In the past I’ve always loved a good read-a-thon, so when I checked my Google Reader this morning and saw many, many blogs alight with #WWReadathon… Well, I just couldn’t resist! A huge plus is that the storm that’s supposed to hit for the next two days is going to free up a lot of my schedule so I can start off with a bang!

About the Read-a-thon:

The Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-thon lasts from Feb 7-14 and is all about reading as much as possible in that time. Anyone can participate, even if you only have one day to dedicate to reading! There’s more information about the ‘thon itself and the different mini-challenges and such for anyone interested here!

My Goals:

Okay, so I’d like to say that I’m totally going to power through this HUGE pile of books sitting on my desk in the next week and get a bunch reviews written or started before the read-a-thon is over, but I have to be realistic. I’ve got a research paper calling my name and a bunch of other homework and I can’t totally neglect all that much as I might wish to. So… my tentative goals:

  • Finish Phantoms in the Brain!!
  • Read two of the four books I got this week in the review catch-up from long ago category
  • Read the first book in the Mistborn trilogy
  • Read second book in the Chronicles of Narnia

I think that’s a pretty reasonable goal for myself, but of course, I’ll do updates throughout the week.

Happy Reading!!!

    This sounds like fun! I may have to sign up since we’re expecting to be snowed in tomorrow.
    Happy reading 🙂

      To you as well! We’re getting the same thing, lots of snow. I’m pretty sure everything in my state is closed, lol. Definitely a perfect reading day!

    I am a first time participant in the Read-a-thon and love that this has mini-challenges along the way! Look forward to seeing what you read this week!
