I planned to sign up for this read-a-thon, because the logo is totally cute, and hey, I sure can use more reading time. However, what with staff calling out at work, the car needing to go to the shop (the cover for the gas cap was broken – which in itself is very minor, except that we can’t refill the tank – and took two trips to the dealer to fix), and preparing for the Chinese New Year, it totally slipped my mind. When I remembered and checked in, the RAT has started for a few days already, and I thought oh well… next time. But then I noticed that there were 99 participants and I just can’t resist being #100. : D
To tie in with the theme, I hope to read as least one paranormal romance during the read-a-thon. I also hope to read a book or two for the Native American bookbox soon to come my way.
Here’s a list of the books I’m reading now:
The Botany of Desire
An older book by Michael Pollan which is totally fascinating.
The Robber Bride
An old TBR that has been sitting on my shelf since 2007 (!), by Margaret Atwood
Bright Shiny Morning
by the controversial James Frey who wrote A Million Little Pieces. I didn’t read the “memoir” but find his first novel rather captivating. Almost finished reading.
TALLY ON FEB 14
Well, first off, Happy Valentine’s Day!
I didn’t get to read a lot, but I managed to finish The Botany of Desire and Bright Shiny Morning, though I am well into them already at the start of the read-a-thon.
I also managed to read Vamps and the City, to make it a wicked valentine. I rather enjoy this series and look forward to book 3.
