Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Book Drunkard Week Long Read-a-Thon

13 Comments


With the end of the year upon us (and coming too quickly, in my opinion!), I looked at my stack of books and decided that there is no better way to make a dent in my TBR pile than to host a read-a-thon!  I will admit, I’ve been a bit in a ‘reading funk’ lately, and I need something to jump start me.

So, it’s pretty simple.  Sign up on this post with the number of books you plan on reading during the week of December 2 – 8.  You can even leave a list of books you’re reading!  If enough people sign up, there will be a prize, so tell your friends!  Leave a link to your read-a-thon blog post (if you have one) but you don’t need one to participate.

The more the merrier!  Let’s get together, cheer each other on and try to read our reading goals before the end of 2012.

  1. This sounds like a great idea… I need that extra push at the end of the year. I hope to read 5 books during the week, but don’t have the TBR list yet. I’ll be posting my complete plan during the weekend before. http://tfrances.wordpress.com I’ll be checking back…

  2. I hope more people decide to join up! Otherwise, it might just be the two of us 🙂

  3. I don’t have my post up yet but I’ll join in!

  4. I have two books picked out what I want to read next week. Not very ambitious, but we’ll see how those go and then I can add more!

    The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan and In Bed With the Tudors by Amy Licence.

  5. I’m totally there! I’ll post my list and stuff now! 🙂

  6. *Skids in at the last moment and bangs a book and a mug of coffee down on the table* WAIT FOR MEEEE! Signing up, checking in, hello everybody! My post’s here:

    Aaaaah, a week-long excuse to ignore everybody and stick my nose in a book. Perfect. 😀

  7. Ok so I’m in! I hope to finish the book I started a few months ago! My non reading phase is a little long! Oh and I better read the short story I was given yesterday…. The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allan Poe and The Preacher by Camille Lackberg.

    • Yay! Glad you’re joining in, Linda! PS – I have a book for you so when’s coffee? 😀 B found an Oilers hockey card and slipped it in the book for you 🙂

  8. I found this one just in time to join! I never have the time to do the weekend read-a-thons, so I appreciate that you are running this the whole week!

    Here’s my Starting Line post:
