I’ve got a lot of books I’ve been meaning to read and now I have an excuse to ignore the world and just read! ^_^
What is a Readathon?
A Readathon is where you set a goal for yourself to read more books that is beyond your average number of books you read. There is no minimum, it’s all up to you! Push yourself to get some of those books read that have been sitting on your shelves for awhile! You can read anything you like. Any genre, any subject.
What you do:
To participate in the Once Upon a Readathon you enter into the linky below. It’s the same linky on all our blogs, so only enter into it ONCE! Then grab the button and post it on your sidebar to spread the word and so you don’t forget. Then, from 12:01 am on July 8th to 11:59 pm on July 10th you read, read, and read some more! Make sure you do at least one update post (if you don’t have a blog you may do this on facebook and/or twitter) and participate in at least one challenge.
I was going to daily goals but I’m not an extremely fast reader so I’ve decided to just list the rest of the books I hope to finish.
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett
- The Vagrants by Yiyun Li
- Prince of the Clouds by Gianni Riotta
- The Girl with the Glass Feet by Ali Shaw
They’re all reasonably sized books containing 200-300 pages so let’s see how many I actually manage to get through. I think I’ll be able to manage a book a day, as long as I have no distractions! In that case, I’ll be reading The Girl with the Glass Feet and Prince of the Clouds on Tuesday and Wednesday.
I’ve started on Adapting Eden already but I’ve only read a page or so! I also need to get the review for Revealing Eden written up before I get too far into Adapting Eden. *sigh*
I’m going to try to take part in a couple of the challenges that are part of the read-a-thon too. But we’ll see what happens once they’re posted!
