  4. I'd love to participate. I keep saying that I want to do a read-a-thon, and this is the perfect opportunity, because I'll have to go back to work with a vengeance, once Sept. starts.

  5. I am totally in! Now I gotta think of some good books to read. :-) Maybe... Catching FIRE?! Oh oh and my copy of The Ask And The Answer is supposed to be in my hands by then. *sigh* I know what I will be doing today, making my potential readathon books list!

  6. That weekend is super busy for me but I'll try to get some extra reading in! And I'm sharing about this on my blog over the weekend so hopefully you'll get some additional participants. :)

  9. I really think I might join you. I've never participated in a read-a-thon and was thinking about taking a break to do this personally. So great timing!

  10. This is soooo exciting! I've got a significant reading pile I'm plowing through, so I'll be joining you from Australia :-)

  11. Fun idea and this will really spur me to read some of the things that have been sitting on my bookshelves for too long

  12. what exactly does "your own books" mean? The ones we own? or just ones of our own choosing?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, I have plenty of my own books to read! It's hard to read on the weekends with all the stuff going on, but I think I'll sign up anyway and just do my best.

  21. This could not have come at a better time for me!! I am right now cataloging all of the books on my shelves so that I will know what I have. And because hubs says I can't buy any more books until I know what I already have. lol This is the push I need!!

  22. I'm a sucker for a read - a - thon, I look forward to reading with you guys =o)

  23. This is the perfect timing for a read-a-thon! School starts back up soon and I won't have as much time to read come September. Next weekend is pretty much open except for when my sis leaves for study abroad. So I'll be doing my reading around her goodbye (and hopefully reading away some of the tears from missing her so much!).

  24. This is the perfect read-a-thon because you have to read your own books. A nice break from review books. Don't get me wrong...I love review books, but I have so many books of my own and so many challenges to complete. This is going to really help me out a lot. Thanks Monica for hosting!

  25. So I definitely thought that marathon was this weekend and started reading my marathon book (s). This makes me somewhat sad, as I got all the way through Catching Fire which was awesome, but I wish I read this during actual readathon because the wait for Mockingjay would be shorter. Oh well, you know I am def in!

  26. I've never done a read-a-thon before, but this sounds fun!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am always looking for incentive to read more! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sounds like a lot of fun. :) And this will be my last weekend before going to college, so a Read-a-thon is exactly what would make it even better!

  29. I'm so glad you are hosting this! I was hoping I'd find a read-a-thon for around this time, because I'm off school. :)

    Can't wait!

  30. Thanks for hosting this! I love read-a-thons!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I so majorly want to join in, but I don't know how my weekend will be! It's killing me!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sounds fun! I'm never done a read-a-thon before, so I hope I'll be able to read my little heart out this weekend. :D

  33. Count me in! I'm forever trying to reduce the size of my TBR pile!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I figured I would join even if I have a huge amount of TBR sent to me...The ones I bought are aching to be read. ACHING.

    Thanks for hosting the challenge! :D

  35. I love this idea! I can't read that whole time unfortunately, but it does give me a push to read my Own-To-Read pile instead of the Rented-To-Read pile, which always seems to be read first.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Where do we find the mini challenges now that we've started???

    ReplyDelete
  37. That was fun. The readathon gave me several ideas for blog posts.
