Anyway, I'm doing Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon again this year, and here is some intro stuff for you. I'll be back again later when I've read more. Here's the intro survey.
- What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I'm in Saskatchewan, as usual!
- Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I'm really excited about the Sheltered comic!
- Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I dropped the ball and bought zero snacks, so I'm going to have to take a break eventually to go and do that.
- Tell us a little something about yourself!
To quickly rehash my blog gimmick for any new readers: I'm an engineer who loves to read. I live with my sister and we have two cats who will probably show up at least once today. When I'm not reading, I'm usually watching tv, crocheting, making a costume of some kind, or working on my house.
- If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what's one thing you'll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I picked a shorter novel this time, as you'll see, so I'm looking forward to reading more than just one thing this time around.

These are all my own books except one! From top to bottom:
Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto
I've had this on my list of books to read for quite a while, and I've had it checked out from the library for quite a while, too. This is the perfect opportunity to read it. I started it before starting this post this morning.
Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs by Wallace Stegner
This is a book of essays about living and writing in the West, by one of the List book authors I've been wanting to read more of for a long time.
Horror Story and Other Horror Stories by Robert Boyczuk
This is, obviously, a book of short stories, to suit the mood of October.
Sheltered Vol. 1 by Johnnie Christmas and Ed Brisson
A comic about the "pre-apocalypse" which I'm super excited to read.
Rat Queens Vol. 1 by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch
I barely even know what this is about, other than that people love it.
