Another 48 Hour Read-a-Thon

I know you're probably wondering why I keep doing these readathons when I fail so miserably at them.  Well, you know that motto, If at first you don't succeed...blah, blah, blah! It is true though.  I do keep trying until I get it right, but geez...you would think my love of reading would allow me to succeed! Anyway, this lovely 48 Hour Read-a-Thon is being hosted by the Unputdownables blog.  Click on the blog name to go and sign up.  Here are the details:

If You’re In:

1.Choose a few books that you will attempt to finish this weekend (Friday evening through Sunday night).

2.Post your TBR Read-a-Thon books on your blog so your readers can see what you are attempting for the weekend.

3.Challenge your readers to read along with you! (It’s OK if they don’t, but might be fun if they want to choose at least one book to participate with).

4.Join the discussion all weekend long at #bookblogchat on Twitter.

5.Post updates on your blog about what you are reading and what you have finished (full reviews can come later, but this will let your readers know what you are reading so they can either read along or look forward to your reviews!)

6.Visit other blogs that are doing the read-a-long. Post comments and follow your fellow bloggers.

7.Make sure you sign up here with Mr. Linky with a link to your first post so we can follow your progress!

8.*If you don’t have a blog but want to participate: Sign up with Mr. Linky, just don’t add a website (or you can link to your Twitter or GoodReads page).*

If You’re Not In, but Want to Support:

1.Check out the blogs that are participating below in the Mr. Linky list.

3.Add to your own TBRs as you see what others are reading!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I think the read-a-thon is more about the effort and not so much the amount. At least that's what I tell myself! Good luck! And thanks for dropping by my blog! Happy Reading!
