I don’t really do #FridayReads, but I am doing right now. For no good
reason. I’m planning to do another readathon, because of course I am. So I’m
basically just doing Friday reads as part of it, because the readathon goes
over the weekend, and FridayReads is about what books you’re planning to read
during the weekend. Well this was boring.
Moving on. The 48 hour book challenge, 48hbc, runs from the 19th
to the 21st, for 48 hours, and the goal is to read for at least 12
hours in that time. You can start at whatever time you want on the Friday, so I’m
going to probably start as soon as I publish this; so about 7:45 pm on Friday
until 7:45 pm on Sunday. I don’t have a lot of life stuff this weekend, and I’m
still kind of sick, so I might as well read, to finish some of the bazillion
books I’ve already started.
So the books I will be reading. I’ve already started four of these,
because there is something a bit wrong with me.
- In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. I am listening to this
on audiobook, and I have about 45 minutes left. So I’ll hopefully finish that
soon. It’s weird, and really interesting.
- Moby Dick by Henry Melville. I love this. I started it
a while ago. And then I did JuneTopicAThon where my topic was Fantasy, so I had
to put it down a while.
- Burmese Days by George Orwell. Almost done with this
too. It’s Orwell’s debut, and it’s weird, and has no plot, and I don’t know.
- The Golem and the Djinni by Helen Wecker. I’m like 100
pages in. It’s interesting, it’s weird.
- A Girl is a Half-formed Thing by Eimear McBride. This
one I haven’t started yet, it’s my last TBR book for the month. It’s supposed
to be sort of stream of consciousness.
- I also have some comics, if I’m annoyed with reading
normal books. I have volume 1 of Captain Marvel, and volume 1 of Loki, Agent of
Asgard, because I’m a shameless fangirl. It’ll be fun.
