Hello Everyone! It's time to start the Romance Junkies Read-a-Thon. First thing you want to do is one of the following:
*For bloggers - create a post about the read-a-thon with your goals, tentative reading schedule and anything else you would like to include such as a list of books you want to read. Then head over to twitter and tweet the link to hashtag #RJreadathon. If you don't have a twitter account you can leave the link in the comments here.
*For readers with no blog - Go to twitter and tweet about your goals and/or tentative reading schedule. Don't forget to include the hashtag #RJreadathon in your tweet.
*For readers with no blog or twitter account - Leave a comment here with your goals, tentative reading schedule and possibly a list of books you plan to read.
Now that you've checked in so I know who's participating we can get to the read-a-thon schedule. If you do not do the first step above none of your entries into the challenges will count so that I know that the winners of the challengers are actual participants in the read-a-thon.

All challenges will stay open until midnight on the 29th. I will be announcing all the winners from the challenges on the 30th. Make sure you include your email address in all your challenge answers so that I can contact you if you win.
To participate in the twitter party go to your twitter account and click on # Discover at the very top of your twitter home page. Then type #RJreadathon in the search box in the top right hand corner. You will see all the tweets for the whole read-a-thon. You will also want to open another page with my blog on it because the twitter prizes will be given out as follows. It will be a scavenger hunt on my blog. I will ask a question were you can find the answer on my blog somewhere and you will have 10 minutes to post the answer on twitter. Don't forget to include #RJreadathon in your tweet with the answer. I will then take all the tweets with the correct answer and put them in a drawing for the winner. The winner will be announced on twitter right after I pick one. There will be 9 questions and prizes. I hope to see you there! It's going to be a lot of fun.
Remember the #RJreadathon page on twitter is not only for the twitter party its a place were you can connect with other participants throughout the read-a-thon and get updates from Ava and me.
I know I have a lot planned but hopefully these challenges and the twitter party will give you that much needed break from reading over the 3 days. Let's remember our main goal is to read read read. Let's work on our TBR piles and have a little fun while we're at it.
