The Wicked Valentine Readathon has already started and challenges you to read as much as you can now through 2/15. Along the way they have mini-challenges to complete for prizes. Since I have several books I want to finish this week, now’s the perfect time to sign up for my first read-a-thon.
My goal is to finish 3 books in the next week:
Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (for the Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge) Done!
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (audiobook for the Monthly Keyword Challenge and the Back to the Classics Challenge) Done!
Here I Go Again by Jen Lancaster (for my book club) Done!
I would also like to participate in some mini-challenges along the way, it’s a great way to meet new book bloggers and get great recommendations for books to read for all these fun challenges.
Won’t you join me?
Updates During the Read-a-Thon
2/7/13: After signing up, I finished reading Hunger Games 172 pages
2/8/12: Listened to 3 discs of To Kill a Mockingbird and read 43 pages in Here I Go Again. Not as much as I hoped but busy day with work and family visiting. To Kill a Mockingbird is riveting and enjoying Here I Go Again, it’s laugh out loud funny!
2/9/13: Listened to 1 more disc of To Kill a Mockingbird and on the last disc. Gotta see how this ends! Read 159 pages in Here I Go Again. Participated in the Twitter Party yesterday evening, met some new bloggers and apparently have some new series like The Night Huntress that I need to read and won an Amazon gift card! Awesome!
2/10/13: Listened to final disc of To Kill a Mockingbird, that classic is done! Finished the rest of Here I Go Again. Check out my It’s Monday! What Are you Reading? post to see what’s in store for this week. Can’t believe I got through 3 books already!
2/14/13: I was so happy to have finished all three books and participate in the twitter paries! I love meeting great new bloggers and reconnecting with bloggers I admire/stalk. I also read 43 pages in The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. Gotta get through that one quickly, it’s due to the library in 3 days! Wish me luck! Thanks to My Shelf Confessions for hosting a terrific readathon. I look forward to participating in other as they come along!
