Opening Meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? SoCal

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I can’t seem to put down NPH’s book, though I also want to dive into My True Love Gave to Me.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I’m not really a snacker, but maybe some chips and hummus.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I have two chatty parakeets, a teenager and a husband. I enjoy vegan cooking, dance for exercise, and too many TV dramas.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? I did participate in the last two readathons – so much fun! And this time I know I’m probably going to throw in the towel early so I can get my zzz.

Here’s my readathon virtual stack:

I won’t be able to complete all of these –but it’s nice to have options, right? I’ll update this post as I go.

Loop by Karen Akins – This book is already in progress since I need to wrap it up for a feature on Monday. Not that I’m cutting it close or anything.

My True Love Gave To Me edited by Stephanie Perkins – A book of twelve holiday stories – surely I can fit in a few of these.

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon – An Outlander fix will certainly do the trick when I’m getting sleepy.

Choose Your Own Autobiography by Neil Patrick Harris – In the audiobook the adventure is chosen for you, since it’s a little harder to flip around in an audiobook. Looks so fun!

Sweet Filthy Morning After by Christina Lauren – This is just a 30 minute audiobook – easy peasy! It’s a bonus novella in the Wild Seasons series.

Are you readathoning too? Let me know what you’re reading!

    I love that they are organized by color!!

  2. Leslie says:

    A color coordinated bookshelf – I love it! Mine has virtually no organization other than read or not read – or the cookbook shelf.

  3. Lucy says:

    I worried that shelving by color would make books hard to find but I’m pretty happy with it overall. And I have a cookbook shelf too, in the kitchen, and arranged by author 🙂

  4. I hope the readathon was fun, Lucy. I def could not do one for just 24 hours. I suck at that kind of pressure. And oooh new Christina Lauren novella…

    What a great read-a-thon you had! Your Shelfie photo is AWESOME – Soooo organised and even colour coded! I took a trip to the book shop in search for a certain book which I could not get my hands on and will post ASAP when I finally get it as it would have been perfect for the read-a-thon. I did however come across Landline! Is it a good read?
