I just wanted to make sure that everyone knows about the 24 hour readathon, which is coming up soon!
What is the readathon, you ask? Excellent question! The 24 Hour Readathon is a glorious day when nerds from all over join together on the interwebs to enjoy 24 full hours of reading. As of right now, there are over 200 readers planning to participate in this most wonderful day.You read some books, blog about the reading (and snacks! Readathon people love them some snacks...), and you participate in mini challenges so you can win prizes! And then really awesome people will come to your blog/facebook page/twitter feed and cheer you on!
On Saturday, April 21, you must gather your books. Gather your snacks. Gather your courage (no...you probably don't actually need this). Read to your heart's content or until you need to nap or, in my case, go to a senior class luncheon with a soon-to-be-graduating husband. People will cheer you on! You can win books and stuff! You are awesome!
So those are the basics, friends. I will be joining in sporadically. As I mentioned, we have the luncheon thing and I do have a four year old, so we shall see what happens. Check out my experiences with last year's readathon here and visit the official 24 Hour Readathon site here and sign up!
So...are you in???
Lol, oh, awesome! Another read-a-thon. It unfortunately falls on one of the busiest days for me this month, haha, but maybe I'll try and sneak in a book or two that night, ^_^.ReplyDelete
I don't know how much I will get done either. It is a crazy time for us! It will be fun though, even if I don't get too much reading done.Delete
I always seem to have commitments I can't get out of when this comes around - maybe next year!ReplyDelete

I know! I was actually supposed to be away this weekend. Even though I'm home now, my calendar is hardly empty.Delete
I think I'll try and join in too - it was such fun last time it's a shame to miss out. Can't do the full 24hours though, I've got to go into work on Sunday :-( Isn't it annoying the way life interferes with good reading!ReplyDelete
I know! Don't you wish someone would pay you to read all day? If they threw in free childcare, I would in!Delete
...I would be in. (note to self - read before hitting publish)Delete
