John of The Canadian Book Challenge fame is hosting a Canadian book readathon, Under the Midnight Sun Readathon. He writes:
On July 2nd join me in a 24 hour Canadian readathon! It'll start at noon (your time!) and run until the 3rd at noon. So sleep in after your Canada Day festivities, then wake up and start reading at brunch. Bacon, maple syrup, and a Douglas Coupland novel perhaps? Take a break from reading every hour or two and blog your progress (if you're not a blogger, you can add comments on this site). Give support to others throughout the day. Take pee breaks. But between breaks, it's all about reading Canadian books. Read in your muskoka chair out on the day. Have fun, relax.
And if you're a Canadian Book Challenge 5 participant, what a perfect way to start! Take a few breaks to blog reviews from time to time and those 13 titles will be done in no time. If you're not a Canadian Book Challenge 5 participant, I hope you'll still consider taking part in the readathon. It's a Saturday, it's the summer, what else do you have to do? The lawn can wait.
To join, go to Under the Midnight Sun Readathon.
