Read - a - Thon Pile

Thursday, October 22, 2009

I came upon Dewey's Read-a-Thon so recently that I haven't put much thought into what I was going to read, honestly I only had 5 days to figure it out from the day I learned of the thing so this is what I have so far. I have two books that I have already started but can't think of any good reason not to finish given this wonderful opportunity those are:

* A Wife's Guide to In-Laws (and if my in-laws read this I received this book to review I did not buy it, I love you guys)
* The Songbird in My Heart
* A Year in the Merde

Then on to other books I have on my list that have not been started yet:
* Critical Mass
* Rusty
*Difficult People
* Grey Apocalypse
*Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
*Backpack

And now to a special category see I have a 2 year old son who will be with me 99% of the day on Saturday. He sleeps well at night and takes a good nap but the rest of the time he will be mine to entertain luckily he loves books so on top of the collection of books he already has we went to the library today and picked up a ton of children's books for me to read to/with him when he is in need of love and attention throughout the day. It's a win/win I get to keep reading and he gets new books to enjoy while I read them out loud to him. That list is:

* Dinosaurs Before Dark
* Tales of Oliver Pig

* Mr. Putter and Tabby Feed the Fish
* Dinosaur Time
* A Tree is Nice
* Jenny Giraffe Discovers the French Quarter
* Jenny Giraffe and Streetcar Party
* Clovis Crawfish and the Patit Papillon
* Clovis Crawfish and his friends
* The Sweetest Fig
* Where the Wild Things Are
* Stellaluna
* The Lorax
* The Gift of the Magi
I think these will keep me busy and if we run out of children's books there are shelves of them in his room we can raid, there are also plenty more adult books laying around so I am not worried about getting bored or reading everything I have in the house. This list is just a place to get started.

1 your two cents:
