Graphic Novel Readathon Starting Line & Updates

It's January 3rd, which means that it's time to begin the Graphic Novel Readathon!

The sign-up list is below, but since there's only one person signed up (hi Logan), I will have to cancel the giveaways unless more people choose to participate.

Everyone is welcome to sign up at any point in the readathon, and even if you're not readathoning with us, please enjoy the fun features going on in the next few days.

The first of the mini-challenges will be posted today. Unfortunately, I do not plan to have a giveaway for the winner, but if there are enough entries I will absolutely have that giveaway. There will be two more mini-challenges in the coming days, and on Sunday, Nathan Hale will be stopping by for an interview.

My Reading List:
  • Bone by Jeff Smith
  • Uglies: Shay's Story and Uglies: Cutters by Scott Westerfeld (Read 3 January)
  • Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack by Shannon, Dean, and Nathan Hale
  • Anya's Ghost by Vera Brogsol (Read 4 January)

I expect Bone to take up a lot of readathoning time, but it's also the book I'm most looking forward to.

Today I read Uglies: Shay's Story and Uglies: Cutters. I really liked Shay's Story, perhaps even more than I had the first time I read it, but I was ambivalent about Cutters. I liked the metaphor-story about the ranger that was not included in the book, but I felt like a graphic novel format was not the best way to tell the story, and that if I hadn't already known what was going on from reading Pretties, I would have been lost for a lot of the book. Tomorrow I'd like to start Bone, but I might read Anya's Ghost instead. I'm planning to finish the readathon with Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack, since I love those two so much.

Today I did not read much, but I did get through Anya's Ghost, which was just as good as I remembered.

january 5
Again I did not read much today. I read so many graphic novels in December to prepare for this readathon that I am not feeling so motivated to read now that the readathon is actually happening. I hope tomorrow Rapunzel's Revenge will get me out of the graphic novel slump.

Happy Readathoning!
