Johnni Quest (johnniquest) | 1226 comments Welcome to our week long read-a-thon. That's right, at Hooked on Books we've decided that there aren't enough hours in a day, or days in a week, so our week long read-a-thons run for 8 days! Each participant reads from 12:01am on Saturday to 11:59pm on the following Saturday in their local time zone.

To sign up simply start yourself a post to track what you've read during the read-a-thon. Edit your post throughout the read-a-thon to let everyone know which books you've read & your total number of pages.

I do a combination of all of those formats.


message 21: by Hazel (new)

Hazel (hazelev93) | 77 comments I read mostly paperbacks, when I do get a hardback it's a 'treat'.
I wih I could get into audiobooks but my mind just wanders off, don't have good enough concentration I think.

Most of the books I read are on my ereader but I do get a few paperbacks and hardcovers from the library every month.

Leane | 2741 comments Mod
I usually listen to audios when I'm doing something else mindless. A large part of my job is designing trade show displays. When it's time to actually put the items on the display that's when audiobooks come in handy. Or when I'm returning merchandise from those displays back into inventory, my audiobooks are a lifesaver! It's a very "manual" job and the books definitely help the time go by!
