Jayne's Books announced her first read-a-thon, the Time to Relax Read-A-Thon. Melissa is relatively new to the book blogging community and I told her I would help her get the word out...and, of course, I'm also participating. She needed a button as well so I made her a nice cozy button for the event (see above). Since another read-a-thon was announced just last week for the same weekend (actually December 2 through 5), the hashtag we will use on Twitter is #timetorelax.
This is a simple as (pumpkin) pie read-a-thon...a nice, relaxing weekend of reading. Here are the details from Melissa:
I am officially announcing my first readathon. It will be taking place on December 4 & 5 and will not have a specific time limit. You can read for as much or as little as you wish to.
One thing I would like for people to do is to donate either some money or toys to your local Christmas Bureau. You can donate as much or as little as you wish to.
Also note, this is being done for the pure enjoyment of reading over a couple of days, while the hectic Christmas season is under way, and to take some time to enjoy a book.
