Welcome to the second annual Take Control of Your TBR Readathon. You can see official details and sign up to participate here: Take Control 24 hour Thon.

The goal is to read or listen to as many books from your TBR pile as you can during the next 24 hours. Officially the readathon runs from Midnight to midnight of the 18th, but you can move your 24 hours around to work for you. (Start at 6 am and end at 6 am Sunday morning etc.)  Join for the day, a few hours or get caffeinated and go the distance!  I am personally starting at 10 am Saturday and have stocked up on caffeine.

I’ve got some fun challenges to keep your spirits up. All are open from 10 am Saturday until 10 pm Saturday. Winners will be notified on Sunday.

For those participating in the month long Take Control Challenge you will get an extra entry for participating today.

    So excited it has started! Except I have already been up all day so I will likely have to nap after just the first couple hours. But we shall see how it goes.

        I would have but I have to work really early Sunday morning so figured it is better to just get started and take a nap or two and turn in at a reasonable hour. This might actually help me since I normally work days-late nights and my shift change to morning sis just about to start so good timing to force re-adjust my sleep habits. 🙂

    Well today is going to be busier than I realized when I initially signed up, but we’ll see how much reading I can get in! Unfortunately, most of the books I read will probably be ARCS that are being published AFTER March 1. I don’t know if that was a requirement for the readathon too, but I’m a bit behind on March/April arcs and need to really focus on those.
