Read-A-Thon to Clear Away the Clutter!

Got some clutter? Don't we all. We've been swamped, fallen behind, blah, blah, blah. You know the drill.

Well, Kate at The Neverending Shelf is having a Clear Away the Clutter Read-A-Thon this week to help you clean up any kind of clutter.

Our Goals:

  • Get caught up on writing current book reviews
  • Finish our current reads
  • Write up long term reviews.
  • Get caught up on guest post/interview requests
  • Determine what books we won't be reading and give away/donate them.

We'll be hosting on Thursday but several blogs are participating. The full scoop direct from Kate follows:

Welcome to Day ONE of the Clean Away the Clutter Read-A-Thon. This read-a-thon is designed to help participants hit that book clutter hard. There are no real goals... just the ones that you may set for yourself. So this will be a nice easy week for you to just focus on your books and clutter. A few bloggers and myself have set up some really fun activities for the week. You can participate in as many or as few of the activities as you like.

I do have an ARC of Princess of Glass to giveaway that's on my blog as well if you're looking to read that - unless, of course, you guys are already giving away copies. :)

Cool idea. I'm trying to get through my reading clutter, which would be a lot easier if I didn't keep going to the library and the bookstore.

Okay, I'm drooling over the Rules of Attraction prize. I can't wait to read the book.
