The Kickback and Relax Read-a-Thon!

I mentioned in my first post that I had something fun planned to celebrate the start of my new book blog, and here is the post I promised!

In order to celebrate my brand new blog, what better way than to kick back, relax and read with a read-a-thon?! We all love to read, it's summer and we can all use the time to relax and dive into as many books as we can get our hands on.

Besides, if you're like me - you've got a stack you want to get through this summer!

Starting June 29, 2012 through  July 6, I'm inviting you to pile up a stack of books, grab some snacks and read! 

Here is where you come in - I want you (yes, you!) to join me in this ten day read-a-thon. I want you tell me what you read, what your goal number is and hang out here and chat with me about the books you're reading.

Each day I'll post an entry inviting you to tell us what you're reading, what you're enjoying about the book (or on the flip side, not enjoying about the book) and to just hang out and relax. I'll also ask you to give us an update on the goal you've set.

So, who is in this with me? Leave a comment with a link to your blog, say hello, set yourself a goal number and settle in to hang out!

I'll make another entry for this shortly where I'll post links to everyone who is participating and open up a little discussion so we can get to know each other, talk about our goals, etc. 

I'm really looking forward to this and I hope you are, too!

  3. My book blog is here: http://thesecretsofthefire.tumblr.com
    I need to pick a goal and books, so once I do, I'll post it both there and in a comment here.

    This was a fabulous idea Katie!
