Kathy Broyles | 511 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.

Conclusion: I've realized I'm terribly bad at these longer read-a-thons. I should probably stick to the shorter ones, but I always think I'll do so much better every time I attend, and end up disappointing myself... I just have way too much other stuff to do on a regular basis, like work and study, and exercise. I guess I'll just wait for summer and hope to do better then. (I'm still probably going to join in on these read-a-thons, and be equally disappointed in myself every time. I'm predictable like that.)
