Are you a little short on that 2012 Goodreads reading goal? Maybe there's a few last books that you really meant to read this year but never got around to it? Want to meet some new friends who love to read?
I say yes, yes, and yes!
Patrick @ The Bookshelves, Eileen @ Singing and Reading in the Rain and I are hosting a LAST READS OF 2012 READATHON!
We hope this event will inspire you to achieve any and all last reading goals of the year. Maybe there's just one book you want to finish or maybe you've got a whole stack. How much you read and what you read is completely up to you. You can join us for as many days as you want and you don't have to be a blogger to participate.
Keep the group posted on your progress through Goodreads updates and/or Twitter -- we will be tweeting with hashtag #LR2012.
Here's how you can join us:
Sign up to participate in the readathon. You can do that in the linky below. Please link to your blog if you have one, or to your Twitter account or Goodreads profile if you aren't a blogger. You can sign up on any of our blogs -- the linky will automatically update on all three.
If you want to write up a post with your goals, or just decorate your sidebar, you can also grab our pretty button (designed by Eileen!) here:
On Tuesday December 17 I'll post a list of challenges that readathon participants can join. You can do as many or as few challenges as you want. I'm hosting "I Laughed, I Cried" and will be challenging you to name the funniest and saddest books you read this year.
We are also looking for LR 2012 Challenge Hosts. Eileen has come up with some great challenges you can host -- or come up your own.
If you'd like to sign up to host a challenge, please fill out the Google Doc below and Eileen will get back to you. If you have questions about hosting, please put them in the Google Doc. Challenge hosts should also sign up for the readathon in the linky above!
