Dewey's Read A Thon

I'm all set for the Read-a-Thon. I finished my final and got a 90 of the multi choice part - yeah. Won't know for a few days what I got on the essay part but pretty sure will be getting a B for the course.

When I mentioned the Read-a-Thon to father all he said was "I don't have to read do I?" LOL! We discussed it and decided we will donate a certain amount to the American Heart Association. We have a lot of heart things that run in both our families, so seemed the most appropriate thing to do. For every page I read, we will donate .10 cents or at least $50.

The books I plan on reading are:

The Titian Committee by Iain Pears - 230 pages
B is for Burglar by Sue Grafton - 211 pages
The Ghost and Mrs. McClure by Alice Kimberly - 261 pages
Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs - 287 Pages
Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury - 158 pages
The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint Exupery - 83 pages
The Soul Collectors by Charles Quince - 78 pages

At this point a total of 1308 pages

If I finish those, there are plenty of others waiting in the wings. I'm excusing myself from writing any major reviews but will write a brief synopsis with the first few lines and my thoughts of the book. I'll keep updating the same post instead of doing several so look for update through the day. Will probably start around 7:30 because my brain simply won't be working at 5:00 a.m.
