Reverse Readathon Post #1

The summer readathon I posted about on Wednesday is officially here!

I don't anticipate that I'll be posting a bunch of photos here, but you can definitely find a bunch of updates on Litsy (I'm @twohectobooks).

This readathon, I'm selecting from the following books:
  1. The Young Manhood of Studs Lonigan by James T. Farrell (Yes, I am really reading this far ahead of what I've posted right now and it's kind of awful. Anyway, I started this a while ago and I'm not sure if I'm going to finish it during the readathon or just get closer to the end. It's a slow read and there are over a hundred pages to go.)
  2. Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare (Making an effort to read this play before seeing it performed in a little while. I just started reading it last night but I'm about a third of the way in because it's a short play.)
  3. The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch (My sister told me that she wants this book back so that she can read it soon, so I figure I might as well just try to read it right away. I haven't started yet but this is the book I plan to focus on most during the readathon.)
  4. Sisters in the Wilderness by Charlotte Gray (Non-fiction again, finally. I have my doubts that I'll get to this one. I'm not allowed to start it until I've finished both Titus Andronicus and The Hangman's Daughter.)
And here are my responses to the opening survey:
  1. What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
    Saskatchewan, Canada, as per usual!
  2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
    I'm not looking forward to any particular book. What I'm most looking forward to is speedily finishing at least one book.
  3. Which snack are you most looking forward to?
    The Real Fruit gummies that I bought, which I have already consumed, haha.
  4. Tell us a little something about yourself!
    Ummmmm I'm never sure what to put for this question. I like to read?
  5. This is our VERY first Reverse Readathon! How does it feel in your time zone?
    I actually love this. The typical readathon schedule means I have to get up early on a Saturday morning. This schedule means I got to come home from work, eat supper, and then get straight down to a Friday evening of reading, which is pretty much my ideal Friday evening. And then I get to have a leisurely Saturday morning and afternoon of reading. Honestly this is preferred for me.
