I’ve never participated in a readathon before.
But when I saw the Beat-the-Heat Readathon hosted by Auntie Spinelli Reads and Phantastic Reads – I thought it sounded like fun. The premise – two weeks to read as many books as you can. Sounds good to me – especially as I need as much motivation as I can to make a dent on my to-read list.
The rules are pretty simple.
The Beat the Heat Readathon runs from July 29th through August 11th. What does this readathon entail, you ask? Well, read as much or as little as you want – the main point is to READ! You set your own goal, and for two weeks you read as many books as you can/want to reach your goal!
There will be mini-challenges throughout the Readathon for participants, along with a grand prize giveaway at the end!
Sign up at Auntie Spinelli Reads or Phantasmic Reads. You may join whenever you like, but to be eligible for our grand prize giveaway, you must sign up by August 5th.
To join, all you have to do is make a sign-up post – even if it’s just a “Let’s do this!” thing – and add your post URL to the linky below! You can put your goals and progress (will be required for the final giveaway) in your sign-up post, or you can make it separate. Totally up to you! Feel free to copy and paste this handy little list for your post. We don’t mind.
In order to enter for the grand prize, you must have a post to keep track of your progress so we can see that you participated.
That looks like something I can do.
Now this particular readathon began on the 29th. But there’s still plenty of time to sign up and participate if it interests you.
The other readathon I thought looked cooled was the Lux Readathon hosted by StuckInBooks, Just a Book Love and K-Books
Spanning over just three days, the aim for this readathon is to read as many of the books in the Lux series by Jennifer L Armentrout to be prepared for the release of Origin (Lux #4) on August 27.
I started early this morning and read Shadows (Lux #0.5) for the first time. I think it’s lucky that I read Obsidian first or I’d never have liked Daemon as much as Dawson. Seriously – I’m not usually into novellas but this one is fantastic. And I also got a start on re-reading Obsidian.
