Last year I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon as a Cheerleader. Since I spent so much time visiting blogs and on Twitter, I realized I could have actually been participating and reading in all that time. So here I am taking part in my first readathon. I currently have the flu and will probably have to take care of little people, so my expectations are set low. But I think I can find a way to squeeze a few things in and make this happen.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving – I’m not currently watching Sleepy Hollow, but the show sounds cool and has regenerated interest in this spooky tale.
The Lottery by Shirley Jackson – I missed The Haunting of Hill House read-along in September and have never read anything by Shirley Jackson before, but she seems to get raves as a writer.
The Awakening by Kate Chopin – The Awakening has been on my TBR for awhile and this seemed like a good opportunity to read the story.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me by Mindy Khaling – I’ve already started the audio book and think this will mix things up. I can listen to it when my kids are watching movies or something (I don’t really need to watch Madagascar or Monsters Inc. for the millionth time).
Consumed by David Cronenberg – I’m currently reading this debut by the famous director and it’s not as weird as his movies, but I can’t figure out how I feel about it. Indifferent?

I will have a master post up tomorrow when the readathon starts 8 am EST. Keep checking back to see my hourly progress and to cheer me on!
