Welcome to the second annual 24 hr TAKE CONTROL readathon. This event began as a motivational weekend for those participating in March Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge. However, anyone can join. All you need is a pile of books, an eReader, or audiobooks released before March 1, 2017.

The idea of this thon is to read only books from your TBR pile for 24 hours. You can choose to read during the daylight hours or you can get jacked up on Caffeine and go the distance.ย The idea is to have fun, reduce your TBR pile and make new friends.

  • Link-up (use your blog or any social media account) You do not have to be a blogger to join.
  • Read/listen to books from your TBR pile. Must be published before March 1, 2017
  • Official time 12 midnight to 11:59 pm March 18th. Challenges are from 10 am to 10 pm on 18th. However, you can begin later and end later. (example: 10 am Saturday to 10 am Sunday)

It’s always fun when friends join, so spread the word…

    Oh dang! I saw this and thought, dangit, I’m going to participate this time! But alas, the 18th is my anniversary and along with my younger daughter performing in the pit orchestra for the high school musical that day, my older daughter is heading back to college since her spring break will be ending, AND Hubs and I are planning a night out in downtown Denver. So I don’t think I have time. :/ Maybe next year I can do this one day RAT. I do plan on doing the challenge though. ๐Ÿ™‚
