Hour Fifteen: Stick to the Plan

What’s your reading strategy for this weekend? Are you reading comics? Novellas? Short books? A series? Or one long doorstopper? I’m personally taking bites out of a few different books I’m in a middle of, plus an audiobook or two.  Are you reading on a theme? From a set TBR? Or just whatever strikes your fancy? Need some inspiration? Check out this post I put up earlier this week.

  1. I had three volumes of comics planned for this event, but I wanted to reread previous volumes in two of the series so I ended up reading five volumes at the beginning with one volume to go. I also have a couple shorter reads (Get Your Shit Together and The Vagina Monologues) as well as longer YA reads from the library (Heartless and Three Dark Crowns). If I manage to get through everything I’ll start The Lesser Bohemians for book club. This is my first readathon in a while that has no poetry so something may end up sneaking in at the end. In short, I’m all over the place.

    I’m going with a #ReadersResist theme because I’m feeling politically itchy! Excited to learn more and read some nonfiction sprinkled with novels and audiobook! I’m reading in a big circle of books chapter by chapter. :^)

    I have a stack of books & e-books to choose from-different genres and styles because I’m a moody reader. I also have audio books which came in handy when I woke up with a major headache this morning.


  4. Katie says:

    I plan to finish as many of my current reads as I can and start some new books. I’m reading mostly paperbacks and also listening to a couple of audiobooks. Most of my books are fantasy genre, but that is more coincidence than a planned theme.


  5. Kris says:

    I am tackling a book group pick plus a couple of books that I’m halfway through. None of them is a short book, though, so I am keeping track of the number of pages I read. Having a ball so far!


  6. I finished a book I was in the middle of, and now am reading two chapters from a book I’m having a book club discussion with tomorrow. After those two ill go on to another book I’ve been dying to read! Enjoy, everyone!

    Well, I’m sticking with shorter books, short stories, and trying to finish the audio book and library book I’m currently reading. No theme, though maybe next year I could.. that sounds fun!


  8. Amy Harris says:

    I’ve got a stack going – no particular order. But I am reading a short story from a few different collections between each one.


  9. iceangel9 says:

    I’m also perusing a variety of materials. I’m reading one doorstop (By Gaslight) and several other books, as well as a smattering of literary mags (Kenyon Review) and an audio book while I’m driving and working around the house.


  10. Lesley says:

    I’m mainly sticking to novellas and short story collections – with a few graphic novels here and there. It’s working well so far!


  11. My “theme” I guess would be feminism and fantasy. I got some books from the library that I’ve been wanting to read including Crooked Kingdom, Fate of the Tearling, and Bad Feminist. I’m also hoping to get a start on Heartless and I may pick up my copy of the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to read during the commercials of the Packer game!


  12. I’m back from a long run to the stores. 75 mile round trip for groceries. That’s the price for getting to live under wide open everything, I guess. But, yea for audio books! I’m reading/listening to State of Wonder, The Underground Railroad, The Invisible Thread. I think I’m going to look up some feminist essays on the web for tonight’s reading.

    I’m reading a series, and hoping to make it through at least four of the 18 books in it. What series? The Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon series by Yasmine Galenorn. 🙂

    Thus far, I’ve been reading for nearly six hours and I’ve finished the first book: Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn.

    It’s been my plan to start this series for at least the week prior to the #24in48 ‘Thon. And so far, my plan is progressing nicely. 🙂

    I have various posts about having finished my first book:

  14. I started out reading a short manga series, four volumes, and then a standalone manga. That got me going and was a huge jolt to my confidence! I just finished a bit of a big one (300 pages) which felt like a big accomplishment in one day. Usually I get distracted and can’t finish things. This weekend has been a huge boost to my reading challenge! 😀

    I don’t really have a theme going. The manga was urban fantasy, animals, then a Greek fantasy. Next I’m due for a fairy-tale retelling.
