I seem to have lost my reading mojo--motivation, whatever, that makes me want to read the books I have stacked up all over the place ready for reading challenges. That being the case, I am going to sign up for The True Book Addict's Winter Respite Read-a-Thon. And, signing up for the read-a-thon should help me with my challenges, right? Because it's supposed to encourage me to read, read, read and therefore I will finish challenges more quickly, right?
Here are the basics:
The read-a-thon will run from 12 am January 23 to 11:59 pm January 29. You can sign up to participate at any time during the read-a-thon and it's flexible so you don't have to read all week.
I'm definitely in. Hopefully, this is just the jump start I need to get my reading going again. I will list the books I finish below along with links to reviews.
****Update: Starting Line--I started reading this morning before work. Am trying to finish up Future Crime by Cynthia Mason & Charles Ardai, eds. (a science fiction short story collection).
1. Future Crime by Cynthia Mason & Charles Ardai, eds. (64 pages to finish the book) 1/23/12
2. Murder & Magic by Randall Garrett (266 pages) 1/28/12
3. Proust & the Squid: The Story & Science of the Reading Brain by Maryann Wolfe (308 pages) 1/28/12
4. The Black Seven by Carol Kendall (275 pages) 1/29/12
Well...the total of four books and 913 pages is a bit less than I wanted. But (knock on wood) it does seem that my little reading slump has been overcome. Hopefully, I'll be able to keep the pace up.
Thanks to The True Book Addict for sponsoring again this year!
