Eagerly Anticipating The 24 Hour Read-a-thon


I could begin with Book Three of The Century of Giants trilogy by Ken Follett, which Dutton sent me to review before its publication on Sepetmber 16, 2014…


Or, I could read the three novellas by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya which “tell disquieting and extreme stories of family that for almost two decades were censored by the Russian government,” sent to me this week from Penguin.


Or, I could finish this book by Renee Rosen which tells of Marshall Fields’ life, because it brings me so utterly back to my youth in Chicago.

But no matter which book I choose, it will be a glorious celebration of Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon, an event I remember celebrating with her before she passed away many years ago.

In between reading, and writing comments for those readers on Team Hughes (as I did sign up for “cheerleading”), I will lead a discussion for our book club on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. And I will undoubtedly write what will prove to be a long string of posts for the event.

Happy reading, fellow ‘thoners.

    1. I love to spot a familiar name, too. Anymore, it seems that this book blogging world is filled with more people I don’t know than those I do. So many have dropped off since 2006, and so many more have arrived. Glad to be readingw with you, Brona.


    1. Heidi, so glad you’re participating! I suspect you’ll love it, and try to be a part every year from now on. Although hings do tend to get in the way from year to year. Invariably, I have other commitments as well as the ‘thon.
