Random House of Canada’s Olympic Readathon


The London Olympics start tomorrow! In solidarity with our great athletes, I’m going for the gold in Random House of Canada’s Olympic Readathon.
Between July 27 and August 12, I aim to read 1200 pages. That’s roughly four books but I picked out six novels from my to-be-read pile to be safe:
  1.   Miguel Street by V.S. Naipaul—222 pages (currently on pg. 107)
  2. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce—296 pages
  3. Tar Baby by Toni Morrison—306 pages 
  4. The Beauty of the Humanity Movement by Camilla Gibbs—294 pages
  5. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley—231 pages
  6. The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón—531 pages (currently on pg. 134)
To make sure I reach my goal I will:
  1. Read at least 75 pages each day. This is a marathon not a sprint so I plan to set my pace from day one and stick to it.  
  2. Move on if a book loses my interest. I always try to muddle through books I don’t like. Not this time. It’s a race to the finish! I can’t waste my time on duds!
