The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived. I had some books come in from the library, but I still have the book sale tonight so this is only round two, not the finished stack.
From the top:
- Save the Date by Jen Doll
- The Wilde Passions of Dorian Gray by Mitzy Szereto
- A Short History of Women by Kate Walbert
- The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan
- The Mistress of Spices by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni *addition
- Persepolis 2 by Marjane Satrapi *addition
- Inferno by Dan Brown
- The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak
- China Dolls by Lisa See
I cut On Beauty, not because I don’t want to read it, but as I guessed, it’s pretty heavy for a readathon for me. Also Under the Tuscan Sun and Rules of Civility didn’t make the second round. I have no real reasons except I wanted to keep the stack at around 10 and I wanted to read Persepolis 2 and The Mistress of Spices more. What really impresses me about this stack is that it’s full of diverse authors. All but dear old Dan, I have a mix of women and AOC. This makes me happy. I really didn’t do it on purpose, which makes me happy that it turned out that way. These books organically fell into my lap, where before I had to search them out or make an effort.
My digital book stack really hasn’t changed. I am reading Station Eleven right now and I doubt I’ll finish tonight so I am almost positive it will be my first book of the readathon.
How is your book stack looking if you’re participating? Anything I should keep my eye out for at the library book sale?
