Mark your calendars, and get spring started the right way: Coming up soon is a week-long ReadaThing. All are welcome, and you don’t have to read for the full week: the goal is to have a few people from around the world reading at any given time during the ReadaThing.
This edition of ReadaThing will be kicking off at 12am (Midnight) UTC on Sunday, April 6th (that’s 8pm Eastern, Saturday April 5th), and will end at the same time on April 12am UTC the following Sunday, April 13th (8pm Eastern, Saturday, April 12th). You can see the full timeline here. April’s ReadaThing also happens to coincide with the US’s National Drop Everything and Read Day, which is celebrated every April 12th, in honor of author (and creator of Ramona Quimby) Beverly Cleary‘s birthday.
Head directly to the April 2014 ReadaThing Wiki to sign up, or check out the announcement thread for more general information. You don’t have to pick a time slot in advance in order to participate! There’s a special place for readers who don’t want to commit to a specific schedule to sign up.
What are you reading?
Whether you’d like to check out what your fellow ReadaThing-ers are reading, or to share your own ReadaThing picks, head over to the What will you be reading? thread to see what books are slated. Remember: anything goes! You can read whatever you want, wherever you want.
Get ready to read
Once the April ReadaThing is underway, keep an eye out for the “April 2014 ReadaThing: Log Book” thread, where you can document your ReadaThing experiences. Take a peek at the Log Book from June 2013, for an example.
If you’ve never done ReadaThing before, you’re in good company—this is my first one. Give it a try, and stay tuned to the ReadaThing group for updates. Thanks to LT member jjmcgaffey for organizing this ReadaThing!
