24 Hour Read-A-Thon Approaches

It won't be long now. In about 8 1/2 hours, the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon will begin. I will try to update fairly regularly, about every couple of hours. My 10 year old son will also be joining me in the Read-a-Thon. We're going to compete to see who can read the most pages - I can tell you right now that unless he flakes out on me, it'll be him. Anyway, here are the books we have planned for tomorrow.
Traci's Stack:
  • The Tenth Case by Joseph Teller (this is in progress)
  • The Sea of Monsters (audiobook) by Rick Riordan (also in progress - only about 25 minutes left)
  • The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
  • The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo (I'm reading this aloud to my daughter - I don't plan to finish this, just read some to her throughout the day)
  • Dating da Vinci by Malena Lott
  • The Ark, the Reed, and the Fire Cloud by Jenny L. Cote
  • Rune Warriors by James Jennewein
  • Surviving Antarctica by Andrea White
  • Savvy by Ingrid Law

Brandon's (very tall) Stack:

  • Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp
  • Salamandastron by Brian Jacques
  • Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel adapted by Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin
  • The Keys to the Kingdom by Garth Nix
  • The Ruby in the Smoke by Phillip Pullman
  • Warriors: Eclipse by Erin Hunter
  • Left Behind The Kids: Book Two by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye
  • Everest Book One: The Contest by Gordon Korman
  • Guardians of Ga'Hoole: Exile by Kathryn Lasky
  • Wild Magic Book One: The Immortals (audiobook) by Tamora Pierce
  • Superman: Strange Attractors by Gail Simone
  • The 39 Clues by Rick Riordan (in progress)
  • The Titan's Curse (audio) by Rick Riordan

Well, it's getting late, so I should probably get some rest - got a big day ahead of us tomorrow. I hope you'll stop by to see our progress and cheer us on tomorrow!!
