Reading for a Good Cause- International Edition

September 16, 2010

Karen Healey is doing a readathon to raise money for the city of Christchurch.

The more money we donate- the more hours she’ll read, and post short, pithy reviews along the way. Her reviews often involve dialogue and snark. I love them.

As many of you know, I am a giant fangirly fan of Karen Healey. I got to review her first novel, Guardian of the Dead, and it utterly blew my doors off.

And then when I went to her book signing and met her, she was amazingly gracious, as well as very funny. (If you ever meet her, ask her where she gets her ideas. The answer may involve time travel and mermaids.)

I am donating.

I am also wondering if I should do something similar locally. Been kicking the idea around for awhile now, of doing a charity readathon.  Still trying to figure out the timing, and trying to choose between so many good causes I know that need help.
