Easter read-a-thon: Ready? Set?

Easter Read-a-thon with Nose in a book

Just a quick reminder to anyone who’s interested that I’m doing an Easter read-a-thon, from Friday morning to Monday evening (ish), and anyone is welcome to join me. I hesitate to say I’m hosting it because I’m not doing any fancy linky or giveaway business but if you want to join in, feel free to add a link in the comments and I’ll come and cheerlead for you at some point!

In a foolhardy moment I gave Tim first pick on what I should read this weekend, which has resulted in a slightly odd combination of books from the TBR. I’m not necessarily going to stick to this pile. Maybe I’ll consider it the starting point. Really, this weekend is all about reading just for fun, so if a book starts to feel like hard work I will probably put it down and come back to it another time.


The sort-of shortlist is:
Dead Air by Iain Banks
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Claudine and Annie by Colette
Room by Emma Donoghue
Small Hands by Susan Hill
Hell’s Angels by Hunter S Thompson

But what to start with? I may have to roll a die. Handily that list is six long…

Happy Easter and happy reading!

    Good luck with your books, Kate. I only know Room and I loved it.

    Here’s my post. Yes, I’m “officially” joining in! http://leeswammes.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/easter-read-a-thon/

    I’m in!!



    Room is good, better than I thought it would be actually, I’d initially dismissed it as a bit of fluff.

    Hi! I’m new here. I like to read. Am I in the right place? 😉


    As much as I enjoyed The Woman in Black, I should probably give Susan Hill more of a read.

    Looks like your boyfriend did okay with his picks. Nice to see Colette in the mix too, I always think of her as a ‘Spring’ author for some reason. Happy reading. 🙂

    Welcome to all joining in!

    Alex He claims he just picked authors or titles he recognised. But you’re right, it didn’t result in a bad list.
