Me! The mysterious M.R.! I am hosting this and will most likely be the sole participant. But you are welcome to participate as well if you want. Keep reading to see how?
This is a readathon. Basically the idea is to just read a whole bunch. In this case, twelve hectopages (1200 pages) over the course of the Christmas season, specifically the twelve days of Christmas. There are no rules besides that. The books don't have to be Christmas books, and I'm not posting any challenges or anything like that.
Because I'm perverse and hate my family (not at all, but), this readathon will take place over the course of the actual twelve days of Christmas. If you, like Bob and Doug MacKenzie, are somewhat confused as to what the twelve days of Christmas are, then I will tell you the actual dates right now: December 25 to January 5. Let's say midnight to midnight.
Wherever I am and/or you are.
Instead of quietly doing my usual glut of Christmas reading, I am formalizing it as a readathon so that I can feel even more accomplished. Christmas is a time when I like to hang out with friends and family, eat baked goods until my teeth hurt, and read as much as possible. Join me!
I have absolutely no mechanism for you to register for this readathon other than leaving a comment on this post. There won't be any prizes other than my appreciation that you're joining me in something I'd be doing anyway. Seriously though, the more the MERRIER. SEE WHAT I DID THERE?
Hashtag for this is #12hppofxmas by the way, and you can find my tweets at the @twohectobooks twitter account. (I don't tweet much because I'm too busy reading.)
