Read A Thon!


One of my favorite blogs is run by Casey at the Bookish Type. In combination with Book-Savvy they are putting on  an Out with a Bang Read a Thon. Or is it Read Thon. Whichever. To celebrate I will be attempting to read the following books before the new year.

  1. Hamlet by William Shakespeare
  2. My Antonia by Willa Cather
  3. Border Songs by Jim Lynch
  4. The Winter of our Discontent by John Steinbeck
  5. Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
  6. Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

I encourage all my book loving friends to do the same! Start the year off with an empty library que.

Truer words have never been spoken

Update: I sucked hard at this. The best of intentions right? I only read Bel Canto and My Antonia. But I’m glad I tried, A unicorn, sub zero temperatures and Rocky Horror Picture Show are to blame. Not to mention the entire city of Ellensburg, Washington.

  1. First of all — Aww! I am so flattered you like my site! Thank you!

    You’ve picked out some great books! I enjoyed Hamlet! I also really loved Othello, if you’re in the market for some Shakespeare =) I’ve heard Willa Cather is amazing as well — I really need to read some of her works! Enjoy you reads and thank you so much for joining the readathon!!

    (I also love the photo at the bottom — I’m a book kisser too =))
