Read-a-thon Woot Woot

I’m excited to make this blog post because we are getting very close to a day I have been looking forward to for a long time. On June 4th, we are doing a 24hr read-a-thon. What does that mean? This means that for 24 glorious hours, I get to do nothing but have guilt-free reading. To make it fun, we have involved several great writers, bloggers, and readers in this event. At last count, we had 52 participants signed up.

This is an event that is open to everyone. Several fabulous individuals are involved with this event. The blog site that will be hosting it  is http://awesomebookworm.blogspot.com/ you can click on this site to sign up. Other individuals that have so graciously agreed to help are: Jaime and Patricia at  http://twochicksonbooks1.blogspot.com/ Missy at http://tworeadersreviews.blogspot.com/ and Rachel at http://www.fiktshun.com/fiktshun/ . They can also be found on Twitter under their Twitter names: @BrielleBookworm, @arnoldjaime13, @iampmendoza, @missyreviews and @fiktshun.

We plan on having many giveaways during the 24 hours that many of the participants have so kindly donated to the event. The few rules that have been set: 1) You have to tweet at least a couple of times throughout the day on what you are currently reading. ( Hopefully, this will help spread the word about new authors that we may not know about and help all of us discover great new books) 2) No spoilers please 😮 The last rule I have set is that everyone needs to be courteous. We have several readers and bloggers that are younger including the blogger who is hosting the event, I ask that they all be treated fairly with their age being considered.

I hope to see many more of you for the event and feel it is going to be a lot of fun. 😮

    I have a stack of books I have to catch up with and this could be just what I need. I’ll have to check to make sure my wife doesn’t have any plans for me. Yeah I know I’m lock down…

    I want in on the read-a-thon! I have a huge TBR pile and have yet to sit down long enough to get some reading done. This sounds like the perfect plan. 🙂
