My First Read-A-Thon

On Friday I had the pleasure of participating in my very first Read-a-thon. One of the groups on Goodreads that I am a member of hosted the event. It began at 12:00 AM on Friday January 26 and ended  Sunday January 28th at 11:59 PM.

Our goal was to collectively read 20,000 pages over the weekend. At this moment I do not know if we reached our goal or not, but I think we did pretty great.

I read Beautiful Chaos on Friday and Saturday. It’s a book I have been trying to finish for weeks, and thanks to the read-a-thon I did. Once I finished Beautiful Chaos I began reading Stephen King’s Sleeping Beauties. ( I am beginning to see an accidental pattern here).

If you have not done a Read-a-thon before I recommend trying it. It made me feel united with readers from all over as we tried to reach a common goal. In a world separated by so much it is a great and rewarding way to come together. Reading brings people together.
