Dewey’s 24h readathon signup and TBR! 

Hi guys!

I’ve been crazy busy the past two weeks so I’ve only managed to finish one book, but I’ve started many others, and I hope to get caught up on my reading this weekend.

I’m participating in my first Dewey’s 24h Readathon, which I think will start here in Adelaide at about 10:30pm Saturday night… Although I need to double check the time zones… Adelaide is a pain in the butt to convert things to!

This Saturday is ANZAC Day here in Australia, when we remember our soldiers and honour them; and I’ve decided to read two books about the Anzacs – Sandakan and The Anzac’s Long Shadow. I’m also planning on catching up on some unfinished reads – the Godfather, Split Second and The Picture of Dorian Gray, if I don’t finish Mr. Gray before tomorrow night. Finally, if I get through all that (hahaha, so unlikely!) I’ve also got my classics club spin book – The Secret Agent and the latest Logan McCrae to read!

I will be working on Sunday morning – from Midnight to 7am, so I will have to get some sleep and do some work during this readathon, but my goal is to squeeze in 10 hours of reading… If I enjoy this readathon, I might even annual leave the next one so I can participate for the 24hours!

To sum up my TBR:

Sandakan – Paul Ham
The Godfather – Mario Puzo
Split Second – Alex Kava
The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde
Anzac’s Long Shadow – James Brown
The Secret Agent – Joseph Conrad
The Missing and The Dead by Stuart MacBride

So, goodluck to all you other readathoners – on the day I will be mainly be using twitter to chat with people – I’m @bookybecksa so feel free to hang out! I will be posting a couple of things throughout the day on my blog, so I apologise if you get a little spamified by me! Any other readathoners? Any hints or tips for a first timer?
