24-hour Read-a-Thon

I haven't been blogging much lately. Mostly because I'd rather be reading ;o). As a consequence, I'm really behind on book reviews. And I'm planning to join in the semi-annual Read-a-Thon this Saturday, too. This is not likely to help the situation any. But, what the heck? It'll be fun. Maybe in between reading I'll put up a review or two. Then again, maybe not... 
Here are a few of the books I might tackle this Saturday:


The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman - I'm reading this one now. I'm actually hoping to have it finished by Saturday. But if not, it's first on my list.

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman - the logical follow-up to The Subtle Knife but I'm not sure I can handle reading them back-to-back. We'll see.


Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning - this one is on my Kindle for iPhone. Reading on my iPhone screen isn't a problem and it might make for a good change of pace.


Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert - I've started this one, but just barely. It has nice short chapters which might make for another good change of pace.


Black Hills by Nora Roberts - I'm putting this one on the list because Nora Roberts can always suck me in.  



Rose Cottage by Mary Stewart - a large print book I've had on my shelves forever. I don't know where I got it, but that large print might come in handy during the wee hours of the morning LOL.


I certainly won't get all of these read. But if I can just make a dent in my TBR pile, I'll be happy. Want to join the Read-a-Thon? Sign up here.

I found Eat, Pray, Love to be a really fast read. I read it in one night when I wasn't even participating in a reading challlenge or anything!

I gave Eat, Pray, Love to my mom as a present. If she's not read it yet or already has I'm going to "borrow it" good luck today!
