Jonel Welcome to our week long read-a-thon. This read-a-thon runs from March 5-12/16. That's right, at Hooked on Books we've decided that there aren't enough hours in a day, or days in a week, so our week long read-a-thons run for 8 days! Each participant reads from 12:01am on March 5/16 to 11:59pm on March 12/16 in their local time zone.

To sign up simply start yourself a post to track what you've read during the read-a-thon. Edit your post throughout the read-a-thon to let everyone know which books you've read & your total number of pages. Feel free to copy my post as a template.

Jasmiina F (slipperbunny) | 91 comments I'm almost finished with Hocus Pocus and Sophie's Choice and I'm not sure if I want to read Sushi for Beginners or The BFG next.


Ashley (JaffaCaffa) (jaffacaffa) | 166 comments I'm really happy with my reading so far, it's my goal to finish this book ASAP so I can catch up on the show before the new season starts. So far it's been pretty intense (and depressing). Even though 119 pages might not sound like much, I spent a good 4 hours really getting into it today.

I almost feel like re-reading all the books... But I have too much to read already.

I read yesterday only 61 pages from Sophie's Choice because I was at work most of the day. Today I'm hoping to finish two books.
