Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments Hello,
To help celebrate our group's anniversary, we have decided to host mini readathons during each weekend in June. This readathon will be from June 1 through June 3. These are just meant to be fun and friendly ways to motivate each other while meeting personal goals. You can set any personal goal for yourself during each readathon, whether that be reading a certain number of books or pages, or starting or finishing a book.
As always, feel free to ask if you have any questions!
Have fun reading!

This is a great idea!! I'm moving this weekend so it will be slower going for me. I'm halfway down with Red Queen currently.

KK. Just saw your post on the YA group thread. :D


message 49: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments Good luck with the move.


message 50: by Liz (new)

Liz (thelovelymoonandi) @Bookbuyer It’s really good. I have exactly 95 pages left of the book. i can’t believe i actually finished this so quickly. I’ll have a detailed review of it once I’m done. Speaking of, I actually had a question. If I have already started the book in May, and finish it in June. How would I show many pages I’ve read? I hope that makes sense. I should probably go to bed now.
