Here’s the official blurb from the blog:

I will be giving daily updates on my Twitter account as to how I’m doing, how much I’ve read, etc. I will also try to post daily here, as well, to give an idea of how I’m doing and all of that.
I’m also going to try to participate in the challenges that are being held. For a list of the challenges/giveaways/Twitter chats, here’s the list below:

If you want to participate in this fun, relaxed readathon, be sure to sign up by Wednesday night!
As for my TBR… I’m going to try to read a bunch of books at one time. I’ve been trying to for the past week or so, and even though one books has my attention more than the others, my goal is to read at least one chapter from at least two of the books listed below per day.
So, what I plan on reading:
- “The Final Empire” by Brandon Sanderson
- “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” by J.K. Rowling
- “A Game of Thrones” by George R.R. Martin
- “A Thousand Pieces of You” by Claudia Gray
Ambitious pile, right? That’s why I’m only aiming for one chapter per book per day, or whatever I can manage to do.
Let me know if you’re participating in the readathon! I’d love to know what book(s) you’ll be reading this week!
