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.

Aw that's really great to hear, Adrianna! I always enjoy seeing what other people are reading. I'm glad we have this supportive reading group here on goodreads :D

I know! It is very inspiring. However, remember pushing yourself will take the joy of reading away. ANY progress is progress. I'm a very slow reader and I accept that. I love my progress though! <3 Happy reading!
