Tomorrow is Dewey's readathon, and I'm most excited! And I happen to have a new stash: this morning, my plans were to finish my Orlando post, and do a bit of housework changed completely, and we ended up deciding to have a day out to Alnwick. Alnwick, of course, is home of Barter Books, which is where I've been for most of the afternoon! The perfect place to go in autumn - roaring fire, and the smell of coffee and books.
Here's my stash:
- Roughing It by Mark Twain
- Kim by Rudyard Kipling
- The Duke's Children by Anthony Trollope
- Comedies and Satires by Edgar Allan Poe
- The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro by Beaumarchais
- The Prime Minister by Anthony Trollope
- Basil by Wilkie Collins
- The Landleaguers by Anthony Trollope
- A Simple Story by Elizabeth Inchbald
- Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse
- Very Good, Jeeves! by P. G. Wodehouse
- Why Be Happy When You Can Be Normal? by Jeanette Winterson
I'm thrilled to have finally found the Jeanette Winterson, and yes, I know - I can go to Waterstones or buy it off Amazon, but that spoils the hunt. I've been wanting it since it came out, but I've particularly been looking for it since I saw the documentary (I think that was on at Christmas last). I've already started it, so maybe it'll have been finished long before the readathon starts!
But, if not, that will be first on my list. And of course, I shall read a Jeeves. The rest? I'm not so sure... I'm going to have a look around my bookshelves for inspiration tomorrow - that's part of the fun of a readathon, so I want to leave the anticipation as long as I can... I think Money by Zola will definitely be on the pile as well. Anyway, I shall post tomorrow! Let me know if any of you are joining in! I think this is my 5th one... I'm going for at least 12 hours, hopefully 18.
