Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon 2012

Today kicks off the 2012 Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon hosted by The True Book Addict. It's also my first Read-a-Thon ever, so I'm pretty excited.

Here's my list for the challenge:

A Personal Matter by Kenzaburō Ōe

A Charmed Death by Madelyn Alt

A Mid-Summer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

I've already started the first three and I'm reading Shakespeare for Reading Shakespeare . I'm already one act behind and I participated in the discussion yet. I haven't started 1Q84 yet and I doubt I'll finish it by the time the Read-a-Thon's over, but I'd like to at least get a head start on it. I also need to start Gone with the Wind for the Gone with the Wind Read-a-Long.

I'm not sure how far I'll get, but I'm definitely looking forward to trying!


  1. I'm honored that my read-a-thon is your very first. *blushes* You have a great list lined up. Just remember above all else to have fun. Be sure to stop by the blog and check out the mini-challenges, giveaways, and the prize page.

    Happy Reading!

  2. Best of luck with your first readathon, I've read the Oe & am reading 2nd book of 1q84 at the moment, also did Shakespeare at school, leaving the only one I've no knowledge of being, A Charmed Death by Madelyn Alt, which I'll go & check. Enjoy it & don't worry about what others do.
