Welcome to Romance Book Junkies' first ever read-a-thon. Like most of us I have a to be read pile a mile high and what better way to clear up some of this mess than to host a read-a-thon. I have some updates from my original plans based on some feedback from participants. I will now be having International prizes so everyone can win something and I had some donations from authors so I now have 17 prizes to give away. Which I'm going to list below with some of the details about the read-a-thon for any new comers. So make sure you read everything.
Here are the details:
* The read-a-thon will be held from September 27th to the 29th. Within this time frame the challenge is to read for 24 hours. No matter how you do it for example you could read 8 hours per day, you could read 12 hours for 2 days or you could read 24 hours straight (for our hard core readers). Its up to you how you schedule your 24 hours. Just have fun with it.
* There will be 8 challenges throughout the read-a-thon with some great prizes. All of them will be posted here on my blog one at a time but I will announce on twitter #RJreadathon when their available. All winners will be chosen on the 30th. I will be posting on my blog with more details the day of the read-a-thon. Here are two of the swag packs that will be given away. Just to give you a tease.
* I will also be hosting a twitter party on the 28th from 8:00pm to 9:30pm were I will be giving away 2 huge swag packs and 9 book prizes. So don't miss out!
* We are all going to stay connected, update our status and have our twitter party at hashtag #RJreadathon.
* If you do not have a blog that's ok too you can post your check in status/schedule and then accomplishments at the end on twitter to enter the challenge. So all are welcome.
* If you don't use twitter and have no blog you can also do this on my opening post on the day the read-a-thon starts. I'm trying to make this as easy as possible so everyone can participate. So that's two comments. One at the beginning of the read-a-thon and one at the end.
I hope your as excited and pumped up about this read-a-thon as Ava and I are.
