Now's the time to finish all those books you SAID you were going to read in 2012, but still haven't finished. :)
We will all start reading at Zero Hour UTC on Sunday, December 23, 2012 (which translates to sometime on Saturday, December 22nd for those of us in the Americas. The end time will be staggered, with the ReadaThing ending at the stroke of Midnight as 2012 ends and 2013 begins wherever you happen to be!
The Wiki is still being prepared, but for now start thinking about what you will read and post it below. Also feel free to introduce any other special themes you would like to consider beyond the obvious "Trying to finish all those books I started (or intended to read) in 2012"!

Details and signups (both Timeline and No Timeline) are at the Wiki: http://www.librarything.com/wiki/index.php/Final_2012_ReadaThing
PLEASE look it over and let me know what I've messed up!
I think of her everytime I open a book.
I've enlisted in the "No Timeline Readers" list as well in ''Hourly Timeline Signup''. I probably will get a lot of reading time and therefore I'll enlist into the gaps if needed.
What will I read?
First, I've got several Members Giveaway and one Early Review and they are waiting to be read.
Secondly, I joined the Santathing and I hope the books will arrive befor Christmas.
And last but not least I've got a big pile from the TBR shelf.
For this reason I'm not afraid that I won't find a book, rather that with all the family festive gatherings the reading time could run short ;-)
If we read more than our proposed time, should we fill in the times we actually read?
I really want to try and finish Don Quixote which I started months ago and then got distracted by many other books. I would also like to read the last of the Matthew Shardlake series and be up to date with that. I'm expecting an Early Reviewer book, too.
I tend to sign up for a few times, but then read at other times as well . . . adding my name to the timeline after I read.
No requirement to do that, I just like to have the record of when I read.
The goal is to keep the RaT as flexible as possible, so a variety of reading habits can be accommodated.
Read & Enjoy!
I hope you'll enjoy your free time and this season is definitely great for any reading
Probably going to be reading some Graham Greene books like Brighton Rock, The Power and The Glory, The Quiet American and/or The Heart of the Matter. That's what I have planned so far, although I have started Ulysses and will probably be hitting that as well on the side. I ain't sacred of you Joyce!
Per gli italiani, adesso che ho tempo vedo di recuperare qualcosa: due di Camilleri, due di Malvaldi e, se riesco, "La torre" di Tellkamp. Natale di relax.....
I have a 2 week holiday over Christmas - several library requests have already arrived so I will definitely be participating but not sure when exactly.
>16 sbaldi59: no need to apologize for your reading choices sbaldi59, I wish I could read Italian!
Still, I tend to read more whilst we are RVing, so I'm hopeful I'll manage to put a dent in a book or three.
Or, feel free to leave me a message (here or on my profile) and I'll try to help you sort it out.
Many, many thanks for all your effort and organisation, it's absolutely fabulous. I'm looking forward for the final Readathing.
all the best
I signed up for the "No Timeline Readers" list, this is always a busy time for me (this year there is also a new family member: a kitten), but I hope to find some hours to read.
On my TBR shelf there are the French version of Suite Française, Architects of Annihilation, and the Italian translation of Iron Council. I'll re-read Animal Farm (in English this time), because it's my son's homework and we like to share the readings.
The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory for my Dec book club read
The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent my Jan. book club read.
I may decide to pick up other books while reading these. I have already signed up for some times may add some if I get time or as I read.
I'm trying to finish The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson before the end of the year. Only about 400 pages to go!
