I am determined to read 100 books this year. In looking at my reading patterns on Goodreads, I discovered that I read on pace up until September. Then, I tend to fall off. My plan this year? Front load.
I am trying to reach my 100-book goal by the end of August. Or at the very least, read as many as I can by then so that I can coast during the remaining months of 2013. I have found Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon and Bout of Books 7.0 Read-a-Thon helpful in keeping up my pace and motivation.
So I have decided to join the Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon to keep things moving along.
Won’t you join me?
The Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the days of June 7-14 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun!
In the meanwhile, we will be hosting book-related challenges where you can win some awesome prizes and have a Twitter party at the hashtag #WWReadathon! You can posts updates on your blog, Twitter, Goodreads or Facebook — as long as the profile is public and we all can enjoy your reading progress! – My Shelf Confessions
I’ll post my all of my Wicked Wildfire updates to this page (on my MAD Hoydenish blog) . Please drop by that blog post during the week to offer encouragement, say hello, discuss these books, or just peep at my status updates.
