Since this is the first time in EVER that my schedule has even an iota of room for me to read when one of these is going on, I just signed up for the Dewey Summer Reverse Readathon. I have only my regularly scheduled 10 a.m. commitment tomorrow and then an event at 5:30 (8:30 Eastern time–I’m on the west coast), so it’s like the stars aligned just so I could participate. It’s a readathon miracle! (Also a calendar miracle, tbh. Whew.)
Books on deck:
- Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi
- Inside Story: The Power of the Transformational Arc by Dara Marks
- Alex + Ada Vol. 3 by Jonathan Luna
- Ms. Marvel Vol. 6: Civil War II by G. Willow Wilson
If I should finish all of those, I have more, of course. My real plan is to knock out Emergency Contact, which I am already about 3/4 done with and to put a significant dent in Inside Story, which I started last night. The other two would either serve as breaks from all the text or be icing on the finished some books cake.
Okay, I have some errands to finish so I can be ready when the readathon starts, so I should get to it. I will probably check in on Twitter occasionally (@englishist) and then do a wrap-up post tomorrow night or Sunday.
I think that’s how this whole thing works anyway. Either way, updates will be forthcoming.
