I am getting plenty of messages saying that people will be able to participate so the Read-A-Thon will be on from Sunday June 26 to Sunday July 3. Madelyn and myself will be hosting sprints on each day. We have set a series of reading challenges. We challenge everyone to read seven books and if you want you we have set up specific books to choose from:
1) A book that has been on your shelf for around a year
2)A book over 400 pages
3)An autobiography
4)Read a book recommended by a family member
5)Read a book originally written in a language you don't speak.
6) Read a book from a genre you don't normally read.
7) Read something by an author you have never read before.

Leave questions in comments and I will be sure to reply!

Sarah (sarahforsman_) Do we have to do the sprints at the exact time you tell us?

Well the whole point is for them to be "live" and go for the whole day so you can join anytime. I would love to get some people from different time zones to help out with that. But I wont tell you how to live your life...

No, you do not need to read the specific books. That challenge is there just for fun. Although the read a thon officially commences as soon as the clock strikes Midnight, I will only be on tomorrow morning:)

Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) Is there a thread were we can log page count and books we've read or can we do that in here?
