Krysta (krystafig) | 4089 comments PA&N Read-a-Thon #1
Duration:
July 27th - August 2nd

Welcome to what I hope will be the first of many successful Read-a-Thons!

This particular Read-a-Thon will take place from the stroke of 12:00am (midnight) on Sunday, July 27th, 2014 until the last second of 11:59pm (just before midnight) on Saturday August 2nd, 2014.
If the Read-a-Thon is successful and you all wish to continue with them, we can move the dates around to suit more people.

You may set goals for yourself to reach, or simply log hours/pages/books/etc if you wish.
The choice is yours.
The main goal of this is to push yourself to read more than you normally would.

So here we go!
Grab your books and let's get reading!

Agreed...
This is basically just to help you get your TBR down! If you've got some non-paranormal books you need to get through, go for it!
I'm pretty sure a couple of my books aren't paranormal that I've got on my list.

Just keep in mind that you cannot count books as "finished" unless you finish them on July 27th.
If they are finished prior to the 27th, they don't count for the read-a-thon.
You can start a book prior to the read-a-thon, but you can only start counting minutes/pages/books after the 27th.

Cindy | 243 comments After buying a house, ripping out and replacing the kitchen, painting, etc and then finally moving in, I haven't finished a single book in the last 2 MONTHS! I normally would've gotten through at least 15-20. I'm going to participate, but my goal is extremely small!!

I want to finish the book I've been attempting to read for a lot of weeks!

I've had my failed read-a-thons too...it's ok, life happens and we all understand!
Maybe after the house is nice and clean though you can kick back and get in a couple of pages to relax?

But with my day job and my night job I have very little time to read during the week. Still, the goal is just to read more than usual, and I've already read more than usual. So, it's going good. :)

Congrats Krysta! I don't know now you manage to count hours. I'm a fiend for reading 5 mins here and 15 there, whenever I have a free second. I'd be walking around with a notepad all the time. Counting pages is so much easier for me.

I use the timer on my phone and just hit start and stop throughout the day whenever I get a minute to read.
I don't do pages because I read PDF versions of books that I've sent to myself aren't accurate with the page count in comparison to the actual book.

If I have something with a wonky page count I'll pull the page count from the kindle version on Goodreads. I also tend to try to start & finish books within read-a-thons so I don't have to do too much math.

It's always interesting to see how others count their totals during these. :D

Renee Rearden (reneerearden) | 43 comments Ugh, I gave up on the book I started July 31. August 1 was grandson's soccer game after work. August 2 was a book signing. Soooo little time and so many books!

Had a great time though. Look forward to the next read-a-thon!
