You. Guys. Dewey's 24-hour readathon is tomorrow.
I'm so excited that I might not sleep. BUT I MUST. We on the West Coast are starting at 5 tomorrow morning, and I am determined to actually wake up and start at 5. I've decided to do separate update posts throughout the day, because Blogger gets all What Now? with the formatting when I repeatedly open up posts to edit them.
I'm really looking forward to diving into my pile o' books (not that I'll get to all of them. But options, they're good).
From top to bottom, that's
Black Juice, by Margo Lanagan (short, fantasy-esque stories)
Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell (young-adult excellence from the author of Attachments)
We Have Always Lived in the Castle, by Shirley Jackson (for the short and scaries)
The Haunting of Hill House, by, oh, also Shirley Jackson (for the same)
Maus: I, by Art Spiegelman (classic graphic novel [comic?] that everyone has read and loved except me, but this will soon be rectified [thanks, readathon])
Moranthology, by Caitlin Moran (who I'm told is the British Bloggess and really that's all I need to know)
You Suck: A Love Story, by Christopher Moore (because I've read Bloodsucking Fiends and you can't go wrong with more Moore)
Watchmen, words by Alan Moore, illustrations by Dave Gibbons (because when you want comics for a readathon you might as well include the one people say is the best of ever)
I think I'll start with The Haunting of Hill House, because that should wake me up. Plus it's short and I'd like a feeling of accomplishment as early as possible, honestly.
What about you all? Are your plans (read: snacks) in order? What book will you read first?
