Hosted by Michelle @ Seasons of Reading
I’m signed up!! Want to join me? Details below.
I have been in a MAJOR reading slump since the beginning of the year. I mean MAJOR. I have read only 9 books this year!!! That is awful!! I only remember once, in all the many years of reading, that this has happened where it lasted this long.
I signed on for the Spring Read-A-Thon, thinking it would help, and nothing. I think, during that one, I read for a total of 2-3 hours in a week. So going to give it another try!!
Here are the details for this coming week’s read-a-thon:
It’s time to sign up for the High Summer Read-a-Thon! I hope you will join me this month for the week of July 22. We will start on Monday, 7/22 at 12:00am CST and finish on Sunday, 7/28 at 11:59pm CST (adjust times according to your time zone). Read what you like during the week. I’ve decided it’s not about quantity, but quality (although those who rock the quantity…I salute you!). So, if you have kids and want to read children’s books, go for it! As always, this is a week long read-a-thon, but you can join in and read whenever it’s convenient for you. It’s all about being laid back and getting some reading done.
I will not be hosting any mini-challenges, as we learned from my last few read-a-thons, focusing on the reading rocks. However, if anyone else would like to host a mini-challenge (or giveaway), you are more than welcome…just let me know. If you know someone who would like to donate a prize, or authors, if you would like to promote your book through the read-a-thon, please contact me via the tab at the top of the blog. We will also have a few scheduled Twitter chats again. I will announce the times in the starting line post. Our Twitter hashtag is #HSreadathon
You do not have to have a blog. You can sign up using your Goodreads, Twitter, or Facebook accounts.
If you are planning on joining me (I hope so), please sign up in the linky below. You don’t have to do a post now, but if you would like to help me spread the word, that would be great. Don’t forget that this is just the sign-up linky. There will be a starting line sign-in and wrap-up linkies during the read-a-thon and doing both is required to be eligible for the giveaway (s). I will also be adding a mid-week check-in post, but you are not required to link up for the giveaway (s). Just if you want us to check out your progress. You can sign in at the starting line any time during the week up until Friday night at midnight CST.
