Coming Soon: 48 Hour Readathon

This coming weekend, June 4-6, 2010, will be the 5th Annual 48 Hour Readathon. Since both of the other readathons occur during the school year, I can't always participate, so I really look forward to a couple of days I can dedicate (without any guilt) to reading! Yes, you live your life in the midst of this 48 hours, but get to plan in LOTS of reading time to boot! Last year I participated and really had a great time. (Here is my initial post from last year.) I actually spent a good portion of the time reading some pretty heavy-duty books, so I didn't get through much, but had a great time in the process. This year I think I'll aim for lighter fare.

The timing of the marathon is a bit flexible, so I'm still not sure what time I'd like to start. You can start Friday night or Saturday morning (obviously), which will be a great kick off to my summer in Hawaii. I'm always in such desperate need for R&R, so this will be an excellent opportunity to lay low and get some valuable reading done. Here's what I think I'll be reading!:
