The Readathon is Here! My Update Post

dewey1 Happy Read-a-Thon everyone! Like I said in my book stack post yesterday, I’m going to use my neglected Tumblr, A Little Bit of Dorkiness, and my Twitter feed (@kimthedork) for updates throughout the day.

But I saw on Twitter that Jenn of Jenn’s Bookshelves links up her Tumblr posts to a main update past on her blog, which seemed like a good idea. So I’m going to copy here — you can find updates quickly on Tumblr, but I’ll occasionally stop in here to respond to comments as needed and post links to what I’m up to.

Happy Readathon!!

And that’s where I’m calling it a night. Thanks for all of the comments and cheering and good old bookish nerding out, everyone. I’ll be back tomorrow with my regular Sunday Currently post and the closing survey for the readthon. Happy reading!

    Have fun today! Looking at your stack of books this morning made me wish I could participate!

      I love doing the Readathon. It’s such nerdy good fun.

    Yay readathon! Hope you are getting through lots of books. I’ve been enjoying your Twitter updates.

      Thank you! It was interesting to be doing Tumblr/Twitter/Instagram for updates — hard to keep track of everything!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Kim! Updating on Tumblr is a great idea. I would do that if I ever used my Tumblr, but I just haven’t been able to get into it. Maybe one day.

      I don’t use my Tumblr too often… I forget about it. But it seemed to work well for this.

    Tumblr is the one social media tool that I have yet to bother to figure out. Looks like you’re doing great, though. Enjoy your pot luck! I hope you come home energized to read some more.

    This would have been a good use for Tumblr. I’ve let mine go pretty much dormant, but perhaps I’ll consider using it for the next readathon.

    • Kim April 30, 2013, 6:25 pm

      The only thing I had to figure out ahead of time was comments, but that ended up being a pretty easy fix. It was nice to be able to do quick updates there rather than here on the blog.

    Yay Read-a-Thon! I’m having the BEST day 🙂 I’m making some rounds on social media right now in an attempt to wake myself up…I’m fading, ack!

  • Alita April 27, 2013, 11:39 pm

    Congrats on a successful readathon! I hope you had a fun day 🙂

    You made it longer than me… by 10:30 pm I was done 🙂

      I was pretty brain dead by about 11 but pushed on another hour. I started late though — I forgot the starting time!
