Ann A (readerann) | 494 comments Well, I do have a blog I use for Readathons: blogbysherryann, but you all are having such fun, I definitely want to hang out here as well!

Here is the stack, although I don't expect to get through more than a few of them:

X (Kinsey Millhone, #24) by Sue Grafton The Road to Little Dribbling Adventures of an American in Britain by Bill Bryson Hallowe'en Party (Hercule Poirot, #36) by Agatha Christie The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman French Milk by Lucy Knisley Dicey's Song (Tillerman Cycle, #2) by Cynthia Voigt The Clue in the Diary (Nancy Drew, #7) by Carolyn Keene How to Meditate A Practical Guide to Making Friends with Your Mind by Pema Chödrön Gratitude by Oliver Sacks 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

Like many of you, I'm a mood reader so we'll see what strikes my fancy! I do plan to begin with "X", since that was in my RAT stack one year ago and I still haven't gotten around to it (I know I'll like it because I've read the whole rest of the series).

Lots of catch-up stuff to do the next 2 days, so I won't have an iota of guilt for "checking out" of normal life for 24 hours!

Kate (kathrynlouwca) | 707 comments I love the variety in your reading stack. It has been so long since I've read a Nancy Drew book!

Yes, I have a tradition of bringing out Nancy in the wee hours when my reading ability takes a dive :)

Now, off to hopefully get a good night's sleep. See you all tomorrow!

Ann A (readerann) | 494 comments Well, I didn't get a good night's sleep because I think I was trying too hard (thinking how I MUST sleep so I could stay up for a long time!) Oh well, it just means I won't last for 24 hours.

Wishing everyone a smashing day/night of reading!

Check out my Readathon shirt here: http://blogbysherryann.blogspot.com/2.... It's pretty funny.

Starting off with X
