The 24 in 48 Readathon is where you attempt to read up to 24 hours between two days and for this round that is between the 27th and 28th January. You do not have to read for 24 hours, any reading counts. You can sign up at 24in48.com to be put into a prize draw and there are challenges and check ins to be entered for more. I am very excited for this readathon. Here are a list of the books I may pick up:
I have never read Jane Eyre but I have had the intention to read it one day as it is a classic that many people seem to love. I was fortunate enough to receive a review copy of the manga adaptation of this book! I think that I may really enjoy an illustrated take on a classic as I love manga and I do love some classics (Pride and Prejudice is my favourite which I listened to the audiobook for). I will let you know what I think of this book!
A children’s classic. I watched the television programme and films as a child but I never read the entirety of A. A. Milne’s tales. I started this book for the Winter Biannual Bibliothon challenge of reading a book that is less than 200 pages.
A mystery involving housewives. That is all I know about this book and I can’t wait to see what I think of it.
I have wanted to read this book for a while. As far as I know it is about an alien invasion of Earth. There seem to be mixed views of the book series but it looks like a quick read, ideal for a readathon.
I may also pick up another one of the books that I started for the Winter Biannual Bibliothon and have not finished. These currently include:
Walk on Earth a Stranger and The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher. I may also start listening to a Shakespeare audiobook, let me know which ones you would recommend!
