Twice a year the book blog world stops its reading for, well…reading. But not just reading, nothing but READING for 24 hours. It’s Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, a time when chores go undone, family is ignored, and bad TV goes unwatched. Instead book lovers find different spaces to curl up in and read as many books as are physically possible. In theory, I am thrilled for the opportunity to do nothing but read for 24 hours but given that we are in a house hunting crunch I may have over-committed. I’m really hoping my realtor won’t think it’s rude if I read in the car in-between houses.
Here are my reading candidates:
- All the Rage by A.L. Kennedy (loved her previous novel The Blue Book)
- Wonderland by Stacey D’Erasmo
- The Plover by Brian Doyle (his previous novel, Mink River is one of my all-time favorites)
- The Confabulist by Steven Galloway
- The Pearl that Broke its Shell by Nadia Hashimi
- Troika by Adam Pelzmam
