The Read-a-thon is here!


It's hard to believe it is time for another read-a-thon! I still remember the one at this time last year. The guy was doing yard work and I was trying to comment around ladder holding... It's weird the things you remember! I have been lurking for the read-a-thons since the very beginning, but never actually read. Normally it is because I read so much anyway that it is a good excuse for a break. This year it is because my reading sucks and I don't want to torture myself trying to make something happen that is crashing and dying so far... Maybe in October things will be different!

In the meantime, I will be visiting blogs and cheering people on. I didn't sign-up to cheerlead, either, but I haven't actually signed up since 2007. I am just that slack! Happy reading to everyone!

  1. I've been lurking around the readathons for the last year too. I do love the enthusiasm of everyone participating. I think I add more books to my wishlist on readathon weekend than any other weekend!

  2. I know! The books that I add are crazy! Not to mention the bad things it does to my blog reader...

  3. I've never been a cheerleader, but I've read in seven, including this one! Fun, fun, fun.

  4. Sorry to see you're struggling with reading these days. As an older reader, I say, If your reading isn't holding your interest, PUT DOWN THE BOOKS. Get another ten or so and see if they are better. Nothing worse than trying to read a so-so book.

  14. Thanks for stopping by! And I agree with readerbuzz ... put those books down and try different ones. Life is too short to read bad books.

  17. Read as you taste fruit or savor wine,
    or enjoy friendship, love or life.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
