What a great idea from Random House Canada! I'm in!
"The 2012 Olympics are running from July 27th – August 12th and we want to participate in the fun in the form of a reading challenge!
Our reading piles are overflowing with great summer books, so what better way to chip away at your book piles than by reading as much as you can during the span of the Olympics.
Like all of you, I’ve got an outstanding number of books to read too, so I’ll be participating and joining in the fun! @RandomHouseCA will be using the hashtag #OlympicReadathon to chat about our progress on Twitter, so be sure to join in the conversation and encourage your friends and family to join our challenge.
Sign up here and set your Olympic Page Reading Goal! Be sure to keep track of how you’re doing throughout the Olympics!
Do some stretches, maybe some lunges and get set to read as much as you can during July 27th – August 12th!"
