Well, here I am with all my good intentions in tow to begin this year's Read-a-Thon.
I'm reading from my father's house where I've been staying for the last 9 days as he recovers from a 9-day stay in the hospital. The weather here is cool and wet - we had some really heavy rain come through the area yesterday evening - perfect reading weather.
I don't have any particular goals for the next 24-hours other than to cram in a whole lot of reading in between whatever needs to be done during the day and night for my father - meal prep, dispensing meds, etc. Honestly, I don't know what to expect and I wonder how many hours I'll make it before crashing.
I have six books here with me and I expect to be changing from one to the other every couple of hours, hopefully finishing at least one, maybe two of them, during the day.
Two of the books are ARCs I received this week:
Rooftops of Tehran - Mahbod Seraji
Saints in Limbo - River Jordan
Two are books that have been in my TBR for a while:
Father and Son - Larry Brown
Case Histories - Kate Atkinson
One is a book I've been stuck on for a few days, finding the writing style a bit tough to handle:
The Glenn Miller Conspiracy - Hunton Downs
The last is the Library of America collection of John Cheever short stories
So here we go.
