End of the Year 2013 Readathon #ReadingCram

December 9, 2013 – December 22, 2013

Jenny from Juliababyjen's Reading Room and I are hosting a Read- A- thon from December 9th - 22nd called End of the Year 2013 #ReadingCram.

If you are anything like me you have a huge stack (or even bookcases) full of book you haven't read. Did you have a goal for how many books you wanted to read during the year? Are you behind like I am?

Then this is the perfect time to read as much as you can before the new year!

Why should you participate?

1. To chisel off some of your TBR pile.

2. Do all the fun challenges and win some prizes.

3. Encourage others to read like a speed demon (and yourself) + reading with others is loads of fun.
