Allie here to talk some things over with you, as well as give you some exciting information about things coming up with the Club.
You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around here…for many of the moderators, the beginning of September brought a lot of challenges in our personal lives-from new jobs, to school, and more. We have been here, quietly adding in review links when we get a spare moment. Sometimes that might take a few days. Please be patient with us as we try to maintain a balance between our homes, work, our personal blogs, and our roles here. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we love this space! We want it to thrive!
On that note, I wanted to give you a head’s up that we are going to be undertaking a 24-hour readathon in the beginning of January to jump-start the new year! The first ever “The Classics Club Readathon” will be taking place on January 5th, 2013. We wanted to pick a date that would help ring in the new year and all that excitement of tackling reading lists and conquering classics.
We will be following the same timezone rules as the 24-Hour Readathon, with a kick-off post debuting at 8am EST here on the blog. We will be reading for 24 hours after that! We’re hoping this will inspire you to knock a classic or two off your challenge list!
To sign up, fill in the Mister Linky below. We’d appreciate it if you spread the word (through a post on your blog or on twitter) so we can get as many participants as possible! I look forward to reading with you on the 5th!
