Unputdownables 48 Hour TBR Read-A-Thon

When:  February 4-6
Host:  She Is Too Fond of Books

I'm a football fan, but I'm a bigger book fan!  I really don't watch many pro sports games.  I'm a college sports gal, football, softball, baseball and basketball.  If I go pro, it's in tennis.  So when this read-a-thon popped up for super bowl weekend I jumped at the invitation.  I'm sure the game will be on at our house, but I'll be sneaking peeks over the top of my book (where my nose will be).  

If you're interested I encourage you to link up and participate.  How fun, right?

  • Choose a few books from your To Be Read pile that you will attempt to finish this weekend (Friday evening through Sunday night).
  • Post your TBR Read-a-Thon books on your blog so your readers can see what you are attempting for the weekend.
  • Challenge your readers to read along with you! (It’s OK if they don’t, but might be fun if they want to choose at least one book to participate with).
  • Join the discussion all weekend long at #bookblogchat on Twitter.
  • Post updates on your blog about what you are reading and what you have finished (full reviews can come later, but this will let your readers know what you are reading so they can either read along or look forward to your reviews!)
  • Visit other blogs that are doing the read-a-long. Post comments and follow your fellow bloggers.
  • Make sure you sign up here with Mr. Linky with a link to your first post so we can follow your progress!
  • *If you don’t have a blog but want to participate: Sign up with Mr. Linky, just don’t add a website (or you can link to your Twitter or GoodReads page).*
I have a stack of immediate books to read on my nightstand:
Hush, Hush by Becca Fiitzpatrick
India Black by Carol K. Carr
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Endless Love by Scott Spencer
I will choose the books to read this weekend from this pile.  


  1. So glad you're joining in! No problem with reading AND watching football at the same time... just means you're very talented and get to enjoy everything at once, haha!

  2. I like this idea. I just don't know if I have time during these days.

  3. Multitasking! Have a great weekend filled with reading and touchdowns.

  4. I'm joining you on the read-a-thon. Hope you enjoy India Black. I read that one not too long ago and thought it was an outstanding debut. Good luck with your reading this weekend!

  5. I really liked Hush Hush, hopefully it'll be a good start to your read-a-thon. Good luck!

  6. Reading and watching football - I'm impressed! :) Hope you're having a good reading weekend. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on the books you chose, I have to admit I don't know anything about them so look forward to being educated.
