This readathon I plan on focusing on reading rather than socializing and hitting all the mini-challenges. I think I’m going to update every 4 hours to cut back on time spent on the computer rather than reading. Oh! I’m also reading for charity. My local library is going to be building a new library and I want to help them out. Check out my post here to find out how you can help my local library!

    You’ve got some fun books to choose from. I have Isla waiting for me on my e-reader and with any luck I’ll get to it today. Good luck with your reading and raising money for your library. I hope you have a great readathon!

      I’ve read Anna but hadn’t moved any further in the series. I’m anxious to read all three of them but I didn’t get a chance to get to them in the read-a-thon. πŸ™
