Book Stacks for October 2012 Readathon

This is my first stack for the read-athon. My first stack consists of books I am currently reading (6/8 of them).  This is the stack I hope to primarily read from.    The stack consists of:

1. I Do, I Don’t: Queers on Marriage

2.Memoir of a Debulked Woman by Susan Gubar

3.  Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler

4.  The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

5. Nemesis by Jo Nesbo (on Nook)

6. French Lessons: A Memoir by Alice Kaplan (on Nook)

Next Comes the Stack of Graphic Novels and Kids/YA books.  This stack is clearly the most colorful.

7.  The Annotated Phantom Tollbooth by Norman Juster

8. Howl: A Graphic Novel by Allen Ginsberg and Eric Drooker

9. The Mirror of Love by Alan Moore and Jose Villarrubia

10.  The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

11.  The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland And Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente

Stack 3 is of library books that need to be returned fairly soon. The books in it are:

12.  Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

13.  Ha’Penny by Jo Walton

14.  James Tiptree Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon

The last and final stack is of miscellaneous books that either relate to another book in my stack or  provide a break from the dominant science fiction/fantasy theme of the rest of the books in my stack. They are:

15.  Her Smoke Rose Up by James Tiptree Jr. (short stories by 14.)

16.  Parable of Talents by Octavia E. Butler (sequel to 3.)

17.  The Importance of Being Seven by Alexander McCall (Finally another book out in one of my favorite series)

18.  More Baths, Less Talking by Nick Hornby (Finally another Nick Hornby talks about books book)

I clearly cannot read all of these in 24 hours. I clearly will not lack for choices. I clearly am not trying to shoot myself in the front again by attempting to read large chunks of War and Peace during the read-athon.

    Are you sure we don’t have a copy of #12 around the house somewhere? If so, you could return it to the library.
