Summer Lovin' Read-a-thon

The Summer Lovin’ Readathon is a week-long readathon event hosted by seven independent bloggers! (Oh, Chrys!, Tumbling Books, Effortlessly Reading, Love Life Read, Shelf Addiction, Read Sleep Repeat, and Reviewing Wonderland)

I'm thrilled to participate in my first read-a-thon! I've always wanted to do one of these, and I'm hoping to make some kind of dent in my TBR pile, which is currently some ridiculous number (not that it stops me from adding to it). This might be the perfect opportunity to tackle my bookshelves at home, which hold quite a few books that I bought but never got around to reading.

The Details:

Spend the week reading at your own pace, when and how you want to. There will be daily challenges for awesome prizes and opportunities to get points toward the Grand Prize Packs.

As if that weren’t enough—the week will end with a 24-hr marathon readathon! Twitter parties, mini-challenges, games, prizes given EVERY HOUR, and more chances to get points toward the Grand Prize Packs.

Sign-ups will be open through July 6th. I’m in, are you?!

    1. I wanted to sign up for Bout of Books but knew I wasn't going to have any time to read that week. So I was super happy to find out about this read-a-thon because these events seem like so much fun!

  3. I will def. be joining! I looove read-a-thons. It helps me to not fall into reading slumps. What books are you going to read for this event? I think I want to read the Percy Jackson series.

    1. Good question! I'm leaning towards going through as many unread books from my shelves as possible. Knowing me, though, I'll probably borrow a stack of library books right before the read-a-thon, lol.

      Great idea to read the Percy Jackson books! I've only read The Lightning Thief so far; that's definitely a series that I need to finish.

  4. I'm going to participate in this one, too! I particularly like that being off work means I can actually do the 24-hour read-a-thon that's part of week. :)

    1. I'm especially excited about the 24-hour part. Lots of caffeine for me that day, lol.
