It is this saturday. I will be doing it, reading as much as possible. The last time around half way through I had to get stricked with myself, here was my pep talk: " seriously, you are blogging and commenting more than you are reading! this is a READ-a-thon not a CHAT-a-thon! If you blog for 20 minutes of every hour, that is a LOT. Get with it girl!"
Okay, so I say this not to be mean at all, but just that last time with all the entering contests for prizes and all that I lost a lot of time. And the very sad news about that: I didn't win ONE thing! yeah, I know. I hardly ever have good prize winning skillz (except for some flukes with Softdrink a while back!!!! thanks girl!)
So I know this is a community building thing, a fun thing, and we all want to be chatty when we have spent way too much time reading, but I am going to try and keep my blogging to a minimum. I am sorry folks, I really hope you understand. I want to communicate, I want to bond, but I want to read as many books as I can during the read-a-thon. I will check my blog, and post updates, and I will comment. I will do an update every 3 hours (instead of hourly like last time). And I know I will miss out on prizes, and be a boring loner...but I signed up as a reader yo! Please don't be mad.
Why am I this serious about it?? Well, I will tell you why later today. Stay tunned :)
