Logbook thread, for reporting your reading: http://www.librarything.com/topic/155221
Wiki page, for signing up and adding reading hours: http://www.librarything.com/wiki/index.php/ReadaThingJune2013
It's been too long since we've had a ReadaThing. This month is too soon, and May is going to be incredibly busy for me - but I propose a RaT for June. I like the week-long, so Wednesday to Tuesday, starting at midnight GMT.
People with kids - would early (while the kids are still in school) or later (when they're out), be better? Either works for me (no kids)(and yes, I know everyone's on a different schedule these days. If there isn't a mid-June dividing line for you, just ignore the question).
1. May 29 - June 4
2. June 5 - June 11
3. June 12 - June 18
4. June 19 - June 25
5. June 26 - July 2
Not doing polls. Just post which week is best (and second best, if you like), and if there's any that absolutely won't work for you. If a lot of responders can't do a week, we'll skip that one. I will decide on a week, by fiat if necessary, on May 13th - in time for the State of the Thing (right, Jeremy?).
I'm not putting a theme on the RaT itself. However, if anyone wants to propose a theme, I'll post it in the setup thread and on the Wiki (or you can), so that others may choose to participate in that theme. Sort of like the TIOLI challenge - where part of the fun is "how can I make this book fit one of the themes?". Extra points (highly virtual points) for reading a book that fits multiple themes (though not if you picked the theme! That's too easy).
For newcomers to the RaT - this is not a readathon, we don't expect anyone to read for a full week. If everything works out right, though, we have _someone_ reading for every hour during the whole week. There will be a wiki page for signing up for specific times; you can also sign up for general reading (which is what I mostly do, I'm never sure enough of my schedule), and then if you like you can put in when you actually read (to help fill in the schedule). There will be a complete timeline list, showing times in various timezones and when the days begin and end, to help you in scheduling your reading time. We'll all discuss what we choose to read, and you can (or not, if you don't want to) post about what and where and how you'll be reading (on the bus on the way to work. Curled up in my reading spot, with a cat next to me and a cup of tea. While watching the kids at the playground...). Pictures are nice but far from required. And when you're done, you can post a quick review (or, again, not). It's mostly for the fun of sharing reading time with people from all around the world.
Thanks a lot for organising it. I'll really missed the Readathing.
The ReadaThing will begin Tuesday, June 11 at midnight GMT and run until midnight GMT Monday, June 17 (in both cases, the midnight between Monday and Tuesday). (I adjusted the days just because it works better for me, especially at the beginning and end of the the RaT.)
I'll put up the wiki this week, with the full multi-time-zone schedule and all the rest. See you there!
There's a link at the end of the page to a PDF of the complete times for the RaT. Please, someone take a look at it and make sure I didn't screw up somewhere? Jean?
19> OK, I'll make it UTC/GMT. Done.
ETA: I'm speaking of the table only.
ETA2 : Oh. I see, I think. Two letters to indicate day of the week. I'd completely missed that. Duh...
Check the Announcement thread, too, for a little more information.
I'm going to try to read assiduously from my University's library, as I'm coming to the end of my degree and I'd like to make the most of the resources available to me while I'm still a student there. I've just started one book from the library, Camille Saint-Saens and His World, which was published just last year, and I'm already really enjoying it.
