High Summer Read-a-Thon: Starting Post

It's time to sign up for the High Summer Read-a-Thon sponsored by Michelle@Seasons of Reading! The Read-a-Thon will start on Monday, 7/22 at 12:00am CST and finish on Sunday, 7/28 at 11:59pm CST (adjust times according to your time zone).  If you haven't signed up yet, there's still time to hop on the link and join in.

Here's my plan of action for the week:
  • Dead Old by Maureen Carter [Picked up for a challenge--had to find a book with a main character who had my name.  Do you know how difficult it is to find "Bev" in fiction?]  (7/22/13)
  • Capacity for Murder by Bernadette Pajer: the newest installment in her Professor Bradshaw mysteries set at the dawn of the 20th Century.  I've been waiting and waiting for this to be available. (7/24/13)
  • Mist on the Saltings by Henry Wade (7/26/13)
  • The Black Stage by Anthony Gilbert(7/27/13)
  • London Particular (aka Fog of Doubt) by Christianna Brand (7/22/13)
  • The Case of the Careless Kitten by Erle Stanley Gardner (7/23/13)
  • The Scarlet Macaw by S.P. Hozy 
  • Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A.  Milne (7/28/13)
  • The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne (7/28/13) 
  • The World of Christopher Robin by A. A. Milne (7/28/13)
  •  Murder by the Book by Eric Brown    
  • Andersen's Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen
  • The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton (only because I need it for challenges...I was uninspired when I tried it a month or so ago....Just picked up the audio version--hoping that will work out better.

    I probably won't get through all these...but I'm sure gonna try!

Seems like you have a great list of books picked out, I hope you enjoy them!

Happy reading!

Bev, I'm doing that same challenge and you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a book with a character named Michelle! I had to go with a common nickname for Michelle...Ellie...and I'm going to read Contact by Carl Sagan. HaHa!

You have a great list there! Thanks for joining me this week. Happy reading!

Michelle: I'm not terribly keen on the Bev that I found. She's not a particularly wonderful character. If I hadn't needed her for the challenge, I would have jettisoned the book by now. But it will be done (before the night's over) and I won't be picking up anymore Detective Sergeant Bev Morriss books (even though there are more).
