Thankfully Reading, the 2010 Edition!

Last Thanksgiving, Candace from Beth Fish Reads, Jen from Devourer of Books & I unveiled Thankfully Reading, an excuse to do an obscene amount of reading over the long Thanksgiving weekend.  I’m excited to announce that we’ll be doing the event again this year!

Here are the details:

There are no rules to the weekend, we’re simply hoping to devote a good amount of time to reading, and perhaps meeting some of our reading challenges and goals for 2010. We thought it’d be fun if we cheered each other on a bit. If you think you can join in, grab the button  and sign on to Mr. Linky. If you don’t have a blog, use the comments!

During the weekend, come back and link any Thankfully Reading Weekend posts to the Mr. Linky we’ll put up here on Friday, November 26. Feel free to link as many posts as you’d like. On Sunday will put up another Mr. Linky for your wrap-up post.

We’ll also be checking in on Twitter using hashtag #thankfulreading. Join in for the weekend or for only a single day. No rules, no pressure!

This year, we will be doing some fun Thankfully Reading mini-challenges over the weekend.  Be sure to check back Thanksgiving weekend for more details!

If you are interested in hosting your own Thankfully Reading mini-challenge, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jennsbookshelfATgmailDOTcom.

*Edit: Each participant of Thankfully Reading Weekend will receive a copy of Shelf Unbound, a new digital monthly magazine featuring the best of small press, university press, and self-published books!

So, if you are interested in participating, please sign up with the Mr. Linky below!

  5. I just signed up! My goal (not that we need one, but this is just how I roll) is to finish up the latter half of the Betsy-Tacy series, as well as hopefully get to a few other books.

    I don’t have a blog so I’m using my Twitter account. Hope that’s okay!

  6. I’m so in! I have SO much to read this weekend and I must must set the next four days to just reading. Let the boys hit the malls. I’m sitting on the couch with my puppies and books! :O)
