I’ve been trying to pull together a stack ofย  “possibles” for the Read-a-Thon. These are ones I pulled off the shelf yesterday.


  • Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs
  • So Into You by Sandra Hill
  • Julie & Julia by Julie Powell
  • Flesh and Fire by Laura Ann Gilman
  • The Italian Secretary by Caleb Carr
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  • Peacekeeper by Laura E. Reeve
  • Still Life by Louise Penny
  • Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan
  • The Italian’s Inexperienced Mistress by Lynne Graham
  • Branded by the Sheriff by Delores Fossen
  • An Edible History of Humanity by Tom Standage
  • The Guns of Avalon by Roger Zelazny (in The Great Book of Amber)

I know I won’t get them all read, obviously. Also, I may end of grabbing entirely different ones. I figure I can always go to Amber’s bookshelves if I just need a short easy something for a break. Also, I’ll read a little with Amber, but I’m not sure what we’ll be reading by then. I told her she can stay up late if she’s reading with me and I’ll post anything she reads, too.

I think my husband is finally realizing that I actually mean that I’m taking a whole day to just read. Or at least as close to a whole day as I can. He’s planning on having our friends over for games that night instead of Friday so he’ll have something to do.


  • LOL–and will you just hole yourself up while the company is over? ๐Ÿ™‚ My husband will be out of town this weekend and while than means no interruptions it also means no one told hold me accountable for actually staying up!

    Julie & Julia I think would be a good book to read! It’s better to have too many books in your stack than not enough.


  • Carol

    Trish – I figure the boys’ll play Axis and Allies or something else I don’t usually play. They’ll have snacks I can share, stay up late. I can read on the couch while they play their game.

  • Glad to hear you’re participating. The Girl and I will be over Serena’s and the men can play video games while we read. And I’m sure The Girl will venture away from the books for a while like she did last time. Thank goodness she’s feeling better because I really wanted to participate.

    I pulled out about 10 books last time and only read 1, but it’s nice to have options. This time I’ve snagged my daughter’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid books to use when I need something light.

    Have a great time!

    Hee Hee. I think my husband is realizing the same thing. This weekend there is a sale on the sofa we’ve been looking at for months and last night I told him to go buy in on Saturday. He couldn’t believe I wasn’t going to go with him ๐Ÿ™‚
