Second Annual Holiday #Readathon Update Post

You know me! I can't say no to a read-a-thon! I've signed up and so can you! Just click on the button and go at it!

There are tons of challenges and even a very special one! The mini-challenge set up by the hostess of the 'thon, Liza Wiemer, is hosting a challenge that goes like this:

1. Pledge a penny or two or three (or any amount you want!) per page that you read. Put a minimum number that you will pledge. For example: 100 pages – $1.00. And then donate the amount to your favorite charity.
2. ANY type of donation for the holiday season – a can(s) of food, book to a library, Toy for Tots, gently used books or clothes donated to a shelter, school – qualifies. Just list it. (Feel free to come up with your own ideas!)

..Isn't that awesome? I'm going to try and do both. I think this is an awesome way to help out the community and spread good cheer!

So far there seems to be about 15 other challenges so there's bound to be something awesome for you!

My Goals:
  1. Participate in at least 5 challenges
  2. Read at LEAST two books! 
  3. Participate in the chat on Twitter (#readathon)
  4. Oh yeah! Have fun! 
My books:
  • Plague of the Dead
  • Black and Orange
  • Arcadia
  • Dust and Decay
  • The Night Eternal
Some people have started a bit early so I'm going to hop on that bandwagon right now! I won't be able to stay up too long, but I will get some reading squeezed in!
