Note: This time of year is always very busy for me. Last year, I hadn't really started blogging yet, so I was able to keep myself above the craziness. This year, I am. My blog is slightly inactive due to the holiday craze. Hopefully will return to the regular posting after the new year. :)

It's here...Readathon!

    Guys, I'm super excited! It's here! *happy dance*
    I'm sorry to say that I may not get to participate as much as I want to. Two days ago, my laptop charger decided to throw a hissy fit and doesn't charge my laptop anymore. But I may be able to get on my dad's computer, what I'm on now, and be able to participate fully through here. If not, I will be on Twitter, using the hashtag.
    But, even if I'm not here, feel free to use the chat. It's on the pages, at the top. Please be respectful in the chat room. No one wants to here you yell and curse at them, or anyone else for that matter.
    Also, since we're giving prizes out for the most read and the longest read, when you finish something, please leave a comment on this post. Just tell me what you finished. If the name your commenting with isn't the same thing as what you signed up with, please put the name you signed up with in your comment. If I can't figure out who you are, then I'm just going to go to the next person.
    The trivia, as of now, is going to be on twitter. That's the main way to win prizes, so unless you're going to read the longest or the most, you should participate on twitter! I promise, you aren't going to get stalked unless you tweet things like, "MY ADDRESS IS _____" or "I GO TO SCHOOL HERE! _____"
    If you're going to participate in the trivia, then make sure you follow us! It starts at Noon, PST.

    Brielle
    Tiffany
    Jaime
    Patricia
    Rachel


    I hope you guys have fun with this! I sure will. :)

Just finished Cycler by Lauren McLaughlin...Now at 5 books and have been reading for 20 hours so far...

bookvacations said...

My 24 hours are up, so I thought I'd just recap:

I read:

The Kult by Shaun Jefferey -- 328 pages

Treasures at the Museum by Deborra Richardson -- 64 pages

An Apple For Zoe The Forsaken by Thomas Amo -- 300 pages maybe? I can't find anyone who can tell me the actual page length for the novel, I just know it was a longer read than I expected.

Hate List by Jennifer Brown -- 205 pages (I read the first 211 page prior to the start of the readathon, so only half of this book counts)

So I maybe read close to 900 pages. The longest I was able to read in one sitting was 6 hours. :(

Next time #epicreadathon, next time!
