In an attempt to tackle those never ending reading piles, we started a readathon to run during the length of the Olympics, and aptly naming it the Random House of Canada Olympic Readathon. Many of you have signed up, set an Olympic page goal and have continuously been updating your progress. It’s been a lot of fun and if you haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late. We encourage you to take the plunge and sign up here and tweet about your progress using the hashtag #OlympicReadathon.
Here are some of the stats we’ve accumulated so far:
Most Ambitious Goal: Melanie (@melanichol) wants to read 12,000 pages!
Most Pages Read (as of 07/31): Louisa (@lpcoolgirl) has already read 3,560 pages!
Best Twitter Cheerleader: Ellie (@Bookshop_Girl) has been fantastic at tweeting up a storm using our hashtag #OlympicReadathon.
Highest Percentage Read (as of 07/31): Nafiza (@Nafizaa) is kicking butt with an outstanding 86.55%.
The Average Page Goal: 1000 Pages.
