Wanna see a kick ass competition?

The lovely ladies Kate from The Neverending Shelf and Kristen from the Bookworming in the 21st Century are going into battle! They not only share a close bond but they both also have a competitive spirit. So why not settle this once and for all with a reading challenge! And plus they really need to get through their TBR piles, actually we all do :)

Here's some info on the Blue vs. Red Red-A-Thon Challenge:

Beginning Friday, March 19th at 8 am (CST), Kristen and Kate will begin reading till there hearts content until Monday, March 22nd at 10pm (CST).

There goal is to read as much as they can in hopes of getting their TBR pile down a little bit.

They agreed to the following conditions:
  • A winner will be determined between them based on the amount of pages read.
  • A limit of 5 graphic novels / manga are allowed.
  • Page counts will be announced at 8 pm (CST) each day on our sidebars.
Now, how do us readers come into play?

In the spirit of competition, they are asking their lovely followers to pick a side:

Red - Kristen

Blue - Kate

In the end, there can only be one winner. And as a reward for picking the winning side, the read-a-thon winner will be sending one of the lovely supporters a box of mystery books based on their reading that weekend.

Why should you vote for Kate?

She has some really cool books lined up for this weekend (list will be displayed on her blog Friday.) Also, she's my girl and one of my affiliates, so she's an awesome person in my book! ;) Love ya Kristen....but I'm kind of biased - Vote for *cough*Kate*cough*

It is also important to point out that Kristen and Kate read at about the same speed. Some are under the impression that she is a super, fast speed reader...well, Kate is too. Take last month for example: they both read the same amount of books. Coincidence? I think not.

How to vote:

All you need to do is leave a comment on the blogger's read-a-thon post that you have chosen to support. Votes will be accepted until Thursday, March 18th at Midnight (CST). One vote per person. (INTERNATIONAL)

And if you want to put your team's button on your sidebar or do a post about the competition... we won't stop you :)
