The Dewey’s Readathon happens every April and October, and while I intend to participate in both… it doesn’t always work out that way with schedules. Last year fell on my actual birthday, and it’s on the birthday weekend in this year’s case) What do I want to do for my birthday? Nothing but get through some […]

What better way to enjoy a relaxing birthday than to participate in the bi-annual Dewey’s Readathon! I had participated in 2011 & 2012 October. It’s always a great time, having cheerleaders motivate you along and participating in hourly mini-challenges to win prizes! This year, I’ll probably be participating for most of it – minus the […]

So thanks to Brenna @ Esther’s Ever After for reminding me, I have now signed on to participate in my first readathon of 2013: this week’s Bout of Books readathon… albeit a day late.

It’s that time of year again… time to tackle that toppling pile of books I’ve been “meaning to get to” for AGES. The readathon happens in October and April, and while I was away in Paris in April and missed it, I did participate in the one last October. It’s always a great time, having […]

Wrap-Up: Random House Canada’s #OlympicReadathon

Well, I had set my goal back on July 23rd to hit 1000 pages. I think I should have aimed a little higher, because I didn’t realize how good the books I picked up were going to be and how quickly I’d fly through them! Dates Title # of Pages July 27-29 The Unlikely Pilgrimage […]

NetGalley January Readathon Wrap-Up

Hosted by Emily @ Red House Books, this is/was a great way to get through the large to-read pile of Netgalley titles! As indicated in my declaration post for this January readathon, I had a selection of 5 NG titles that I pledged to read. I got through 3/5 that I had said I would, […]

362/365: NetGalley January Read-a-thon

After participating in the October Netgalley readathon (albeit only mildly successfully w/just a couple of books…), I definitely wanted to do it again this January! Hosted by Emily @ Red House Books, this is a great way to get through the large to-read pile of Netgalley titles! Since I’m also participating in the 2012 Debut Author […]

295/365: Dewey’s Read-a-Thon

Today is the day… Dewey’s (twice-a-year, 24-hour) Read-a-Thon! I first heard about this only earlier in the week when several fellow book bloggers were talking about having signed up for the readathon. Of course, I was intrigued – and inspired – that this would be a perfect way to buckle down and get through a […]

276/365: NetGalley October Read-a-thon

What a (much-needed) fantastic idea from Red House Books… do a read-a-thon to catch up on all our review titles we get from NetGalley for the month of October. Short of finishing up one book I received for review, plus another for a blog tour mid-month, I can be solely dedicated to my NetGalley selection […]
