Holiday #Readathon is coming!

The second annual Holiday #Readathon, hosted by Liza at WhoRuBlog, begins on December 2 and runs through the 4th. This will be a great time to sneak in some holiday reads, catch up some books that you've been meaning to get to, and have fun reading along with other bloggers. 

Everyone who signs up will be entered into a random drawing to win a SIGNED first edition copy of Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Prince. Novel will be sent from Books of Wonder after December 6, 2011.

Sign-ups are going on now and will continue throughout the readathon. 
If you want to join in on the fun, SIGN UP HERE.

Also, several bloggers and authors have joined in and are hosting giveaways and challenges during the readathon. 

1. Kai from Fiction State of Mind:
2. Mary from Sparkling Reviews:
3. Author Laurie Viera Rigler:
4. Heidi from YA Bibliophile:
5. April from Good Books and Good Wine:
6. Melissa from YA Bookshelf:

WhoRuBlog Challenge:

1. Pledge a penny or two or three (or any amount you want!) per page that you read.  Put a minimum number that you will pledge.  For example:  100 pages – $1.00. And then donate the amount to your favorite charity.


2. ANY type of donation for the holiday season – a can(s) of food, book to a library, Toy for Tots, gently used books or clothes donated to a shelter, school – qualifies. Just list it. (Feel free to come up with your own ideas!)

I have pledged to donate a penny for every page that I read and all money raised will go toward books for my community's Christmas Drive. Last year I made this same pledge, ask my friends and family to sponsor me for the readathon and raised over $120 in books. This was one of the most rewarding things and did.

I know that this year's readathon will be just as fun and rewarding. I hope that if you have some free time next weekend that many of my readers will join in too or just cheer me along!
