readathon over the weekend. Pledge to read a few books and (if you like) donate to a local charity based on the amount you read.
I don't know if I'll get much reading in this weekend, but last weekend was a pretty good one for me, so I will try. I've pledged $5 per book I read. Our school is collecting money right now for an organization that works with homeless people, and that would be a perfect place to donate the money. You can buy toiletries and clothes or just given money so they can buy the items, so I know a cash donation is good with them.
Also I went to James' school book fair today (YAY!) and found a couple of MG books... so I have at least two relatively short and easy books at the top of my list.
I'm currently working on Sophie Kinsella's Can you Keep a Secret,
and up next are:
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, and
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. She's a bug girl, so I'm all over it.
