Thankfully Reading Weekend, 2011 Edition!

November 12, 2011 Thankfully Reading Weekend 64

In just two weeks, the third annual Thankfully Reading Weekend will commence!  Just what is this weekend I speak of?!

Two years ago,  with the help of Candace from Beth FishReads and Jen from Devourer of Books , Thankfully Reading was born! An excuse to do an obscene amount of reading over the long Thanksgiving weekend!

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 2011. 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, you can sign up 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 25. 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 or sponsoring a giveaway, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jennsbookshelfATgmailDOTcom.

    I’ll try to participate as much as possible, though Saturday I may be in and out of the house.

    Trying to decide what to read next…hoping this weekend will help me knock out several partially finished books…including Cold Mountain (check), Bossypants, The Children of Henry VIII, and Starting from Scratch :)

    I’m looking forward to a Thanksgiving weekend filled with books! :) I paid a visit to my local indie bookstore yesterday and brought home 14 new books. I doubt I’ll get through all or even most of them this weekend, but I’ll do my best!
    This weekend my book club (Virtual Book Club) is also finishing our November book, Tatiana DeRosnay’s “Sarah’s Key.”
    I am also reading Stephen King’s new book “11/22/63.”
    I look forward to hearing more about everyone’s reading adventures!
