Easter readathon

I have a plan. Six days off work, plans on only two of them, which leaves me four whole days of nothing but reading books. Oh yeah.

I thought I would follow up on a suggestion I made a few weeks back about reading on a theme. So in the photo above of the books I plan to read, the eagle-eyed among you may spot a connection. The books are:

The Good Immigrant edited by Nikesh Shukla
The Optician of Lampedusa by Emma Jane Kirby
We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo
The Gurugu Pledge by Juan Tomás Avila Laurel
The Passport by Herta Müller
Bye Bye Babylon by Lamia Ziadé

It’s a little loose, but the theme is war, refugees and migration. I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy all these books, but they’re heavy topics and this is purely for fun, so I reserve the right to change my mind.

Anyone else taking advantage of the bank holidays to enjoy some uninterrupted reading time?
