    I’ve just signed up and excited to be a part of this. Thank you so much for the HTML sign up post too, I’m all for things that make my life easier!


  4. So excited about this! :D But I am a total idiot and didn’t realise when I signed up I had to link it to my sign-up post .___. *shot*

  5. Wendy says:

    This sounds like so much fun! I’m all signed up. Can’t wait!

  6. I was lookin for a way to read all those books on my TBR list.Thanks and I just signed up!

  7. Does it have to be summer for me to participate? I am on the backside of the world (ye old southern hemisphere) and we are heading into the cold now.

  8. All signed up. I am excited for this because it is after BEA and anyone going there will have new books to read and I have a ton of TBR’s I have to read. This is great! I LOVE the buttons too. Danny and Sandy are my FAVE summer lovin couple of ALL time!

    • Meagan says:

      Excellent point Bella! Those with BEA ARC’s should have plenty to read during this time.

      And I’ve been humming “Look at me, I’m Sandra Dee” for weeks. :-)

  9. SweetMarie83 says:

    Yay, can’t wait! :-D

  10. Sounds like a lot of fun! I’ll check my calender to see if I can participate :D!

  11. Michelle says:

    And let me know if I signed up correctly! Thanks!

  12. Michelle says:

    Last comment haha so I signed up wrong the first time so i just re-signed up. I think i did it right this time. But now I’m signed up twice….

    Also, what exactly are the rules? Do we track all of our progress on twitter with the hashtag?

  13. I’m looking forward to participating. It seems like it will be a lot of fun!

  14. Zed says:

    I changed my web address so I re-entered again, but now I’m listed twice no. 83 and 45. The last one is the current one, sorry for the confusion!!

  15. anddeea says:

    I can’t wait for it! I saw around a month ago another Read-a-thon but I couldn’t participate in that one because I had my semester exams, but now I am glad that I can join this one! Btw, I accidentally deleted the first post so I had to re-enter. I am on #86 & #87 :)

  16. Nikki says:

    Hey, I realized I didn’t link to my sign-up post when I left my link the first time, so I entered the correct link instead – but now I’m listed twice, #63 (wrong url) and #91 (correct, sign-up post) …sorry about that! =S

  17. Kayla says:

    Shoot! I just realized I didn’t put in the sign up post URL and I can’t re enter it. Sorry I’m just a spazz! :(

  18. Book Bunny says:

    Okay, now I’m really embarrassed! First I put a link to my blog, not to the post and then I put the right link with wrong blog name X__X Now I can’t enter the right link with the right blog name :P I’m so sorry! *blushes*

  19. Just signed up! Should be lots of fun! Put a link on my blog, so here’s to hoping even more people sign up!

  20. I’m in, I did my post, but the linky has expired. Where to sign up, should I leave a link in the comments?

    Thanks for hosting, this seems like lots of fun, and I love read-a-thons :)

  21. Martha says:

    Looks like fun! I just signed up! :)

  22. plueschbooks says:

    Made a really stupid mistake when signing up the first time, can you delete entries from the list? If so, please feel free to either delete or ignore entry #148 called ‘Twitter Signup Post’, really sorry! My “real” entry is #149 Plueschbooks! :)

  23. Jessica says:

    I REALLY need to make a dent in my fun TBR pile. Looking forward to participating. :)

  24. I hope it’s alright that I blog in Turkish!

  25. Pabkins says:

    is there any way to delete my signup on the linky – I forgot to link it directly to the sign up post on my blog!

  26. Jasprit says:

    Hey I’ve signed up twice, as the first time I didn’t have my link to my sign up post up, so I signed up the second time with my link up post :)

  27. *Facepalm* I accidentally forgot to include the right link to the sign-up post on my blog :( I’ll have to sign up a second time, unfortunately. I’m sorry!

  28. OMG! I was too excited when I heard about this and my first sign up didn’t include my sign up post :S (It was #61). I just signed up again (#214) with my actual sign up post! So sorry about that !!

  29. plueschbooks says:

    Alright, so I just created a Tumblr for my updates, could you be so kind as to delete my Twitter link? It’s #148, Plueschbooks :) I’ll sign up again with my Tumblr blog, thanks! <3

  30. Kayla says:

    I think I’m gonna join, sorry I’m a little later xD

  31. Cyndi W. says:
