The goal you set is entirely up to you – maybe you don’t even want to set a goal. Apart from reading books to shorten your list, though, the readathon includes challenges from participants (with prizes to enter for), activities to join in, and general fun and mayhem.
Read all about it here – Wishful Endings – and sign up at any time through to 20th September.
I’ll be doing a Goals post on the first day of the Readathon, so you’ll see what I’m planning to read then.
I’ll also be setting you a challenge on 19th September, for which I’ll be giving a prize.
This is the schedule for the read-a-thon, including challenges and giveaways (will be added to as we get closer):
9/11: Kick-Off with giveaways. Giveaways will include:
- $15 Amazon gift card (INT)
- Book of winner’s choice from their TBR (INT)
9/17: Twitter Chat (Twitter Chat will be from 8-9 PM EDT)
9/18: Mid-Point Check-In
9/19: Jemima’s reading challenge & giveaway (Book or ebook prize, open internationally)
9/24: Read-a-thon Ends (no challenge)
9/25: Wrap-Up (giveaway won’t close until the end of day to allow everyone to link up)
I’ll be doing a post to kick off on September 11th, and that will include a list of books I’m aiming to read. I’ll update that each time I finish with a short summary, and add the cover. So you’ll be able to see how I’m progressing (as if you care!)
