Random House of Canada’s Olympic Readathon:
July 27-August 12
By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis
For most of us push-ups, weight-lifts, or cardio runs seem all too exhausting. But, that’s why we’re not participating in the Summer Olympics in London, which is scheduled to air on July 27—and those brave and disciplined few have been called to represent the best athletic prowess of their country.
So, why not join them in spirit and participate in the Random House of Canada’s Olympic Readathon instead?
There are a few of us willing to endure late-night reading under lamplight until our eyes bulge out of their sockets from cover and climax reveals, to swoon-worthy, fictional characters, and plot-driven, maddening page-turners. We do it anyway. Why not commit to participating alongside other avid readers and knock off some titles from your TBR list?
My To-Be-Read/Reviewed List has ballooned to epic proportions and my house is exploding with piles that are collecting dust. I trust if you’re an addicted book blogger or just a mad book collector, the same is true for you. So, why not put your bookmarks away and get reading?
The Random House of Canada Readathon will run from July 27 to August 12, which gives you a lot of time to flex those reading muscles of yours. To sign up, you can register here. And be sure to check out the Retreat Random House blog page from which the original post was written.
@RandomHouseCA will be using the hashtag #OlympicReadathon to chat about our progress on Twitter, so be sure to join and tell your friends and family to cheer you on or come out and participate.
Until then, I’ll be scrounging my piles to see what goodies I’ll be getting into for the readathon. See you at the Start—and hopefully, the Finish Line!
