So, Bout of Books 17 starts next Monday – I signed up, even though I suspect my reading will be prettttyyyy darn limited since I’m moving soon. But I’m hoping to do the Twitter chat on Monday night, and maybe this will motivate me to make sure I don’t skip lunches at work, and maybe read instead of playing the crap out of Borderlands in my down time.
(Also, I’ll be posting on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat for Bout of Books – SarahSaysRead on all three if you wanna socialize during the readathon!)
So, here’s what I’m currently reading – if I get a chance to finish these before Monday that’d be great, but it’s not likely, so they’ll be part of my focus for BoB:
Seven Skeletons by Lydia Pyne – I’m reading an e-galley of this that kind of got approved at the last minute (it came out this Tuesday). It’s about the 7 most famous fossils and while it IS interesting, I’ve only read it in 10-minute little scraps before bedtime so far.
Playing Dead by Elizabeth Greenwood – This book about death fraud is SURPRISINGLY interesting, and the audiobook is really great so far. Makes for a really fascinating, morbid commute but I’m kind of loving it.
And here’s a couple potential reads for BoB – not currently reading, but I might pick them up for funsies:
Saga: Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples – Would be great to sit down and blast through. I kept a stack of single-issue comics and a couple of trades unpacked in the hopes I’d squeeze them in.
The Rise of Io by Wesley Chu – You had NO idea how psyched I was when this NetGalley request got approved. I love the author’s Tao series and this is an offshoot of that. Yessssss.
Alright – let’s be realistic and just call that my complete “pile” (downside of having books packed and reading a lot e-galleys – no pretty pictures of book stacks). What’s your to-read list looking like for Bout of Books?
