  1. Good luck Kelsey! I’ve signed up too, though I’m aiming for a modest 850 pages as I’m working so many days over the fortnight. All these enticing posts are reminding me of all kinds of great books I have on my shelves but haven’t read yet – I might have to dig LOLA out, for a start… I’ll be updating on Twitter and on the blog, so drop by and say hi if you fancy a break from all that reading! :)

    • I’ll be lucky if I can make my goal lol I tend to get distracted while reading. Yeah I’ll probably read on the weekends like crazy too, I only read at work when it’s slow. Woot!

  3. Hi Kelsey. I also chose 2500 pages as a goal for the Read-a-Thon. I don’t seem to do a very good job of planning what I’m going to read ahead of time, so it’s nice to see what you have lined up for the 17 days of the Olympics. Go go!

    • Awesome, good luck with your 2500 pages!! I tend to plan on which books need to get done first, like library ones, otherwise I just pick ones I think I may want to read hehe.

  4. Congratulations on making your goal early. I had to push on Sunday to do it, but I wound up with 2631 pages. You mention getting ready for another Read-a-thon — does that mean I’ll see you at #boutofbooks ?

I love comments! Feel free to leave one, and if it doesn't show up right away don't worry, I just have to approve it.
