Mystery Read-A-Thon June 7!

Hello All!

Like many (most?) of you, I don't need an excuse to spend time reading, especially mysteries, but for one Sunday in June, I've got one! On June 7, I'm participating in a Mystery Readathon--12 hours to be spent reading mysteries!!! is the site to go and register for this event. I followed the link to the Dewey's Read-a-Thon (that one is 24 hours!), and I will probably keep my own hours that day--not necessarily keeping to the time outlined on the link above--I'm currently thinking 10 AM to 10 PM, giving me time to exercise & shower before starting. And if the Detroit Red Wings continue to the Stanley Cup Playoffs and they play that day, that game will have to be on while I'm reading :).

I think it'll be fun, and I'll be posting updates here and on Facebook. Join me! Thanks to Jen of Jen's Book Thoughts for leading me to this link, and to a day of mystery reading!

Happy Reading!

Have you started thinking about the books you want to read that day? I have, and I have 1 young adult title, and an ARC of Megan Abbott's new book set aside already!

It will all depend on where I'm at in the schedule, but if I haven't gotten there yet, then definitely Tim Hallinan's BREATHING WATER. I just got an ARC this week.

If I've already finished BREATHING WATER by then, I may delve into one of the Craig McDonald's I bought last Saturday or else Jeff Cohen.

It's definitely going to be a "me" day. I'm reading what I WANT that day, not what I NEED to read! LOL

I added A Night at the Operation, Raiders of the Lost Corset by Ellen Byerrum, Trigger City by Sean Chercover (which, embarrassingly, I haven't read yet)and another young adult title by Robert Parker. I doubt I'll make through all of them, and titles are subject to change, but at the very least, I have choices!!!
