Quiet Please, I'm Read-A-Thon'ing

Img_2231Today is The Hidden Side of a Leaf's 24 hour Read-a-Thon.  Although I intended to read for the better part of the afternoon, life has intervened, and I'm only going to be able to read for a few hours this morning. 

In my stack?  The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million by Daniel Mendelsohn (I made the mistake of stopping just as the second of the author's family members was about to be killed, and haven't been able to talk myself into picking this back up all week), and The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge (highly recommended by one of my favorite authors and hopefully a little lighter).

I will be updating via twitter (see feed at right) as I go.  You can check out the list of others who are read-a-thon'ing today here, and the way-fun prizes that will be up for grabs here.  In addition, if you're participating in the read-a-thon, please come back around noon when I'm hosting my own mini-challenge.
