Attention: Readathon Ahead!

Hello All!  For some reason I've decided to host a readathon.  I'm planning it very far in advance so that we can have a ton of participants.  This readathon will take place over the Holiday break so from December 22nd all the way to January 1st!  It will be the perfect time to finish up all your 2011 challenges and make it to your reading goals for 2011.  I'd like any bloggers who would like to host giveaways and mini challenges throughout the readathon to signup below and if you'd like to sign up to be a part of the readathon, you can also do that below!  The Readathon is called...Drumroll Please!.... The Wrapping up 2011 Readathon!  I hope you'll participate!

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 any type of book you choose!

The Hashtag for quick updates and chatter about the readathon is: #WU2011R

How to enter:  Fill out the form and add your blog or website to the linky!  If you are posting from twitter, leave your profile URL.  If you don't have a website, blog, or twitter, you can update in the comments of the kickoff post on December 22nd, just make sure to fill out the form!

  1. Oh, OH! I will try to spread the word. Give me a couple days (maybe a month, I'm super busy right now)

    Good luck!

  2. Oh, I definitely want in on this! I start my Christmas break on the 22nd, so this is perfect. I've already reached my reading goal for 2011 (at 150 now, goal was 100), but it never hurts to add some more books to my list either!:)

  3. @Nina Wow! I wish I could read that fast! Glad to see more signups!

  4. Looking forward to this readathon! Hopefully, I can get some books off my TBR pile.

  5. So fun! I'm in!


  6. Hope it's not too late to join - I filled out the form but can't seem to find any linkys.


What did you think of my post? Have you read any of the books I may have spoke about? Do you agree with what I said? Etc. I love hearing from my readers!!
