You can do it short bursts of a few minutes if you'd like. :)

I was thinking it was going to be today but Dominique pointed out that it was father's day so I set it for tomorrow. :)


Stephanie - Books Less Travelled (bookslesstravelled) What is a reading sprint?


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) Stephanie wrote: "What is a reading sprint?"

A reading sprint is a set amount of time that two or more people agree to read for. At the end you can choose to tell how many pages you read. What you thought of what you read and so on. :)

Alex (alex1320) | 18 comments Sounds like a lot of fun;) but it is 1am in Europe... if I'll be awake I'll try;)
Father's day is not always on 19th. It depends on a country you live... we celebrate always on 23th

In Canada and the USA it's the 19th. But I know that mother's day is about 2-3 months earlier in Europe. I didn't know that father's day was different though. ^-^

It's be great if you can join us. If not tomorrow then in the future. :)


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) Can't wait to do this! :)


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) Only an hour to go! ^-^

Anytime during the hour you can join would be great! Even it's only a minute or two. :)

I've always been intrigued by Dr. Who but something always throws me off from actually watching the show or reading the books. :/

I probably wouldn't like it then. I prefer simple, easy to read story lines with a few dramatic twists added in to keep it interesting. :)

That's always disappointing. I hope it lets up soon so you can read your other book! :)

BaronVonBoom~If you love something: Let it go. If it comes back to you: Its yours. If it doesn't: It never was~BaronVonBoom | 101 comments Sure whatever. I am all ready to debate about that but rn I'm busy and Lazy. So I'll let it slide.


message 32: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) lol. This made me think of the weather nowadays. :P

"We arrived at Rufus and turned north, heading toward the White Street. It was named for the snowfall of '14, when three inches of fine powder covered the street's ugly asphalt. Three inches of snow was not terribly unusual for Atlanta except that it had come in May and refused to melt in the following months despite the hundred-degree heat. Three and a half years later it finally gave in and thawed during an Indian summer."


message 33: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) We are now midway into the sprint. How is everyone doing? :)
