Hurricane Sandy Read-A-Thon

Most of the East Coast is currently under a crazy storm watch thanks to the mega-storm that is Hurricane Sandy. I'm sitting right in the middle in Maryland, and Sandy is supposed to make landfall a few hundred miles from my house. 

Needless to say we're expecting heavy power outages. In fact, my power has flickered twice since starting to write this post.

So, I'm proposing a Hurricane Sandy Read-A-Thon! As soon as the lights go out, I plan on reading as much as I can until the lights come back on. I have my Nook charged for nighttime reading and a ready supply of candles and my booklight for when the battery dies. I also have an insanely high ARC stack I need to make a dent in.

When I eventually get power back and can update the blog, I'll come back and let you know how many books I managed to read! Anyone else in?

Even if you aren't in Sandy's warpath, feel free to jump on board and read as much as you can with us until Sandy finally dissipates.

For everyone in the line of fire, hang on and stay safe!


  1. I think Sandy has already passed over me for the most part without leaving too much damage, but I'll still join you, as there's no point in doing much else today except read!

  2. I'm in! http://writingchristiannovels.blogspot.com/2012/10/hurricane-sandy-read-thon.html

  3. I live in NYC still have power! Reading Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce also have my nook charged ready and waiting!

  4. What an awesome idea to encourage those who lose their power to do something fun/productive! I'm in, and I will be praying for those who will be affected by Sandy.

  5. Wishing you lots of luck with your reading and with the weather!

    We are in the middle of parent/teacher conferences and there would not be any time for read-a-thons. So, read hundreds of books for me ;)

  6. Sounds like a brilliant plan for riding Sandy out Hannah! I hope you and your family are safe, and I can't wait to find out how much reading you get done:)
