Thankfully Reading Weekend 2012

Don’t shoot the messenger, but Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. I’m pleased to announce that I will once again be hosting Thankfullly Reading Weekend, November 22-25! Want to avoid the crowds & shopping on Black Friday? Plan on spending a nice, quiet holiday at home? Join us!  This year, Jennifer from Literate Housewife is joining me as my partner in crime.

Just what is this Thankfully Reading Weekend I speak of?  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 2012. 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 add your sign in post to the link-up below. If you don’t have a blog, you can sign up the comments!

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!

Once again 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.

Interested in participating? Sign up below.  More details to come.

  1. Sounds like a good idea. I am usually avoiding Black Friday shopping like the plague and staying inside with hot cocoa or tea and a book anyway, why not make it official? :)



  2. I’m in. I will be at my folks’ house with only my 3 year old, so I should get plenty of uninterrupted reading time while she is entertained by the grandparents! I am woefully behind on my reading challenge for 2012, and this could help me make a serious dent.


  3. Count me in! I don’t think we will be doing much that weekend at all, and since I am taking off the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving, I am hoping to devote the entire weekend to relaxing and reading. If I can use a blogging event as an excuse/explanation for my husband, then I am all for it!


  4. This sounds like a fantastic idea! I think I shall join. I am not sure exactly what the Thanksgiving plans are. People keep threatening to do something different this year. But any opportunity to say “No, I’m participating in a reading thing” is good enough for me.

  7. I hate shopping crowds, always get stepped on or pushed aside, the idea gives me a migraine. So I would like to join your stress free thankful Reading Weekend.

  9. Count me in! I am off work Wednesday through the weekend so I’m looking forward to getting as many books read as possible. I want to finish “The Age of Miracles” and “The Art of Fielding.”

  13. Read a Harlequin and finished this morning. But the rest of the day been cooking, cleaning, clearing, and storing. Ugh! About to go and read in a few minutes in bed before passing out for the night, I think. Tweeted a few times with the handle tag #thankfulreading

  15. I finished ‘The Aviator’s Wife at 12:03 a.m. The book would not let me go!!! Now back to ‘Vienna Prelude’ for a chunk. It has very small print so will switch to another book later. Trying to prevent eyestrain.

  17. I am slowly reading “Vienna Prelude”. It has tiny print!!!! Only on page 62 so will just read a tad and then start “What I Saw and How I Lied” by
    Judy Blundell, one of my favorite authors.


  18. Now on page 103 of the Prelude book and finished “What I Saw and How I Lied”.

    Loved this readathon! Will you do it again next year?
