It's time to mark your calendars for our next quarterly read-a-thon! It will take place Friday June 22nd at 12.01am and continue until Sunday June 24th at 11.59pm in your local time zone - 3 full days :)

We read 21,608 pages last quarterly Read-a-thon so let's see if we can KNOCK THAT FIGURE OUT OF THE PARK!

Don't forget our Challenge Guidelines here

Please post your interest here in this thread up until we begin the challenge - when the weekend is over the page numbers read will be tallied:)

If possible, check in at least once a day, more often if you want. Our cut off time for you to add your final totals with a NEW POST will be Monday 25th AEST:)

I am doing an audio book. The function is 40 minutes away, so 80 minutes all up in an audio book so that will cover a few pages if I choose correctly - might put the reader on a faster pace. :)

Odette (odman) | 943 comments I would love to join in.
Just back from an overseas tour, and there was not much time for reading. It was either too busy or I was too tired. It feels good to have had a break from reading, and the readathon will be ideal to get me going again.

Where have you travelled to Odette? I am the same when travelling although I always read when I go to bed, or try to anyway.

I did an organised 21 day tour from Berlin, through Poland, the Baltic States, Finland and finishing in St Petersburg. The days were busy and the evening meal quite late, so was ready to sleep at night. I did try to read but did not last long at all!
