Today we're participating in a 24-readathon. As part of the fun, we'll be running a mini-challenge from 2-5 AM. In the meantime, we'll be posting about the books we will be reading throughout the day.
Feel free to comment if you'll be participating. Or just let us know about what you're reading. Talking books is a key part of the fun too!
Shel: Since I accomplished nothing yesterday, I decided I'd go nerdy to start the morning with some Alan Dundes for school.
9:30 AM Update (Shel): On second thought, with my drowsy beginning to the morning, I chose to begin with the newspaper. I learned Ray Browne, who coined the phrase "popular culture" died. He was a professor here in Ohio. See, my awesome state did contribute to popular culture in a major way! We gave it it's name. Take note world!
I have since turned to reading Shiver. It's by Maggie...Maggie Long Last Name That Starts With an S...*reaches for book* Stiefvater Soon, though, I must leave my book fort to venture out and see Ingrid Law, author of Savvy, speak at a local bookstore. I can't vow that I'll be reading the entire time. But my adventure is still book related!!!! Plus, I totally promise to read on the ride there and back. Virtual pinky swear!
Thanks for the encouragement so far, cheerleaders! You're comments make me happy.
Monica? You awake yet. *Knocks on computer screen* Hello? Wakey, Wakey! Books and coffee!
