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer
-The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown

First up will by The Weird Sisters, because I’ve already started reading it (usually unheard of for me, as I like to start the read-a-thon fresh, but I’m not very far into it at all).

I will be updating throughout the day, and I will also be on Twitter throughout the day as well (my username is @shootingstarr7).

See you all bright and early tomorrow!
