I know that I’m already crazy with the number of books I have chosen to read these last few months, but I have now decided to participate in a new Readathon put on by Jenny from Juliababyjen’s Reading Room and Dana from DanaSquare.
The Read-a-Thon goes from December 9th to December 22nd.
I decided I should enter because I really want to support these two with their first read-a-thon and also because I have a number of books on my TBR pile and I promised myself that I wouldn’t buy more until at least half of them are read.
Why should you participate? Well,
(1) To decrease that ever growing TBR pile of yours
(2) Do the fun challenges and win some awesome prizes
(3) Encourage others to read like a speed demon (and yourself) + reading with others is loads of fun.
Requirements of the Read-a-Thon:
You must post a Sign Up Post (and Link it on their Signup Page)
Must have their graphic displayed
Link to their blogs
Name and dates of the read-a-thon
Any personal goals (optional)
You can put up your posts on your blog, Tumblr, or Youtube (if you don’t have a blog)
