I am a HUGE fan of the Olympics, more so the winter than the summer, but it doesn't really matter to me. There is something special about cheering as a country for your teams, your athletes, your heroes. I love the spirit that the Olympics bring. Everyone seems connected for those two short weeks.
This year, the Olympics are in London, England and while the time zone will interefere with my enjoyment of most live events, I am sure that I will be able to partake in my share of cheering. However, in booklover fashion, no Olympic Games would be complete without a good ole fashion readathon!!
Random House of Canada has put together an Olympic Readathon to help those of us who seem to be lagging a little on our summer to-be-read (TBR) piles. If you are interested in following along with the participants, make sure to follow the Twitter hashtag #OlympicReadathon. Want to join and read along with us? Click this link to go to the Random House of Canada Retreat page and you can sign up as well! The #OlympicReadathon will run the entire length of the Olympic games, July 27th to August 12th.
Lucky for me, I will also be travelling to Las Vegas during the #OlympicReadathon which means TWO planes rides for a total of NINE hours of non-stop reading!! This should help greatly towards me exceeding my goal of 1,500 pages. Now that I think about it... maybe I should have said higher?!?! Oh well, better to blow it out of the water than not make it, right???

So, who is with me? Comment below and let me know if you too are going to be in this year's #OlympicReadathon so I can be sure to follow along with your progress and cheer you on to a GOLD MEDAL finish!
GO CANADA GO!!
