Going for the Gold!: Olympic Read-A-Thon

The 2012 Olympics are running from July 27th – August 12th and Random House of Canada is sponsoring a reading challenge for those of us who have Olympic-size TBR piles to conquer!

I've got a HUGE TBR pile (think of a whole mountain range of Everests), so I’ll be participating and joining in the fun! @RandomHouseCA will be using the hashtag #OlympicReadathon to chat about progress on Twitter, so be sure to join in the conversation and encourage your friends and family to join our challenge.  I don't have a Twitter I'll be keeping track of my progress here on the blog.  My goal is 1500 pages.

Sign up here and set your Olympic Page Reading Goal! Be sure to keep track of how you’re doing throughout the Olympics!
Grab the button to share with the world that you’ve joined our Olympic Readathon!
Let's see how many gold medals we can bring home!
