Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon: Let the Games Begin!

Good morning one and all!! It's 7:00 a.m. here in the middle of Canada and that means Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon has begun!!

(If you know me at all you'll realise I wrote this last night, and am probably not at all cheerful right now as mornings are horrible.)

The situation for this read-a-thon is as follows: as usual, I have booked the day off work. I do not have to go to any weddings, showers, or other social engagements, unlike my last few read-a-thons. AND, for the first time in 3 years, I am not in school, so I am quite a bit less sleep-deprived this time! So I'm feeling very excited and optimistic about the next 24 hours.

I chose more books for my read-a-thon stack this time than I normally do, so I'll have plenty of choices on hand throughout the day. (Plus, you know, the thousand other books I own.) Here's what I've got picked out, along with page counts:
  • Feathers by Jorge Corona (graphic novel) (160 pages)
  • Amulet, vol. 6: Escape from Lucien by Kazu Kibuishi (graphic novel) (213 pages)
  • Twin Spica, vol. 4 by Kou Yaginuma (manga) (190 pages)
  • Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin (195 pages)
  • The Sickness (Animorphs #29) by K.A. Applegate (152 pages)
  • Elfangor's Secret (Megamorphs #3) by K.A. Applegate (208 pages)
  • Stop in the Name of Pants! (Georgia Nicolson #9) by Louise Rennison (286 pages)
  • The One (The Selection #3) by Kiera Cass (323 pages)
  • The New Girl (Fear Street #1) by R.L. Stine (168 pages)
  • The Surprise Party (Fear Street #2) by R.L. Stine (167 pages)
