The Love for Books read-a-thon is run by Novel Heartbeat. And it's, as it says in the title, running from midnight on the ninth, through the fifth, and I was excited to see a read-a-thon going on that seemed pretty low key and fun.
I've had a weird start to my February reading month. And, as I type this, am actually just not feeling super great (mentally, physically), but books count as medicine, right? That's how that works? In all seriousness, I am kind of hoping that relaxing and de-stressing will make me feel better (does the reading help lower stress thing work if what you're feeling stressed about is reading? Does that question make sense?).
Anyway, besides me rambling, there aren't many rules for this read-a-thon (second year it's running!). If you want to be eligible for the grand prize thing, you need to be signed up on the sign up linky by the 10th (of February, of course). And - for social media fun: #LfBReadathon.
I have no idea what I'll be reading, because I'm just feeling off reading wise. However - I'm hoping to be more page and time oriented, then book number. A lot of the books I want to read this month (or just soon) are chunksters, and so I don't want to shove in smaller books just to shove in smaller books.
And my last read-a-thon didn't go as well as they normally go for me, so I'd like to get at least 2k pages read, hopefully more, but 2k is doable and not too stressful. Also to read some single issues I'm behind on (I'm still working on what to count on goodreads, but I don't think it'll be all of them, just a few series).
I'm rambling again, goodness I get chatty when I'm just writing up posts without any thought about what to put. Are you planning on participating in this read-a-thon? Or in any other read-a-thons this month? Let me know!
(I'll be posting a kick-off post that, I think, I might just make my update post so we don't make it too complicated this time around, I might split it into two if it gets too long).

Edit: When this first went up it said the eighth, but it was suppose to be the ninth (I was wondering why it was eight days instead of seven). Whoops! Fixed now (I think).
