WWRead-A-Thon Kickoff

Today begins the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon. Yea for extra reading time!  Obviously, there's no more time for reading than usual, but I'm making an increased effort at ignoring the rest of the world in order to read . . . especially the electronic part of the world.  The read-a-thon runs through Sunday so I am limiting my TV and computer time until then. I need to finish 5 books by the end of the month to keep up with my yearly goal.  I currently have 3 in progress on the Nook, 1 in paper form, and an audio in the car, none of which are far from finished, so I'm going to set my goal for the read-a-thon at 7 books...

UPDATE:  I wrote the above paragraph to post this morning for the start of the read-a-thon.  Then my Nook refused to charge.  The best laid plans... and all that.  I'm relatively sure it's just the charger cord and a new one has been ordered, but delivery takes up to six business days.  This could actually be a blessing in disguise.  It will certainly help my pledge to cut down time on Twitter, Words With Friends, Pinterest and other assorted internet distractions.  And I think there is enough charge left to finish two of the books I've started - less than 40 pages each.  The third book on Nook will just have to wait till the new charger arrives and I'll concentrate more on paper books.  

So here is my reading line-up for Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon:

Books to finish:

  • The Silent Girl by Tess Gerritsen - Reading with Dave - less than 40 pages.
  • All He Saw Was The Girl by Peter Leonard - Come back Monday, June 25th for Blog Tour 
  • Broomsticks and Brownies by Bailey Cates - past 1/2 done - in paperback form
  • Demon Rumm by Sandra Brown - listening to audio in car.
New Books:
  • Stardust by Carla Stewart
  • Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich
  • Porch Lights by Dorthea Benton Frank
  • Jackie After O by Tina Cassidy
There's still plenty of time to sign up.  There will be Twitter parties, prizes and lots of fun.  WWRead-a-thon is sponsored by  Rebecca @ Kindle Fever and April @ My Shelf Confessions.
