    AWESOME! Read-a-thons are fun even though I’m never quite as productive as I want to be. I fail. Love that graphic though, his face just makes me smile. Good luck to all who participate!

    I wish I could participate because my TBR is in need of some mad clean-up. I was updating my posting calendar this morning (I have a similar set-up to yours BTW, I silently stalked your last blogger tips post!) and realized that I have enough ARCs lined-up to last me ’til April and then the busy summer release season starts shortly after that. I had a mini panic attack but then I went and requested a few more titles. LOL *face palm* Good luck with your read-a-thon! πŸ™‚

    This is great!! I don’t think I’ll be able to participate during the whole month of March as I’ll have midterms then but I think I can make room for two-three days so count me in. Thanks for hosting Kim πŸ™‚

    OK, this week was slow reading, but I guess I can still go for the readathon. I’m confused – do I need to hit another button to join, or is it the same as the reading challenge that I already signed up for?

    • kimbacaffeinate

      Yes it is separate with a separate prize, although the books you read count for the monthly challenge. The first year I did monthly challenge peeps asked for a read-a-thon to help motivate them and others wanted a smaller challenge. So you can do one or both. LOL

        OK, I may be a dumas, but I can’t figure out how to add my name to the read-a-thon. πŸ™

          LOL, ok click add link. If you do not have a blog use your Goodreads or Facebook profile URL then add your name and email address.

            Got it! I added GR link. Now I just need to remember the read-a-thon dates! πŸ™‚
