This week’s discussion is: read-a-thons. To read-a-thon or not to read-a-thon, that is the question is it not?
Well, I’ll tell you I love a good read-a-thon. I don’t know if I’ve ever met any of my goals, but I sure have a lot of fun in the meantime. One of my favorite things to do during a read-a-thon is check out other people’s blogs. I’ve met some really awesome, interesting folks that way and it is definitely something I look forward to most.
This past week I participated in Bout of Books. I had plans of grandeur to say the least. I was going to read 7 books, I was going to participate in challenges and I was going to visit blogs. Well the last two goals I met, but the 7 books? Yeah, not so much. You know what though? That’s okay, because I still had a ton of fun!
I would say read-a-thons are about books, of course, though it’s more than that. They’re about community and about having a good time with like-minded people.
With Bout of Books over I don’t have any plans for another read-a-thon until December. I wonder what I’ll do with myself until then…
