So I signed up for this 24-hour read-a-thon thing again, because it is AWESOME and I am probably INSANE. On October 9, I will be waking up early, grabbing a giant bowl of Cheerios, and settling into one of the many comfy chairs in my house for some super-awesome reading fun times to begin at 8am EDT (sidenote: Why on earth do we have Daylight Savings for nearly eight whole months? We are a strange nation) and end 24 hours later, though I died after just 20 hours last year and will probably do the same this year!

What I need from you lovelies is recommendations for books! The Read-a-thon is really not the time for 700-page novels or things that are difficult to read; it is for the reading of silly books and short books and books that I might not read if I had anything better to do.

Last year I ended up with a library-based mystery, three kids books, and a super-awesome end-of-the-world YA novel. Oh, and a second round of a delightful music-based audiobook.

Can I do better this year? I hope so! What have you got for me?

    David Sedaris's new book fits this quick to read/short chunks category very well. Plus it's about animals doing silly things.

    Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary. It's on my GoodReads thing if you need more info or if I screwed up the title, haha…

    I REALLY miss Ohio libraries… the JPL definitely does not have the Sedaris book. Or several other books that I want to read. Not that I don't have 20+ books checked out right now… I just want MORE.

    Also, Cari, you should totally read-a-thon with me! I promise that it is super awesome fun times, not leastly because you can honestly tell people, “Oh, sorry, can't do that for you, I'm busy reading.” πŸ˜€
