Just One Day Read-a-Thon

So to celebrate the release of Just One Day by Gayle Forman, Penguin Teen is putting together this awesome interactive event on Twitter called the Just One Day Read-a-Thon. Basically, from 5pm EST Friday, January 11 to 5pm EST Saturday, January 12, a bunch of people (hopefully) will be reading their copy of Just One Day in just one day! Not only that, but by using the hashtag #justoneday, you can see what other readers think of the book and certain scenes as well as post your own thoughts.

Afterward, from 7-8pm EST on Saturday, Gayle Forman will be on Twitter answering questions (maybe even giving some hints as to what goes on in the followup, Just One Year, out later this year). So don't miss out on that!

Here's an awesome banner Penguin made for the event:

Doesn't this sound awesome?! Luckily, I have off from work those days (and no, I didn't request off; they must have somehow known I'd need to be off!) and will totally be participating. I hope you all will too. Leave a comment letting me know if you're going to take part so we can keep in touch during the 24 hours to chat about the book!

So be sure to get a copy of Just One Day when it releases on January 8 and try to hold off until the weekend to read the book.

I also joked with the publicist asking if they'd do a Just One Year Read-a-Thon when that book came out, hehe. They decided not to dignify that with an answer in the response back.

But anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing you all there!
