Last Minute/Impromptu Readathon

Posted September 30, 2011 by Asheley in Uncategorized / 4 Comments

I do love a Readathon. 
Not so much for all the challenges & all that time-consuming stuff… 
but because I usually have a million things I need to read 
 and I lack the time and/or the motivation to get it all done
Friends, there is not much in this world better than
reading and knowing that your pals are reading right along with you
at the same time. 
When I saw that April @ Good Books and Good Wine 
decided to pull together a little Impromptu Readathon
I almost did a little dancey-dance. 
Because I have so many great things I want to read 
and barely enough time to read them all. 
BUT…knowing that some of my blogger pals are 
reading along with me is the best motivation out there
So, I’m totally playing along. 

Here’s the deal: 
The Readathon is running from 9/28 until 10/3. 
No contests, challenges, or any of that stuff. 
Just reading. Read hard. Read a lot.
Twitter hashtag (I think): #LMReadathon
I don’t do well with lists. 
So it wouldn’t do me well to list out what I plan to read. 
However, I’d like to get through these ARC’s and books… 
and about 100 of the galleys and books on my Kindle. 
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
(lots more on my Kindle, not pictured)

Why don’t we just do it like this: 
I’ll let y’all know later which ones I actually make it through. 
I do know it’ll be a combination of some pictured here and 
some that aren’t pictured here. 
Thanks April!! 
I’m so excited you decided to throw this together 
at the LAST MINUTE!!!

  1. When are you starting Outlander?! I've wanted to read that series, but it scares the crap out of me! Just like Game of Thrones does, which I still have started and not finished…I'm horrible! I downloaded Outlander awhile back on my Kindle because it was free 🙂

  2. Hello there! I'm Jennifer, fellow poly-reader who found you through The Pepertual Page-Turner. We seem to have a lot of book tastes in common, and I'm looking forward to when my little girl gets into the "listened reading" stage that your kids are in now. My mom read out loud to my brother and I, too, and I think it's so important. I enjoy your blog, and have sent you a friend request on Goodreads, if that's okay. I'd be thrilled to have you check out my blog (The Beauty of Eclecticism) and maybe join my first ever attempt to host a reading challenge, which starts on the 5th. Either way, you have a lovely blog, and I'm following it now.
    Peace and blessings,
