Maria (aminowrimo) | 462 comments Don't faint, please!

Half of them are short books. The others are really easy reads-- I've got two plays, 9 short story collections (fairy tales), 14 children's books, and then there's one entertaining travel account/love story, one classic my mom read to me ages ago, and then one memoir which I highly doubt I'll actually be able to read. So everything should be pretty relaxing if I don't get restless.

I'll be reading all day on the 16th (mostly, I'll hopefully get to meet with a friend in the airport). We also get 4 extra hours that day, and it's the airport, which means I'll be reading. On the 11th and 15th my brother has plans to sit and use the internet, so I'll have those days too. It's all doable... I hope.

You're totally right, Mikki!

Good one, Mikki!

Nothing short of impressive, Maria. Have I told you recently that its good to see a young person who likes to read?

Welcome to You'll Love This One. Joining a TBR Toppler is a great way to get acquainted with everyone as there is a lot of kibitzing and bantering going on.


message 57: by Maria (new)

Maria (aminowrimo) | 462 comments Not recently, but I do think you told me at the beginning that you were glad I liked loved reading.

Welcome, Joe! I think you're the first guy in a toppler so far? (Correct me if I'm wrong, ladies). I'm Maria, 17, love reading, and I'm currently traveling for 15 months with my family, so if you hear me moaning about so-and-so random location, that's why. XD

Amber | 589 comments I'm joining the Topplers!

That's great, Joe.


message 64: by Maria (new)

Maria (aminowrimo) | 462 comments Nice, Joe! He'll definitely learn to love reading!


message 65: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (LisaSpoot) Toppler here! I'll be reading something old: The Great Gatsby

That's a great choice, Lisa. I read it in JHS, but never added it to GR because I felt that the book required a reread for it to truly count as most of it was lost on me at the time. It's a book that I need to revisit.


message 67: by Judy (new)

Judy (patchworkcat) | 5743 comments I'm reading it during the Toppler, too, Lisa. Good choice!

Not in the least, Tajma! You will be a fun addition. Now to teach Puppy to read....Oh, but you could read to Puppy...?

Amanda | 214 comments Hello everyone! I'm here to help topple those tipplers!


message 77: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (cherylllr) Welcome all! We're sure shaping up a champion team here!


message 78: by Maria (new)

Maria (aminowrimo) | 462 comments So are the teams still equal? I give up trying to figure it out.

OH... also.

June 16th we will be in the airport. June 17th we should reach Johannesburg. I'll try to access internet to tell you guys how the toppler went, but if I can't, the next time I'll be able to will be in July, as June-July we'll be in... Madagascar. I'll really push to get all the points out on the 17th, though, as I want to see who won. XD

message 88: by Maria (new)

Maria (aminowrimo) | 462 comments Just... 14 more hours? Or something.

Lots of last-minute writing (want to reach 50,000 words in this novel, hopefully 60,000 by Tuesday... I'm at 44,000), trying to finish my James Joyce book (lovely, I just can't sit myself down for it. I need a timer and some peace and quiet with no moving landscape).
