Mission to Read

This is kind of last minute but I have the day off from work tomorrow so I am going to participate in the Summer Solstice Read-a-thon. Below is the description of the readathon taken from here
Summer Solstice Read-a-thon is a 24 hr event taking place on the longest day of the year...June 21, 2013.  
It was created by Rie @ Mission To Read and is cohosted by Melissa of Harley Bear Book Blog, Lindsay of The Novel Life, Kathrin of StackedNPainted, and Melina of The Pretty Nifty YA Reader. 
The goal of this read-a-thon is to take advantage of all the extra daylight and read as much as you can! Mini challenges and a giveaway will be happening this day so make sure to check out any of the host's blog's the day of for more information.  
Don't forget to chat with us at the twitter party 12pm CST #SSReadathon.

Books to Read
1. Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan
2. Zombie Spaceship Wasteland by Patton Oswalt
3. Born Standing Up by Steve Martin
4. Confessions of a Prairie Bitch by Alison Arngrim
5. The Pluto Files by Neil deGrasse Tyson
My Goals
time spent reading: I have the whole day off from work and my only plans for the day are to get my car serviced so I think I will be able to crush it timewise. 

books: I went with non-fiction books. None of them are super long and each is at least partly funny so I think they are all well suited for a readathon.
