Last Minute Reading: Read-a-thon Kick Off!

Merry Christmas to all of my fellow blogger followers and a very happy day to those that don't celebrate!

The Last Minute Reading: Read-a-thon will begin tomorrow. This is the kick-off link so there is still time to sign-up.

This read-a-thon is to encourage those who are trying to reach their year's reading goals in the last minute, knock off some of their TBR books, and/or simply want to have fun by challenging themselves to some good reading before the year ends.

This read-a-thon will be from December 26th to December 30th. I know this is a very busy time of year with all of the holiday celebrations but many of us are doing last minute things in between holidays, especially reading. I hope this event will help encourage you to achieve your goals!

If you haven't yet, make sure you sign up below!
Also, those that are participating may enter the chance to win a $10 GC to Amazon or a book up to $10 from Book Depository!

Here are my goals for these next 5 days:

What are your reading plans?


  1. I will be starting soon!! Just finishing up a review book really quick. Can't wait! :)

  2. I'm going to work on finishing I Captured The Castle and At Drake's command. Then head back my in-progress reads

    1. Yay! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's going to read I Captured the Castle. No one has participated in the discussion link in Bibliophile.

  3. Good luck everybody with the Challenge. Hope you will be able to reach your goals for 2012.

  4. Just started! I am very excited to read as much as possible!

  5. Hey, Vonnie!

    This is such a GREAT idea!! Hope you do this again next year! I have only two books myself, and the first one is nearly done, because I had started it a couple of days before this read-a-thon. I have to start the second one from the beginning, though.

    I figured I shouldn't pick too many books, since I'm a slow reader, to begin with. Also, I don't have that much free time available. I should be able to get these two done, though -- I'm on vacation this week.

    Of the books you're picked, I'm especially interested in "I Capture the Castle" and "Heal My Heart, Lord". I've already added them to my Goodreads TBR shelf.

    Good luck to everyone with this read-a-thon!! And a very Happy New Year to you all!! : )

    1. I will most likely do this next year as well. I'm super excited that people are joining in with my crazyness when it comes to reading.

      Don't worry if you are not reading as many books. You go at your own pace. I'm just happy to see you joining us :)

      Oh, I'm SO happy you're planning to do this next year, as well! It's a GREAT idea for a book challenge, and I appreciate your hosting it!!

      I'm also happy that participants can go at their own pace. So thanks for welcoming me, because I'm just as excited about this as you are!!

      Also, thanks for the FAB giveaway!! :)
