Impromptu Readathon

A few minutes ago I read on Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing that there's an impromptu readathon going on, starting tonight, hosted by April at Good Books and Good Wine. This weekend seems perfect for a good readathon, so I decided to join. The readathon starts tonight and runs until Monday, October 3.

My personal goal for the readathon is to get through 1-3 FOOF books (I only have the long ones left, so they're taking a while) and 2-4 books from my regular TBR shelf. Even if I hit the lower end of my goal, that's still 3 books in 3-ish days, which is pretty good. I'm aiming a little bit low for this readathon because I have school both tomorrow and Monday, and I expect to have plenty of homework. Unfortunately school takes precedence over the readathon (wouldn't it be wonderful if it was the other way around?), so I need to block out time for that.

Books I want to get through:

For FOOF: 
The Goose Girl 
Across the Universe

 From my TBR: 
Brightly Woven
The Lost Saint 
Sandry's Book (or Alanna: The First Adventure - either way)

I might not get through all of these, and I might decide to pick something else up at the last minute. But as of right now, those are what I'm aiming for.

So, what to do you think? Are you up for an impromptu readathon?

I'm participating too! I really need to get around to reading Across the Universe. And enjoy Sandry's Book, I just love Tamora Pierce.

Yay! I hope you enjoy Across the Universe. I finished Sandry's Book last night, and it thankfully lived up to my memories of it. I also finished Alanna: The First Adventure this afternoon, and I agree, Tamora Pierce is great. I can't believe I haven't picked up her books in over three years. I wish didn't have to wait until Monday to get more of her books out of the library. How's your readathon going so far?
