Which book(s) are you looking forward to adding to your #readathon pile this year?
— Dewey's Read-a-thon (@readathon) April 2, 2013
The book that I am most looking forward to reading during Dewey's Read-a-Thon on April 27, 2013 is First Love, Last Rites. Ian McEwan (bestselling author of Atonement: A Novel) won the Somerset Maugham award for this collection of short stories so I have big expectations. After the read-a-thon, I am going to take a long nap and then watch the movie adaptation below.
Joey (Giovanni Ribisi) and Sissel (Natasha Gregson Wagner) are two misfits falling in love for the first time in this story based on a short story by acclaimed author Ian McEwan.
