When: April 24, 2013 (beginning 6 am to 6 am April 25)
Where: Love at First Book & The Book Wheel
Check-ins at 2:00 pm, 9:00 pm and Midnight (EST)
Allison at The Book Wheel and I are hosting a Weekday Read-a-thon! We know that a lot of people are busy on the weekends with kids, family, studying, or work, so we want to make sure that they don’t miss out on all of the fun! This read-a-thon is a few days before the big Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon, so this is a great way to get prepared if you are planning to participate in it.
This is a pretty relaxed event, so our only challenge to you is to read a bit more than you read on a normal day. If you can only squeeze in 5 extra minutes, that’s okay! We know you’re busy and want everyone and anyone to participate. We will offer a few tips and tricks to help you get through the day, as well as a couple of challenges in case the mood strikes you. And, of course, we will have a few live Twitter chats (30 minutes each) using the hashtag #WeekdayRead
But just because it’s a relaxed event doesn’t mean that we aren’t doing giveaways! We have some AMAZING things to give out, including some bookish jewelry from Suzanne Weinerts and Designs by Venita, books, and more! We’re going to extend the giveaway entries through the weekend so that those participating in the Dewey Read-a-thon have a chance to enter. Be sure to bookmark this page for when the raffle goes live!
I hope you join us!
Full Disclosure: We planned this Read-a-thon when both of us were sans jobs, however Allison has since joined the 9-5 workforce and plan to be a shining example of how to incorporate reading into a busy, working person’s schedule.
