Katie | 2362 comments Read-a-thon #3 is here! As always, this is your official progress post. Use it to share your progress with the group and offer encouragement to your fellow read-a-thonners.

Tell us...

As with all our read-a-thons, we want to remind participants that the idea is to read, read, read. Read as much as you can and have as much fun as you can doing it. Don't make reading a job or a chore. Don't let the progress of others intimidate or discourage you. Everyone reads at their own pace and we're here to have fun. Go on! Get started! Read and enjoy!
