Read-a-Thon Calendar 2016 edition

I thought I would update the list of Readathons that I posted last year.  Bout of Books #15 is already in the bag (it was 1/4/2016 - 1/10/2016), and as I posted earlier #24in48 is this weekend and still accepting participants.  (I’m unfortunately writing a report for work instead of participating, but you can’t have everything).

 

In case you want to play along, here are the Readathons I am aware of.  Please add a comment if you know of any others.

May be defunct.  The associated blog doesn’t appear to have been updated since mid-2015.

Typically overlaped with Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon.

 

http://www.littlebookowl.com/p/read-thon-calendar.html  appears to be keeping a ReadAThon Calendar as well and included several other hosts that I wasn’t aware of such as
