Okay, it’s go time, people. Review the rules. No, really. Because while they aren’t complicated, they do set the guidelines for the challenge. Keep your eye on the prize, whether it be the exciting list of books or charitable donations for your readathon or reaching your personal goal. Make sure you have plenty of snacks, caffeine, and good books. Put in a movie marathon for the kids — even if that’s not usually your thing — because this time it’s about you.
When you start your 48 hours, sign in with Mr. Linky below. Keep track of your time — which includes reading, blogging, and some connecting (for every five hours reading/reviewing you can take one hour of blog reading, tweeting, and general bookish socializing). To keep the Starting Line post at the top of my blog, I won’t publish my personal posts until sometime Saturday morning.
On Sunday, I’ll have a Finish Line post where you can leave the link to your final summary, which should include the amount of time spent on the challenge. Feel free to round to the quarter hour. If you’ll be connecting your reading time to a charity, please say so in the comments. I’ll be giving a dollar per finisher to a Donors Choose literacy project, as another incentive to sign out on the Finish Line post.
Have fun, read well.
