Tomorrow, Dewey’s 24-hour readathon is going to break my reading slump.
I guess it isn’t a slump, really—just six weeks in which I only read three books, two of which were audio. I just haven’t wanted to pick anything up since I finished the last batch, and for the most part I’ve actually been fine with it, doing crosswords on my phone in a lot of the time that I normally would have been using to read. But I have several things lined up now, and I’m ready to get back into them.
I have also decided that, for me, the 24-hour readathon is going to take on a slightly different definition. Rather than attempting to read for 24 hours straight, I’m going to consider it 24 hours in which I read as much as possible instead of doing normal weekend things. And with that in mind, these are the books I’m going to pull from:
Warbreaker, by Brandon Sanderson
Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life, by Yiyun Li
The Natural Way of Things, by Charlotte Wood
Free Will, by Sam Harris
The Fifth Child, by Doris Lessing
