The Read-a-Thon of Distraction is Here! The Winners and My Reading List

So the randomizer has chosen from the entries I received and these five people will be my reading overlords for next week. In truth, I can’t wait. I’ve loved this idea since it first struck me way back when, six months and a different house ago. The best thing for me right now — really, the very best thing — would be to stick my nose in a book (or a series of books) and leave it there for an extended period of time.

I expect to come out on the other side having led five new mini-lives or filled to the corners of my hippocampus (Yes, my hippocampus has corners. I got it at IKEA.) with new information. I’ll be smarter and more well-rounded (corners notwithstanding) and refreshed after a hiatus from chasing my own tale, er… tail.

I’ve contacted all five winners and will add each book choice as they come in. Congratulations (and big thanks!) to:

Monday, January 21st  –  neednewspace  – Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

Tuesday, January 22nd  –  Lorne Eckersley  – The Golden Spruce by John Vaillant

Wednesday, January 23rd  –  Sebastian Fernandez  –  The Guards by Ken Bruen

Thursday, January 24th  –  Melysah – Shadow of a Dead Star by Michael Shean

Friday, January 25th  –  Christina Brown  – American Gods by Neil Gaiman

I’ll read them in the order the randomizer commanded and post a little recap of each as I finish. Presumably you’ll forgive me if they aren’t full on, detailed book reviews — I’m busy! I’ve got another book to read tomorrow! Wheeeeeee!

(Pssssst! If you didn’t win and would still like an ARC of THREE GRAVES FULL, Gallery Books is hosting a giveaway of 40 copies on Goodreads thru January 31st. Click here to redirect to Goodreads!)
