October 2016 Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon Preview - Part 1

I’ve been thinking about what I might want to read during Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon on October 22, 2016.  I’m totally a mood reader (I can never tell what genre I’ll be in the mood to read), but wanted to whittle down the selections. While I love reading physical books, I focused on volumes that weren't too weighty and wouldn't wear out my wrists. My first cut is: 

 

 

Most Likely

  • The Crystal Cave, Mary Stewart – Historical Fiction/Arthurian Legend (Yeah, I couldn’t wait for the official start of the buddy read on November 1st )
  • Uglies, Scott Westerfeld – YA/Dystopia
  • Cows Can’t Fly, David Milgrim – Picture Book
  • Jalapeno Bagels, Robert Castilla – Picture Book
  • Death Qualified, Kate Wilhelm (Audio) - Mystery
  • Bellwether, Connie Willis (Audio) – SF Novella

 

 

Other things in consideration

  • Three Parts Dead, Max Gladstone - Fantasy (Reread since skimmed parts the first time before it had to be returned)
  • The Finisher, David Baldacci - YA
  • Martian Summer, Andrew Kessler – Nonfiction
  • The Right Kind of Crazy, Adam Steltzner – Nonfiction
  • Coraline, Neil Gaiman – Children’s
  • The Sandman, Neil Gaiman, Volume 1 – Graphic Novel (assuming it arrives in time)
  • Heir of Fire, Sara J. Maas - Fantasy
  • The Rook, Daniel O’Malley – Urban Fantasy

 

Personal goals to follow tomorrow.
