Congrats to all the readers and organizers and cheerleaders who participated in the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. It looks like so much fun, but I don't know how much reading I'd ever get done. The online stuff that I watched, on and off, would be totally distracting to me if I was trying to read. The mini challenges and prizes available were amazing. I think I'm getting too old, because just like I consider before going out to a party, I have to think how much sleep I'd get and how I'd feel the next day. Plus, I let myself stay up way too late often enough, so the all night reading in the Read-a-thon wouldn't be that out of the ordinary. I do however, like to think of what books I'd read, and how many I would try to get through. Maybe next time!
I've recently completed my whirlwind tour of Europe and history in People of the Book, review to come. Now I am in the spooky season of reading. I am in New England, and some kids who were killed in a car accident appear to be back, haunting people. (The Night Country, Stewart O'Nan.) I read a review last week for this book by Susan and was intrigued. My library had it available so I snatched it up, just in time to add on to the RIP III. There are still 2 weeks left to Imbibe Peril.
