The Big Game’s On Read-a-thon, 2013 Edition!

It’s been a few years, but I thought it high-time to reincarnate the great Big Game’s On Read-a-thon!

Following is the original announcement from 2011:

It’s not rare for me to come up with excuses reasons to spend obscene  amounts of time reading.  With Superbowl Sunday just around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to curl up with a good book, or two.  I’m not a huge fan of football, and while I love the commercials & the food, I’d rather be reading!

Then, while talking on Twitter, other book bloggers  indicated an interest in participating! A read-a-thon was born!  Thanks to Florinda, we now have a fantastic name:

The details:

  • No rules, no guidelines, just read
  • No start/end times, just read at your leisure.
  • Mini-challenges will be created to break up your reading time. Participating in these challenges is not mandatory, but you will be eligible for a number of great prizes!

To sign up, link up below. I will create a separate kick-off link-up on Superbowl Sunday for all participants as well! No blog? Feel free to sign up directly in the comments section.

Interested in hosting a mini-challenge or donating a prize? Email me at jennsbookshelfATgmailDOTcom.

    Sounds perfect, not interested in the game. I know there are no rules but any ideas…..how many can we read or read 2 genres, i’ve never done this before.

    Count me in, for at least part of the time. My official sign up/kick off post will be my Sunday Salon post tomorrow. Thanks for bringing this back!

    Not sure if I’ll blog today, but I’m definitely reading! Got three new books at the Strand and want to read them ALL AT ONCE.

    I wish so badly that I had known about this. What a great event on what is normally an excruciatingly boring day. Enjoy the event!
