I feel like doing a readathon again! This time, I'm posting a couple of days in advance, so that if anyone feels like keeping me company and/or doing it too, we can coordinate that a bit. I'm planning on reading from 10am GMT 'til 10pm GMT, non-stop, on Saturday 27th, and I'd welcome company and encouragement on MSN, AIM, gtalk or twitter. Just ask about those if you want to add me.

This is what will be on my pile for the day, though I might spread out and read other things, too:

-The Boy Who Was Buried Yesterday, by Joseph Hansen. The eleventh in the series of Brandstetter books, featuring an openly gay detective.
-A Country of Old Men, by Joseph Hansen. The twelfth book in the Brandstetter series, and the final one.
-The Roman de Brut, by Wace. A medieval Arthurian text, based on Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia. Trivia: it was the first text to mention the Round Table.
-The Brut, by Layamon. A medieval Arthurian text based on Wace's Brut!
-King Arthur's Bones, by the Medieval Murderers, a group of mystery writers who collaborate. I think you can guess what this is about.
-The Little White Horse, by Elizabeth Goudge. A children's fantasy novel one of my friends reaaaally wants me to read.
-The Virgin Suicides, by Jeffrey Eugenides. A story in an interesting POV about a family of girls who all apparently committed suicide.

I think that'll give me plenty to choose from, on its own -- I don't expect to be able to finish all those -- but you never know: I might end up being restless and picking something else.

Impressive list! I'm considering joining in, depending on when you mean to do the read-a-thon, since my [community profile] ladiesbigbang project still needs finishing. :)
