Read-a-thon: Ready, Set, Go!


I was going to begin the Read-a-thon with Fantastic Stories by Terry Jones (of Monty Python fame), the reason being the fact that it's only 83 pages long. But I think I want to finish Faerie Tale by Raymond E. Feist first instead. Only 152 pages left to go! This book reminds me a bit of American Gods, of The Book of Lost Things, and of the haunted woods atmosphere of Rusalka. Need I say more?

I'll also be on duty for the first 6 hours of the event, so if anyone has any questions, comments, etc., you can e-mail me or contact me on gtalk. I'm untuneric at gmail. To be able to chat with me you'll have to add me as a contact. To do that all you have to do is send me an e-mail.

Good luck to my fellow read-a-thoners!

  1. Thanks a ton for being one of the organizers -- I'm just cheerleading, but I know all of this couldn't have happened without your help!

    Good luck reading today and don't end up like this... http://www.ahajokes.com/crt579.html

  4. Thanks everyone! Chris and Jessi, yes you do! I need to see how it ends before I can say for sure, but so far I think I love this book.

  5. I read Faerie Tale a few years back and found it SO readable! It's a great place to start.

    Happy reading!

  6. I hate to be complainy--but I do have a suggestion (also posted at Deweys). When there is a mini challenge going on, can y'all mention when it will end?? I was really confused about this last time and missed a few deadlines. I just entered the hour 2 challenge, but hour 2 is now over...right?? Sigh. :P

  7. Thanks, Xicanti!

    Trish, you're not being complainy. We'll try and make sure the info is extra clear. The freerice game from hour 2 will be open until 20,000 grains of rice donated are reached. We're about halfway there now, so there's time still.
