My big fat book challenge~athon/ Meine grosse fette Buecher Herausforderung~athon

You might have all guessed it by now: I love Goodreads immensely.

You can not only enter the books you are reading, the ratings you give the book and write reviews you can also join different groups. One of them is “My big fat booky challenge~athon”

This month is the first time I have joined one of their challenges which are the “December Readathon”. It means we are challenging ourselves to read 24 hours throughout 7 days. These are from last Friday 2nd December midnight to next Thursday 9th December midnight.

I had figured out that  I need to read about 3 1/2 hours per day to reach the goal. I usually read about 1 1/2 to 2 hours per day so I thought “it can’t be that difficult” but we are more than half way through and I have just 13 hours of reading to account for.

I enjoy it thoroughly though.

Die meisten Links dieses Eintrages sind in englischer Sprache.

Ihr habt es vielleicht schon bemerkt: Ich liebe Goodreads unheimlich.

Man kann nicht nur die Buecher eintragen, die man liest, man kann sie auch bewerten und eine Buchbesprechung schreiben, sondern auch Gruppen beitreten. Eine davon ist:  “My big fat booky challenge~athon” (“Meine grosse fette Buecher Herausforderung~athon”).

Diesen Monat nehme ich zum ersten mal an einer Herausforderung dieser Gruppe teil, die “December Readathon” heisst. Die Herausforderung besagt, dass wir in 7 Tagen 24 Stunden lang lesen sollen.  Das begann letzten Freitag 2. Dezember Nacht um 0 Uhr und geht bis naechsten Donnerstag 9. Dezember Nacht 24 Uhr.

Ich habe ausgerechnet, dass ich ungefaehr 3 1/2 Stunden pro Tag lesen muss, um sie zu bestehen. Normalerweise lese ich so 1 1/2 bis 2 Stunden pro Tag und so dachte ich: “Das kann ja nicht so schwer sein!”. Aber jetzt ist schon mehr als die Haelfte rum und ich habe gerade mal 13 Stunden zusammen.

Ich geniese es aber trotzdem!

Die deutsche Version von Goodreads heisst Lovely Books!

    1. Yes it is a lot but what really amazes me is that there are some who already have done 24 H!!!!!! I am at 14 now well I guess I have to train a bit more but there is another one next month ~ will keep you updated!


  1. I love to read! I sometimes have as many as 3 books going at a time…that doesn’t include magazines and online reading. Good luck with your challenge.


    1. Hi Amy yes I usually have about 20 books from the library laying around some to read some about blogging, internet and a lot about holistic healing. Often can’t get along but well….. I only managed 13 hours for the challenge though. Am sure next month I’ll be better!
