End of Summer Read-A-Thon! (Sign-up post)

Hosted by Turning Pages and YA Bookmark
 
I have a fun weekend ahead of me doing what I love most! The End of Summer read-a-thon will run from August 9 through August 12. There's gonna be challenges and giveaways throughout, so this should be fun! There are 2 reasons I'm really excited about this Read-a-Thon. 1) I'm gonna FINALLY get some books off my TBR list. Most of them are review books, so it'll be great to check a couple off! 2) I'm doing this with, Melanie, one of my blogging buddies!!
 
Here's a bit more info from the Hosts:

What is The End of Summer Read-A-Thon?
The End of Summer Read-A-Thon is hosted by me (Lisa) from Turning Pages and Audris from YA Bookmark; running from August 9th through August 12th. The End of Summer Read-A-Thon is a long weekend filled with books, challenges, giveaways and other special posts.

What do you do?
All you have to do is gather up a big stack of books, either summer themed, or books you planned on finally reading this summer, and start reading and don’t stop until Monday August 12th!! I plan on reading books that have been sitting on my shelf for months now, unread. Also tons of giveaways, challenges, and special posts are planned out on both Turning Pages and YA Bookmark, so it’s easy to be able to join in on the fun!

 A good friend once tweeted me, "It's always more fun to do read-a-thons with friends..." So, c'mon! Sign up and join us for an awesome weekend of reading :) To learn more and sign up, you can visit either Turning Pages or YA Bookmark
 
 
My goal is to read at least 3 review books and 1 just for fun. Don't know which ones yet, I'll probably just pick up whatever looks good from my ever growing pile and start reading. I'll also be tweeting my progress and updating on Goodreads so you can see how I'm doing :) Hope some of you guys join so we can cheer each other on!
