New Year Readathon

Kristen at Bookworming in the 21st Century is hosting a Read-a-thon this weekend.  And I’m all about readathons!

All the deets:

Now, what is the Read-a-thon all about? Promoting reading in the new year – 2010!

Starts: 5 pm on Thursday, December 31st
Ends: 10 pm on Sunday, January 3rd

You can read as little or as much as you want! Also, I’m planning on having a smaller event called Reading Into the New Year – where us bookworms can read as it turns midnight! I will be posting the sign up for that event next. Please partake in either or both!!!

So, to start off. My goal is to read at least 24 hours. I’m going to see what books I get through closer to the date and then post about the pile of books I want to get through. As you’re thinking about what books you want to read, consider the following:

-Shorter books are easier to push through and you may want to include a few of those
-You don’t have to read a crazy amount of hours – whatever you can fit in!
-This is a no stress readathon, so if you don’t meet your goal – no big.
-Think about any new challenges your starting and what books are on those lists.

Go on over to her blog if you want to sign up.  I’m not sure what I’m going to read yet, since I *just* decided to take part, but I do know I’m going to take a gander at Waiting for Columbus.  And Geektastic.  And The Guinea Pig Diaries.  And maybe Leviathan, Specials, Boneshaker, East of Eden, Hard Times, and more.  I have a huge stack on my desk of books I want to read in January!

  1. Hee! The list keeps growing and growing! LOL

    I'm going to be participating in this one too. I've got Liar on tap for today so I can participate in That's How I Blog chatter on Tuesday.

    Good luck, hope you enjoy your selections 🙂
