2nd Annual Classics Club Readathon!


Due to popular demand, we are bringing back our New Year’s Readathon!  This year’s readathon will fall on Saturday, January 4th, which is quite convenient as the current Classics Club Spin deadline is January 1st; this means you’ll be able to start a new Classics Club pick for the new year!  Convenient, no?


A 24-hour readathon in the beginning of January to jump-start the new year!

The second (annual) “Classics Club Readathon” will be taking place on January 4th, 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! We all look forward to reading with you on the 4th!

  7. I’m getting ready for the readathon and trying to figure out whether to start Mahfouz’s Palace Walk or Mann’s Magic Mountain. Any advice?

  14. This sounds like so much fun! Sadly, my out of town company leaves that day, so I’ll be saying goodbye to them and making airport runs. I will totally keep an eye out for next year’s, though 🙂


  15. I loved the first readathon, & was very excited to see this post…but when I saw the date, my reaction changed to “oh no! We’re going to an afternoon wedding on the 4th! I can’t do this!”

    But then – ah ha!
    I’m in Australia….several time zones away from most of you…I could read all day Sunday (here – if I’m not too hungover!) and still be sharing Saturday with many of you (over there!)
    Problem solved 🙂


  16. Whoot whoot! I’ll be signing up! I’ll be polishing off Middlemarch probably. If I make my goal of finishing Middlemarch by 12/31 then I’ll work on The Woman in White for Wilkie in Winter. I love this idea!


  17. ha! the first classic on my list for the year is Don Quixote! I won’t be getting more that a couple hundred pages at the most done in that 24 hours (if that!). Someday I hope to be able to take part in a readathon! Good luck everyone!
