So we all love a good readathon or at least I do!  So when I heard Kimba hosting this one, I knew that I couldn’t pass it up. This one is great for me and anyone who has a huge TBR.  I get more motivated to read during these types of challenges because I have to sign up for them.  Well enough about me and to how you can participate  if you would like.
