Have you guys heard about this read-a-thon yet?? It’s a 24 hour read-a-thon taking place on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving in the US – November 25th). This read-a-thon is hosted by Amber @ Du Livre and Mocha Girls Read. Find out more about the read-a-thon here!
I LOVED the idea for this as soon as I saw it. Maybe it’s because I’m an introvert, but the idea of actually going out and shopping on Black Friday is terrifying. I don’t usually go shopping unless I’m trying to get something specific or I’m shopping online. That’s why when I saw Amber’s announcement, I fell in love with the idea! Spending a day cozied up with a book instead of fighting the crowds sounds like heaven. It’s exactly the way I want to spend the day after Thanksgiving. Plus, maybe I’ll spend less money this way 😛
As far as a TBR or a goal for the read-a-thon – I think I’m going to try something I haven’t tried before! Instead of choosing a TBR or making a book related goal for the read-a-thon, I’m making a goal of reading for 8 hours out of the 24 hours. I’m making reading my “job” for Black Friday! 🙂 I’ve never done an hourly goal for a read-a-thon and I think this will be fun!
