The Big Game’s On Read-a-Thon: 2016 Edition

January 27, 2016 The Big Game's On! Read-a-thon! 2


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.

    This is one of the first years I have absolutely no desire to watch the game, the halftime show, or the commercials. If I have my way, we will be watching movies, but reading sounds just as good.
