Reading for Change Update

48 Hour Reading Challenge – are you excited? I’m excited!

(For details on how you can raise money for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation by sponsoring me to read until my eyes fall out of my head and roll around the floor like dried peas, check out this post.)

The books I must read thus far, pending availability:

Silver Phoenix, Cindy Pon
8th Grade Super Zero, Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich
Any one of the Twelve Kingdoms series, Fuyumi Ono
The True Meaning of Smekday, Adam Rex
Trixie Belden and the Secret of the Mansion, Julie Campbell
Day of the Dragon, Richard Knaak. (Not strictly YA, but who am I to stop Miggy from torturing me?)
People Might Hear You, Robin Klein.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson, John Green and David Levithan.
Bone Black, bell hooks

I am going to putting in an international book order tomorrow, so if you have plans to make me read something not available in Australia, NOW is the time to get your pledge on. Of course, you can sponsor me at any time! The Foundation will appreciate it muchly.

  • I will select next year’s book with the same great care I gave to the previous two.
