Bi-Annual Event hosted on a dedicated blog
Second edition of this event: August 8-9, 2009
The goal is to once again read mysteries and thrillers for 12 hours...although now you will get TWO days to reach your goal. It is your decision whether you're going to fill part of those 12 hours with audio books or whether you're sticking to the paper kind altogether.
Once again, to sign up, visit the dedicated blog and leave a comment on the post about the second edition.
First edition of this event: June 7, 2009
Inspired by Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon, Kathrin and Marleen have decided to host a bi-annual Mystery Read-A-Thon event. They write:
Since we originally met through our mutual love for mystery series, a mystery read-a-thon was what first came to mind. And since we both figured 24 hours is soooo long, far too long in fact to do it more that twice a year, if that, we figured punishing our families for 12 hours of complete ignorance of them (sorry guys, we still love you!) would be enough.
But 12 hours left us with a problem. If people from other countries would want to join us, and we would set the read-a-thon for 12 hours and those who live at the other side of the world would have to read during the night. Sounds unfair, right? So we figured if we make it a longer challenge and everyone can pick the 12 hours that fits best into the schedule.
