Today is Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon!
I first participated in the read-a-thon 2 years ago with my fellow Flippers, which was held at Libreria Bookstore. I finished 2 books, "Death by Garrotte: Looking Back 3" by Ambeth R. Ocampo and "Johnny and the Dead" by Terry Pratchett, but still haven't gotten around to finishing "Red Land, Black Land: Daily Life in Ancient Egypt" by Barbara Mertz. :P

- "Soulless: The Manga, Volume 2" by Gail Carriger and REM - easy reading
- "George's Secret Key to the Universe" by Lucy & Stephen Hawking - thinking of donating this to a children's library but must read first
- "Dodger" by Terry Pratchett - comfort reading, because Pratchett never fails to be funny
- "All Quiet on the Western Front" by Erich Maria Remarque - need to read this before month's end for the April Group Discussion on The Historical Fiction Group at Shelfari
