Jennifer (alibrarianslibrary) | 179 comments Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Readathon Event!

This month, we have decided to host a Holiday Readathon! This readathon will take place December 19th-December 30th. This readathon will be a little different. Instead of setting individual goals, tis the season for gathering together! So, this readathon will have a collective goal!

During the 12 Days of Christmas Readathon, our collective goal will be 10 books for every day, which is 120 books! There will be 12 stages, 10 books per stage! I think we can do it! But we will need as many of you as possible!

SO here is what YOU need to do!

1. SIGN UP BELOW! Just leave a comment saying that you are planning on joining us!

2. Mark your calendar! The readathon happens in a week! 12am on the 19th in your time zone!

3. READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. Post each time you finish a book! Any book that you start and finish after the start date is fair game ( or any book that you were less than halfway done with before the 19th )! Just leave a comment about what book you read and it will be added to the list!

Sign ups are open now!

Let's say that anything you were less than halfway through can count. More than halfway won't.

Yes, please post a new comment each time you finish a book. I will keep a running tally at the top of the page!


message 46: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (alibrarianslibrary) | 179 comments Hooray, we are officially on the board!!! =)


message 47: by Kylie (new)

Kylie | 20 comments Just finished Vampire Kisses. Yes, I literally read this book in two hours. A very childish book with a weak story but I am annoyed with myself because I'm actually curious about what happens in the next book, ugh. I give this book 2.5/5 stars. If you want a quick read, it's mildly amusing. Beyond that, don't expect much from this book.


message 48: by Natalie (new)

Natalie (NatarieRarr) Can I still get in on this?! If so, count me in!


message 49: by Kara (new)

Kara (Kara2u) | 7 comments Yesterday I read The Trouble With Paradise by Jill Shalvis. Totally a fluff read but perfect to just relax with! Glad I read it. If all of her books are similar, I will probably read more.

Carrie (CarrieAJ) Finished S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline (12/19/12)
