When you think you can quietly (or not so quietly) enjoy Thanksgiving, Sinterklaas, and Christmas, there come the book bloggers with some more events to keep you busy.
Two read-a-thons and a getting ready for 2012 event. Maybe you want to join in! I do.
Thankfully Reading Weekend
Spend your Thanksgiving weekend (or if you don’t do Thanksgiving: it’s this coming weekend) reading!
There are no real rules: just to read as much as you can during Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There will be mini-challenges and giveaways.
You can sign up at Jenn’s Book Shelves HERE. Over 60 people already did! Hope to see you there!
The read-a-thon runs from 7am Saturday December 3rd until 7 am Sunday December 4th. A real 24 hour read-a-thon. So read into the early hours and join the other participants HERE.
Get Read-y for 2012
Not a read-a-thon, but a final challenge to get as many books off your shelves as possible, before the new year starts.
This is organised by Loving Books and runs for the whole of December, with weekly check-ins and a giveaway.
The goal is to reduce your to-be-read pile, and especially any review books that you haven’t got round to so you can start 2012 with a more manageable pile of books.
More information HERE and sign up on the Mr Linky on December 1st.
Will you find the time to participate?
