Is it absolutely pathetic that I am starting a blog simply to have a place to post updates for the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon? I hope not, but in my defense, I have been saying that I would start a blog like this for a couple years now and just never found the time or energy to do so.
It also helps that I should be writing a paper for a class right now. Books (and book blogs) are a great way to avoid doing the work I ought to be doing, don’t you think?
Anyway, I suspect the first few entries here will be related to the book binge that is the Read-a-Thon, but I hope to continue posting on the books I am reading. I tend to seek out the classics and “great works” of literature, but I also indulge in fluffy teeny-bopper stuff on occasion. On the side, I am trying to catch up on the great children’s literature that I missed when I was a child. I have high hopes that I will post thoughts on all of these here and I welcome anyone who wants to join me on the journey.
Till then, perhaps you should check out the Read-a-Thon. Nothing like ignoring the world for an entire day to sink into a TBR pile! Happy reading!
