Now, let's dial back a bit and go over a few things for those that haven't participated with our readathons before.
WHAT IS A READATHON?
A readathon is a special event hosted by someone within the book community. For our purposes, it's hosted by the Creating & Co book club group. During the time period of the readathon, we read books according to different challenges and do other fun stuff like reading sprints and photo challenges and even a costume contest!
For this readathon, we will have five book challenges:
- Group Read: TBA (visit our FB group to vote for the group read!)
- Deep Blue Sea
- Has a Map
- Takes place in a foreign land
- One Word Title
For these challenges, you can read one book that fits all the challenges or a different book for each challenge or do a little bit of both! It's up to you!
WHAT ARE THE PHOTO CHALLENGES?
We mentioned photo challenges because we love to encourage creativity over here at Creating & Co and what better way than to combine our love of reading and planners?!
With that in mind, we invite you to share the photos as you take them or all at once in the book club group AND if you share on social media use the hashtag #ccatlantis
Now here they are:
- TBR (To be read) Stack
- Recent Fave
- One Word Titles
- Treasured Cover
WHAT ARE READING SPRINTS?
A reading sprint is when one of the cohosts post in the facebook group to read for a certain amount of time. Everyone that can reads during that time and then reports back with how much they read. It's a lot of fun and a good way to meet your reading goals AND read with others!
WHAT OTHER EVENTS WILL THERE BE?
For this readathon, we will be doing a live show during the weekend of the readathon (On the 29th or 30th) for the group read! Make sure to check the group to find out when that will happen. We'll discuss the book--spoilers and all!
IS BUYING SOMETHING REQUIRED?
Absolutely NOT! To participate in the readathon, it's totally free! You just have to pick a book and read with us! Of course, we will have a bunch of items--like an exclusive planner kit, a matching bookmark, special washi, and a special enamel pin!
Don't forget, we'll be doing SIX readathons this year and each one will have a coordinating pin so make sure you collect them all!
