Once Upon A Read-A-Thon- kick off post

So today is the first day of the annual Once Upon a Read-A-Thon hosted by Candace of Candace's Book Blog, Lori of Pure Imagination, and Angela from Reading Angel. It runs from today (Monday July 9th) until Wednesday 11th July, and the aim is try to read more over these dates you do in a normal week.
It is also a chance for us to network with other bloggers, maybe discover some new book blogs to follow, to find new books to read, and to have fun taking part in the challenges every day.

I think I will struggle to read more than normal since I'm reading most of my spare time anyway- I work full time and don't usually get home until 6pm, then there's dinner, shopping, calls home etc... but I will TRY!

At the start of the read-a-thon my reading status is:

(Paperback) Bloodlines by Richelle Mead 252/421 pages
(Kindle) Dearly, Beloved by Lia Habel 33%
(Audiobook) Changeling by Philippa Gregory 3hrs 45mins/ 6hrs 44 mins

My goal over the next three days is just to finish these 3 books!

Right, I'm off to read...

Challenge starts... and GO!

  1. Love Richelle Mead! I've been slowly making my way through the Vampire Academy series. Oo Changeling. That one's been on my TBR list for awhile.

    Good luck! :)

  2. I hadn't thought of including an audiobook, I have quite a few of those on my TBR pile...I might sneak one of those in and hit the treadmill tomorrow. Great motivation!

    I hope you meet your reading goals and happy reading! :]

  3. Good luck! I'm having the same trouble; a read-a-thon during the week is hard with work.
