Okay, so if y’all know me at all, you know I can’t turn down a readathon. I really can’t. It’s like not buying books – it just doesn’t happen. So when I saw Kimba hosting this one, I went for it. AND I’m even hosting a fancy challenge (totally not fancy at all) which you can enter below. You can read all the details about the readathon (and sign up!) on Kimba’s blog here but I’ve copied and pasted the rules for you here as well.

Here’s what I’m hoping to read for this readathon.
- Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
- And maybe one more that I pick at random? We’ll see how I do.
Unfortunately, I still have to work this week, so I won’t be able to read as much as I’d like. BUT THIS WEEKEND IT”S ON!
Now for the REAL reason you all came here, let’s be real. Don’t think I don’t know. The challenge!! I’m going to make you work for this. This is SUCH a hard challenge I’ve thought up here. I don’t know how you are going to even enter. Ready for what you have to do? Presenting…
The Six Words (Or Less!) Challenge
Tell me the synopsis of the book you’re currently reading (or the one you just finished) in six words. Bonus points if you do it in less words than six.
All you have to do is comment below with your six words, and your email so I can contact you if you win. Winner will be chosen at random and sent a PAPERBACK book of their choice, plus a piece of swag or two that I’ve collected if you’re in the US (if you’re international, I can’t send swag, but you can choose a book from The Book Depository, as long as it ships to your country!). The challenge starts at 8AM CST. Doing it in less than six words won’t help your chances any, even though I said you’d get bonus points. I lied. You may only enter once. You MUST be a participant in the Ides of March readathon. You must be human.
Alright! GIVE ME THOSE SYNOPSIS’S! (Synopsi? Synopsises?)
