    Hello Priya
    This is a great concept to encourage reading books of different genres.
    I agree with CB and HMA that d time of one week was a little less, if u actually get down to reading, a book will take less than a day or two. But sometimes finding that day or two is not possible.
    But otherwise getting links to some interesting books was super.

    I enjoyed taking part in readathon contest. Its an interesting concept. Yes, annual event of this contest sounds perfect. When I signed up, never thought I could finish five books in five weeks. But the selected books of different genre kept it interesting. Time frame can be extended to ten days.

    Thank you moderators for organising readathon for us!!
