Ev | 72 comments Welcome to our 24 hour long read-a-thon. Each reader reads from 12:01am to 11:59pm 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 if you'd like, or to invent your own.

And I'm sorry in advance if I don't link your name with your post. I am still working on getting the basics down, but don't let my lack of skills discourage you. Grab a book and join us!
