One week from today begins MRS. YINGLING’S version of a fun way to read a lot of books. The MG Readathon is a challenge to read as many books as you can in 48 hours. All the details are here.
I will be starting at 10 am on Friday the 15th and finish up on Sunday the 17th. You can join the madness yourself by signing up next Friday morning. My journey will have to include breaks for sleep and various commitments, but I hope to read at least 20 books during that time.
My first will be a re-read of a classic:
My goal is at least 20 more books. I will update my other reads at least 4 times during the event. So long for now, it’s time to prepare my stack of Readathon titles.
Blogging about middle grade books or authors next week? Join the celebration.
All you have to do is blog about a middle grade book on a Monday (contests, author interviews, or anything middle grade related also count). Email me the title of the book or feature and a link to your blog at gpcolo[at]gmail[dot]com
Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and please don’t forget to say what book or author you’re featuring) You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.
Thanks for spreading the middle grade love and for being a part of this awesome tradition begun by Shannon Messenger and carried on here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE! (CLICK HERE FOR PAST MMGM POSTS)
*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.

Your first book for the marathon is still one of my all time favorites.
Great target and best of luck! I am going to participate also, though my target is 10! My sister happens to be visiting from the UK next weekend so I will be encouraging her to have long lie-ins (or maybe I’ll get her to join in!). Looking forward to it!
This sounds like a solid plan! I haven’t quite finalized what I’m reading, so we’ll hvae to see. I may start about noon on Friday. Need to get the starting line post written. Whoooo!
This is WILD! I can’t do it, but go for it!!
