End of the Year 2013 Reading Cram Read-A-Thon Info/Progress

Juliababyjen’s Reading Room and Dana Square are hosting a Read-A-Thon from December 9th to December 22nd! I’m very excited about this last Read-A-Thon so here’s what it’s all about:

“If you are anything like me you have a huge stack (or even bookcases) full of book you haven’t read. Did you have a goal for how many books you wanted to read during the year? Are you behind like I am? 
Then this is the perfect time to read as much as you can before the new year! 
Why should you participate?
1. To chisel off some of your TBR pile.
2. Do all the fun challenges and win some prizes.
3. Encourage others to read like a speed demon (and yourself) + reading with others is loads of fun. 
So let’s get in our last books of 2013 together in the #ReadingCram ! 
Listed below are all the things you need to know and the linky to sign up!”
Check out both of their websites to check out all the info and I will try to be participating in most/all of the challenges which include:

  1. Oh, I love the Book Thief so I hope you enjoy it! I have a lot of YA series on my list for the readathon, like the Throne of Glass books and the Grisha series. I have eight books in my list too and I don't know if I'll get through them all, but even to get through more than half of them will make me happy! 🙂

  2. I agree with Ciara, The Book Thief is an awesome book! I'm sure you will enjoy it!!! Good luck with achieving your goal!

  3. Nice variety! It always makes a readathon more fun that way 🙂 Good luck!

  4. Nice list! The Book Thief is amazing. That and The Duff are two of my favorites. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father looks like a cute book. 🙂 Good luck on the #ReadingCram

    Here is my reading list.

  5. Great list! The Book Thief is a wonderful book. Good luck with your reading!

  6. I plan on reading Book Thief as well during this challenge.
    Here's my post.

  7. I plan on reading The Book Thief too but not during the read-a-thon. I hope I can read it before the movie releases in my country. Good luck to us read-a-thoners and hope you have fun in this read-a-thon 😀
