Read Dangerously Read-A-Thon Participant Sign-Up

At the end of the month, I will be kicking off my big event to celebrate my 20th birthday. As you may remember, part of that event is a read-a-thon.

The read-a-thon will run from 10 a.m. on Thursday, August 11, to 10 p.m. on Saturday, August 13 (start and end time is according to your time zone). To sign up, simply write a participation post sometime between now and August 10. That is the last day to sign up. Here's a sample post; you can copy and paste it or write your own.
