Readathon April 26 – Book Selection and Updates

I’ve started my Readathon! I’ll be updating this post throughout the day with my progress rather than creating a bunch of new posts because I want to minimize time away from reading.

Here’s the stack of potential books I’ve picked out:

1. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
2. Champion by Marie Lu
3. Light Boxes by Shane Jones
4. Breakfast at Tiffany’s: A Short Novel and Three Stories by Truman Capote
5. Hector and the Search for Happiness by François Lelord
6. Nightlight: A Parody by The Harvard Lampoon – DNF
7. The Book Boy by Joanna Trollope
8. The Library of Unrequited Love by Sophie Divry
9. Smut by Alan Bennett
10. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
11. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
12. Up A Tree In the Park At Night with A Hedgehog by P. Robert Smith
13. Love Is the Higher Law by David Levithan
14. Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling (Kennilworthy Whisp)
15. The Tales of Beedle the Bard by  J.K. Rowling (Notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore)
16. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling (Newt Scamander)
17. A Short Stay In Hell by Steven L. Peck

I don’t plan to read all of these, but I like having a selection to hand of books that are appropriately short and that I’ve been looking forward to. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and Champion I`m nearly finished, so they’re included even though they’re longer.

*I didn’t technically finish The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry during the Readathon, so I’m not counting it, but I was up late finishing it last night which is why (in addition to the alarm on my cell phone being set too low) I was so late starting the Readathon!
