48 Hour Read-a-Thon, here I come!

I just stumbled upon this great Read-a-Thon organised by Unputdownables and knew I wanted to participate. In the past 4 months (ever since I started blogging) I kept seeing one great Read-a-Thon pop up after the other but could never take part because either I had to work or we had some family event and it was impossible that I would be able to read. But not now! Thankfully I'm planning on going for a short 3 day long mini vacation to the country where all I'm planning to do is: read! (and eat of course, I won't starve myself, don't worry) :-)

So I will finally experience my first Read-a-Thon!! I'm so giddy and excited, if I weren't at work, I might jump up and down a bit (or just bounce a bit in my seat).

Since I will be out in the country, almost in the middle of nowhere in the forest I won't have internet connection, so I won't be able to post my progress as I go along :-( But at least I will be able to read a lot and I will participate in my 1st Read-a-Thon!! Yay! :-D

If you are interested and can spare a few hours to read this weekend, come join the fun! Here are the rules:

So are you in? Come read with me this weekend!

If You’re In:

1. Choose a few books that you will attempt to finish this weekend (Friday evening through Sunday night).

2. Post your TBR Read-a-Thon books on your blog so your readers can see what you are attempting for the weekend.

3. Challenge your readers to read along with you! (It’s OK if they don’t, but might be fun if they want to choose at least one book to participate with).

4. Join the discussion all weekend long at #bookblogchat on Twitter.
5. Post updates on your blog about what you are reading and what you have finished (full reviews can come later, but this will let your readers know what you are reading so they can either read along or look forward to your reviews!)

6. Visit other blogs that are doing the read-a-long. Post comments and follow your fellow bloggers.

7. Make sure you sign up here with Mr. Linky with a link to your first post so we can follow your progress!

8. *If you don’t have a blog but want to participate: Sign up with Mr. Linky, just don’t add a website (or you can link to your Twitter or GoodReads page).*

If You’re Not In, but Want to Support:

1. Check out the blogs that are participating below in the Mr. Linky list.

2. Visit those blogs and leave comments and encouragement

3. Add to your own TBRs as you see what others are reading

Please spread the word on your own blog and on Twitter!

You can sign up for the Read-a-Thon here.

I will post my reading choices once I've had time to think it through and to see a bit which books stand out in my TBR shelf ;-)

Come join us, the more the merrier! (And it feel so good when you can take off some books from your TBR shelf and put them on the Read shelves (even if just on Goodreads) lol :-p)
