My Plans for #24in48 Readathon

It has become my personal tradition to try to read 24 stories in 48 hours during the #24in48 Readathons.  (since I always fell short when I tried to read for 24 hours) I doubt I’ll get that many finished this weekend as I already have a pretty  full schedule, but I will try. 🙂 My reading list is pictured below.

I’ve only read two of the authors before, so I am looking forward to meeting a lot of new writers. I’m particularly interested to see what the Welcome to the Greenhouse anthology (stories about climate change) will serve up. W.W. Jacobs has been a favorite of mine ever since I read The Monkey’s Paw. I think all but one of these stories are new to me. The O. Henry Prize-winners anthology provided some great stories for me for Deal Me In 2017, but I have several “leftovers” to heat up and consume from that volume.

What are your #24in48 Readathon Plans?

    *facepalm* Why didn’t I remember WW Jacobs when I was setting up my Deal Me In list???

    Have fun readathon-ing this weekend!

    I would never touch Welcome to the Greenhouse. Of all the sci-fi out there, those are the scariest. The Windupgirl, for instance was one of the most disturbing book I’ve ever read!

      I read the Wind-up Girl too. I was ambivalent about it. Most of what I’ve read from Welcome to the Greenhouse so far has been good. The one story “The Middle of Somewhere” in particular was really good – and set approximately in the present day.

      I particularly liked his “The Lost Ship” and “The Castaway” both with kind of surprise endings, one a traditional twist and the other a kind of “gotcha” by the main character.

    I only finished ten of these during the readathon, but I still have the list in queue and hope to eventually finish them all. 🙂
