    I wish you lots of fun! I won’t participate, as I always read my own books, and only occasionally accept a review book πŸ™‚ It is fun, books you bought yourself as you really wanted to read them!

    I think I can do this one! I never seem to be able to participate in Dewey but this one comes at a perfect timing! I’ll have to go over my schedule to be sure but I’m excited!

    As many books as I can in 24 hours…..I might get one…and that is a big MIGHT…. Did I miss something about another take control read a thon? My online activity has been very off lately…that silly thing called “life” keeps getting in my way. BTW I listened to The Night Walker…OMG! It was soooo good. I liked it so much I went and bought another book of his with the same narrator when I was done. “You’re killing me smalls”…hehehehe

    Thanks for creating this read-a-thon. I may not be able to do the Dewey one next month, so this should help me wrangle the great and powerful TBR pile…at least for this month.

    I am so excited for this!!!! I think I’m going to make a TBR for Saturday tomorrow. Plan it out. And get snacks so I’m ready to read and not do anything else for a day because that sounds like nirvana. Thanks so much for arranging this, Kimba!

    Not sure how much reading time I will have, because I’m going out with friends in the late morning/early afternoon, but I should have time on the train, and some time at night-I can’t resist a readathon!
