Do Nothing But Read Day 2011 + What I'm Reading

I rarely (if ever) need an excuse to read, but I am looking forward to "Do Nothing But Read Day" this year. DNBRD falls on Saturday, August 6, and it should be a lot of fun. Given the number of books that are in my "To be read" pile, this should help me make a dent. I just finished The Memoir Project by Marion Roach Smith, and I'm in the middle of The Making of Cabaret by Keith Garebian.

Depending on my progress on the Garebian book, my planned reading for August 6 might include:

  • The Making of a Poem by Mark Strand
  • Just My Type by Simon Garfield (I got this from LibraryThing Early Reviewers June batch, but it is a pdf that does NOT play well with my Nook, so it has been a slow read since I have to do it at a computer)
  • Something's Coming, Something Good: West Side Story and the American Imagination by Misha Berson (it has been on my TBR list since June)
Are you participating in DNBR day? If so, what are you planning to read?
