Today starts my annual week of volunteering at the Endurrun International. This is an eight day series of seven running races that cover a total distance of 160 kilometres. This is my sixth or so year of volunteering.
This year I thought I would keep track of books being read by participants, volunteers and supporters.
Drew Hayden Taylor.
Jodi Picoult. She told me that she had borrowed this from her mother's bookshelf. This is the first book that she has read by this author. She is also a summer reader. She doesn't get much time during the year to read, but in the summer she enjoys sitting down and diving into a few longer reads.
I thought it would be interesting to compare what the public really is reading compared to what the publishers and major book stores are telling us is popular. I haven't read anything by Ms. Picoult, but upon reading the back cover of this book, I realized that I have held it in my hand and done the same thing previously.
Note that I have also added a twitter feed for 'Endurrun' to the left sidebar. Our web master Chris will be updating through out the week and during the actual race. This is the first time that we have had such up to the minute results to share worldwide.
