message 25: by Chalmation (new)

Chalmation | 2212 comments I participated in my first one in January: the 24 in 48 readathon. I think I read for 10 hours. I even won a book.


message 26: by Chalmation (new)

Chalmation | 2212 comments I won a hardcover of The Woman in the Window, which I already had on my library wish list. I only read Kindle ebooks, but I think I might read the version I won, sometime this year.

I even added both versions of Rear Window to my Netflix queue, since the book is supposed to be similar.

Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 655 comments I participated twice in the yearly two week Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon (has it's own group), several of the monthly 6 to 7 days RaTs (Crazy Challenge Connection & Badass Reading Challenges groups) though I never joined a 24-hour-RaT before.

It's too early for me know which of my many books will be still open in one month or stumble onto my TBR by than :-) Most of my books are for one of my many challenges or depending on my mood *grins*

Who here has participated in a readathon before and for whom will this be your first time? Any readathon plans yet (TBR pile, game plan, etc)?"


I participated in the last 24in48 readathon. I plan on reading some for work (not looking forward to it) and some for fun. After each 3-4 hours of reading for work I get to read for fun (probably His Dark Materials since I haven't been able to pick up those books from my library before my holiday, so will read all of them after I get back).


message 31: by Lynn (new)

Lynn | 297 comments I never really did an organized read-a-thon before but I am looking forward to it very much! I will use the time to catch up on challenge books & buddy reads! :) I am being extremely optimistic and saying I would like to complete 3-4 books during my proposed 15 hours :)


message 32: by Lynn (new)

Lynn | 297 comments Possible titles I am *considering* for the read-a-thon ...

The Black Echo (Harry Bosch, #1; Harry Bosch Universe, #1) by Michael Connelly Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer Troublemaker Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J.

Winter (winter9) | 4660 comments So unfortunately this is the same weekend as my mother celebrates her 60 year birthday. We are probably going to have visits and I have to bake two cakes, but I want to try for three hours, one hour a day. Wish I could read more, we will see how this goes.

Thank you! You just reminded me that this is a weekend I am traveling to visit an out of state cousin! I'm probably only going to be able to read for 3 or 4 hours too.

Brittany | 597 comments I'm in for 12 hours hopefully! I've never done a readathon before although I have wanted to. No clue yet what I will read.

There's a good chance I will read more than 12 hours with audiobook time but I leave it at that for now.
My attempted reading list, subject to change on a whim:

I will finish listening to Lock In (Lock In, #1) by John Scalzi

Intend to read from the following: Library Wars Love & War, Vol. 2 (Library Wars Love & War #2) by Kiiro Yumi Library Wars Love & War, Vol. 3 (Library Wars Love & War #3) by Kiiro Yumi Cast in Flame (Chronicles of Elantra, #10) by Michelle Sagara The Last Piece of My Heart by Paige Toon Taste of Darkness (Healer, #3) by Maria V. Snyder The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1) by Brandon Sanderson Furiously Happy A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson

Never done a readathon before but most weekends, I'm reading all day Saturday/Sunday. My plan is to finish a book from my TBR pile that I can include in as many group challenges as possible.

Sharon (sharint) | 740 comments I'm going to try for 10 hours, I will have a friend in town for part of the weekend but we'll see how much I am able to read.


message 42: by Janine (new)

Janine | 1115 comments What a fun idea to choose a number of hours rather than pages/books. The Friday and Saturday are a bit busy for me (Friday is my birthday, Saturday is international tabletop day - I will be in a bookstore until 3am, just playing boardgames instead of reading!)

I'll sign up for a conservative 6 hours.
