I happened to see a Twitter conversation about this month's #Weirdathon, yesterday, and immediately signed up because I am nothing if not weird and therefore I'm a fan of weirdness and weird events.
The sign-up goes on through Saturday and you can read the entire thread about #Weirdathon, here. I can't get to some of the books on my long list, at the moment, but I'll post a picture when I've at least got most of what I'm considering. In the meantime, the books on my mental planning list:
- Jamrach's Menagerie by Carol Birch
- The Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe
- Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami
- Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel
It's the Margaret Atwood titles that I can't get to: Oryx and Crake, Alias Grace. And, because I'm weird, all titles are subject to being thrown back on the shelf and changed for others, at any time. I can definitely get into a weird event, especially if it also involves #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.
Addendum: I've started reading Other Voices, Other Rooms by Truman Capote and one of my F2F group's members has already declared that it's weird. So, maybe that counts. Maybe not. I'm finding it typically Southern and loving the language.
