Mystery Read-A-Thon


June 7, 2009

Inspired by Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon, Kathrin and Marleen have decided to host a bi-annual Mystery Read-A-Thon event. They write:

Since we originally met through our mutual love for mystery series, a mystery read-a-thon was what first came to mind. And since we both figured 24 hours is soooo long, far too long in fact to do it more that twice a year, if that, we figured punishing our families for 12 hours of complete ignorance of them (sorry guys, we still love you!) would be enough.

But 12 hours left us with a problem. If people from other countries would want to join us, and we would set the read-a-thon for 12 hours and those who live at the other side of the world would have to read during the night. Sounds unfair, right? So we figured if we make it a longer challenge and everyone can pick the 12 hours that fits best into the schedule.

I have decided to try this – I have several mysteries on my stacks and lately I’ve been in the mood to read them…this gives me the perfect opportunity to do so. Come back on Sunday to see what I’m reading.

Want to join in the fun? Vist the dedicated blog to sign up…see you on the 7th!
