Last week I wrote THIS POST about how I am not ready to relinquish 2010 yet, and I still have books that I want to read before the year ends. I even highlighted 6 books that I really want to add to my "read in 2010" book list. Then, a few days later, I opened up my Google Reader and saw a blogger posting about the Out With A Bang Read-A-Thon. Apparently, I am not the only one who thought the same way!
Credit goes to the The Bookish Type and Book-Savvy bloggers for organizing this read-a-thon.
From The Bookish Type's blog: 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:
The Nerd's Wife
The Book Worms
Loud Words and Sounds
A Writer's Review
Books, Sweets and Other Treats
The Novel Affair
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!
See you there!
