Out with a Bang Readathon





Hello fellow bookworms! The year 2010 is coming to a close, and many of us probably still have several books on our 2010 to-be-read piles that we just haven't gotten to yet -- especially Debut Author Challenge books! That's why Heather at Book-Savvy and I wanted to host the Out with a Bang Readathon!

The Readathon will run from December 29 - 31 and participants will be reading as many books as they can during that time! This Readathon is mainly to finish off the fabulous debuts for the Debut Author Challenge, but participants don't have to focus on that category if they have non-debut books that they would like to finish before 2010 ends.

And, if you need an extra incentive to participate, we'll also be giving away tons of swag and books during the Readathon (and a lot of it will be signed!)

Several awesome authors have been kind enough to donate items! I will do a special thank you post once we have all the details so that I don't miss anyone!

Heather and I will be hosting giveaways during the event, and there will also be fun daily Mini-Challenges, hosted by the following fabulous bloggers:

December 29


December 30


December 31


Thanks SO much to the authors and bloggers who are making this event possible!

It's not too late to donate or to sign up to host a challenge. If you're interested, just email me!

So, does this sound like fun? If you would like to participate in the Out with a Bang Readathon, simply sign up in the linky below! (No need to sign up on both host sites -- it's the same linky list.)

Hi - I would be happy to add your linky to my blog "Family Literacy" and highlight books I've read in the last year. And I'll see if I can get some giveaways to add to it.

Please put me on your newsletter list for this event.

I'm going to go post now!

Can't think of a better way to spend the last few day of 2010 and to see the new year in than reading!

Last read-a-thon of the year...I thought readathon season was over. you can totally count me in, especially since it overlaps my b-day. ^_^

This is just what I've been looking for! I found out about it at 'A Novel Challenge' so thanks for posting there :)

I'm in! And in my excitement, I just left my blog url instead of a link to a post (which I will do soon.)

We never have any grandiose New Year's plans, so a Read-a-Thon is just perfect!

Casey (The Bookish Type) said...

Thank you all so much for your interest! We were hoping it would be during a time when most people were off from school/work =) Can't wait!

Just what my class and I have been looking for! I just took the Twitter challenge of a book a day during break-I like the idea of 2 challenges at once.
If anyone wants to donate their finished books to our class library, contact us at http://spottoread.blogspot.com
Thanks and happy reading!

This is great! I want to start the new year all caught up on books so this will definitely help me :)

Alison said...

I just signed up. I don't know how much reading I'll get done over the next few days, but I think it will be fun!

What a GREAT idea! Just found out about this today (29th) and won't be able to commit fully, but I'll try to read as much as possible in my book group's December read: Caos Calmo, by Sandro Veronesi. No debut ;)

Wishing all participants a blast!

Thanks for hosting a great read-a-thon! I really needed a jump start to get finished with a few books that need to be reviewed - this is great!
I posted at the Wormhole!
