Johnni Quest (johnniquest) | 1124 comments Mod
Welcome to our week long read-a-thon. 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 Saturday to 11:59pm on the following Saturday 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.

Hey Ninitha! I might be able to help. First question, are you editing the note from the GoodReads App or from the desktop site?

We have THIRTY FIVE participants so far for this week!! You guys are all soooo awesome! I'm so excited!


message 42: by Jason (new)

Jason Cook (rytr_1) | 38 comments Shaunesay, thanks! The hard part is deciding which books to take with me on vacation. (I'm sure there are many here who could attest to that.) Summer of Night will last me most of the week, if not all of it. But I have a few others selected to take along in case I need them.
