message 10: by Shay (new)

Shay | 370 comments I'm in. I'm behind in many ways. Most important is one of my goals was to read 15 books a month from the 1001 books you must read list. (Well, my real goal was 10 a month, but why not shoot for 15.) So, my goal during the readathon is to read 1 list book a day- 7 total.

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 505 comments Count me in!!! I am sore of behind in what I want to read!!! I will get time to read some really good books! That I have had on my TBR and just bought a few too!


message 12: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer C Count me in as well


message 13: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (beantime) I so wish I could participate, especially since we only have 4 now. I thought week-long readathons would be easier to be a part of but I didn't even think about the times when I'd be busy for a whole week! haha, oh well. Good luck, everyone! I hope those of you who need to catch up can do so!

Julie Smith (Knitting and Sundries) (jewelknits) | 63 comments I'm in; I have a bunch of books in my personal tbr pile, and I will use this week to read them rather than review boks (Maybe I can finally get to the last two Stiegg Larsson books!)

I'm going to cash in on the 24-hour readathon and then try to use the week as mainly a reading week as well.


message 16: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 505 comments Oooohhhh!!! Julie I just finished the second one and it is WAY WAY WAY better than the first!

Oh! Urgh!! I've had these waiting for over five months; I'm going to read and write a bunch of reviews this week to have them ready, so that I can just take a week off to read my own pile!

(oh, and I meant review "books" rather than boks in my initial statement - darn typing fingers!)

message 28: by Deborah (new)

Deborah (DeborahKliegl) I am new. Can you explain to me what the read-a-thon is and what the date of it is? Thanks.


message 29: by Athira (new)

Athira (Reading on a Rainy Day) (readingonarainyday) | 835 comments I guess I'll do this too - though I'm certain I'm not going to get much reading time.

Deborah, a readathon is just an event where you try to read for longer time than you would normally. Sort of make reading a priority. Last year, we did 24 hour readathons every month. This year, we're doing week-long readathons, but only four times. The first readathon starts this Saturday 19th and ends on 26th. The rules are explained in this thread:

Rosina I m ready.... count me in.


message 31: by Deborah (new)

Deborah (DeborahKliegl) I thought I posted to this but I guess not. I'm in.


message 32: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (beantime) So I rearranged my week a bit (and bought my boyfriend a video game so he won't care if I'm not really hanging out with him lol), and now I'm in! Yay!


message 33: by Lisa S (new)

Lisa S (kasey_k_fan) Hey Michelle, you gotta do what you gotta do right? LOL


message 34: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (beantime) Right! Our anniversary is that week and he suggested we just have a full week of celebration, which was cool with me until I found out when the readathon is! hahaha

But really, I'm going to be able to participate because my boyfriend's boss promised to give him a few days off, and then changed his mind. So now he has to work a ton and I figure I might as well read a ton to keep my mind off of how much of a jerk his boss is!


message 35: by Debbie (new)

Debbie  (onyx95) | 157 comments might try for a few days, could use some good solid reading time, but don't know how much I will get.


message 36: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 70 comments I'm in for this week-long, sign me up please!


message 37: by Tiffiane (new)

Tiffiane (MNBookLady) | 104 comments I'm definitely in for the week long. I just had surgery yesterday so I'll be at home for 3 weeks recuperating! This couldn't have been more perfectly timed if I'd tried!! :) can't wait!


message 38: by Pat (new)

Pat | 277 comments I'm going to give it my best try.


message 39: by Valerie (new)

message 40: by KrisT (new)

message 48: by Jamie (new)

Jamie I'd like to join in, as well.


message 49: by Robin (new)

Robin (kanata) I'm in. I have like four books on the go but I'm stalled in all of them and think this will be the kick in the behind to get going. Also I've been wasting too much time surfing online when I'd rather be reading. Time to cut back.


message 50: by Athira (new)

Athira (Reading on a Rainy Day) (readingonarainyday) | 835 comments To all who signed up:
Check back in after 4-5 hours - I will have setup the progress thread. There's going to be a BIG surprise in there to spice things up. I didn't mention it earlier because it's an experimental feature, and we may or may not continue with it in the next readathon, depending on the response. But I hope you'll like it!
