Wicked Wildfire Readathon

I have signed up for the Wicked Wildfire Readathon, June 20-24th.  Unlike the other readathons I've been in, this is not a 24-hour marathon, but rather a five day period of concentrated reading time.  There will be prizes and challenges and a Twitter party.

My reading goal for this year is 75 books, which means I need to read 37 (and a half) by the end of June. So far I've read 32.  Finishing five books by the end of June is actually feasible - I have an audio going in the car and two in progress on my Nook and one in paper form.

To facilitate more reading during those five days, I am limiting my TV, Twitter, blog and Words With Friends time (my biggest distractions).  I'm not deluded enough to think I'll cut out any of them completely, but I do hope to minimize them and concentrate on books.

If the stack of books waiting for you is getting out of hand, or if you just need an excuse to ignore the dishes and read, go HERE and sign up. Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon is sponsored by Rebecca @ Kindle Fever and April @ My Shelf Confessions.


  1. Oh, I wish I could do this one, but it's parked right in the middle of finals week. Stupid work! Have a great time and happy reading. I will visualize 37.5 for you!

  2. Sounds like an interesting read-a-thon; good luck with it!!!
