The Summer Relaxathon: Coming June 4th-10th
Welcome to your first (or second...or third) Creating & Co readathon!! I'm hoping this post will answer any and all questions you have so that when it's time to go, you'll be ready!
WHAT IS A READATHON?
A readathon is a special event hosted in the Creating & Co book club facebook 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.
OK, BUT WHAT'S A READING SPRINT?
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.
SO WHAT ARE THE READING CHALLENGES?
There are five for this readathon and you can complete as many of them or as little of them as you want to participate. Here are the Relaxathon challenges:
- Group Book: Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
- Pool/beachy read
- something dealing with water
- something less than 200 pages
- related to travel
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PHOTO CHALLENGES?
For the photo challenges, we want you to get as creative as possible. Each day, there will be a thread in the group for posting your photos and we'd also love if you shared across social media. If you share on IG or twitter, please use the hashtag #ccrelaxathon so we can find your posts easily! Each day as a new challenge:
- TBR Stack
- Favorite Reading Spot
- Related to Water
- Bookish Planner Goodies
- Related to the Sunset
- Reading Snack
- Planned and Done
ARE THERE OTHER EVENTS?
In the past, we've had a few bonus events including crafts, food, scavenger hunts and movie watchalongs. For this one, stay tuned to the fb group and blog for event announcements! Rumor on the street is we might have some fun things in the works!
WHAT'S THIS ABOUT A STICKER KIT?
For each readathon, we have a sticker kit specifically for the week. It's such a fun way to combine our love of planning and stickers! For this readathon, it's extra special b/c we'll be adding more new products, including an ereader case, a tote bag, a bookmark and die cut stickers! It's going to be really exciting so mark your planner for April 29th at 10am!
DO I HAVE TO BUY THINGS TO PARTICIPATE?
Absolutely not! The only thing you have to do to participate is be part of the facebook group, read at least one prompt and join in with the fun! Any and all money spent is 100% optional--us planner girls just like our bookish planner goodies :D
Overall, I am so excited for this event and I hope you are too! I can't wait to see you in the facebook group chatting about books! If you have any other questions, leave them as a comment and I will get back to you!
