24-Hour Readathon- A Late Entry

I just heard about the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon yesterday and decided to participate late last night. My stash? I'm reading four books right now:
  • The Cat's Table, by Michael Ondaatje (almost done),
  • Everything Happens Today, by Jesse Browner (3/4 done),
  • Nightmare Alley, by William Lindsay Gresham (2/3 done), and
  • Growing Up, by Angela Thirkell (1/3 done).
So I'm going to work on these books and if I finish something, I'll grab something short out my TBR pile. I'm going to start around 9 am this morning and then I'll just keep going.

I'll check in every now and then with my fellow participants and cheer them on. You do the same if you can- this is a great community event in the book blogosphere! I'll see you back here later.

All of your books are new to me. I hope you have fun!

I thought about just reading books I've started and not finished, but then decided those books were probably at little boring if I put them aside so I better pick something exciting. I hope your books are excellent :)

All your books look interesting. I'll be eager to come back and see what you think of them.

Good luck Marie. I'm curious what your thoughts will be on The Cat's Table.
