I have fifty-four items on my library hold list. Only one of these is a DVD. That means, for the mathematically-challenged, that I have fifty-three books just waiting to be read. All I have to do is change them from “inactive” to “active,” and in a few days, I should have a boatload of books sitting on the shelf in all their papery glory.
This begs the question: what am I going to read on Do Nothing But Read Day?
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s Southern Gothic atmospheric horror/romance Beautiful Creatures is on my short list right now. Unfortunately, the library system in Madison, WI, doesn’t own any copies yet! They are, however, being ordered and I have a copy on hold. If it comes in before the 20th, it will be read!
I’ve heard great things about Kate DiCamillo’s The Magician’s Elephant, and it’s also on my hold list. I am 10th out of 73 holds.
Ruined: a ghost story, by Paula Morris, is another Southern Gothic story about ghosts in New Orleans. It has a gorgeous cover. I am fourth in line!
In case you couldn’t guess, I really like Southern Gothic stuff at the moment. I think it’s all the True Blood I’ve been watching. So it really depends on which books on my hold list arrive on what date. I’ll let you know the closer it gets!
What are you planning on reading on Do Nothing But Read Day?
