Reading Challenge

The 24.5 Read-A-Thon!

Hey, y’all! I’m back with a sweet little announcement! I’m co-hosting the 24.5 Read-A-Thon with Joanna-Marie! Running from January 12 through January 13, the premise is simple – read as much as possible in 24 hours and five minutes!

If you’d like to participate, step right up and join in!

The read-a-thon Twitter hashtag is #245thon, feel free to use it as often as you’d like and keep up with fellow challengers!

Joanna-Marie and I will be hosting scheduled [and not-so-scheduled] sprints throughout the day! Here’s the schedule we have set up:

January 12th

  • 5:00 PM PST/8:00 PM EST – Joanna [@wetnoses_books]
  • 8:00 PM PST/11:00 PM EST – Maggie [@thenovelorange]

January 13th

  • 4:00 PM PST/7:00 PM EST – Maggie [@thenovelorange]
  • 7:00 PM PST/10:00 PM EST – Joanna [@wetnoses_books]

P.S. Our Twitter is @245readathon!

I’ve also created a linky – just because I adore linkups – for y’all who would like to announce your participation in that manner!

 Loading InLinkz ...

P.P.S. There MAY be a prize of a book of choice for the victor [whichever participant reads the MOST]! 😀 All you have to do is show us proof of your total reading time – just snap a picture of your choice of reading timer once the read-a-thon is complete! [DON’T FORGET TO TIME YOUR READING!]

In a nutshell – JOIN US and read your brains out for 24 hours and 5 minutes!

Love, Maggie

    I wish I could join read-a-thons but the ones I really would like to participate in always take place around times I get real busy, it’s so sad!

      LOL! I totally understand! It was hard for me to co-host this read-a-thon, let alone participate! 😀

    What a good idea. I probably won’t participate in the whole thing, but maybe I’ll read for a couple hours.

    I am not sure yet if I will be at my practicum or not during this time, so once I know I will see if it works with my schedule. This sounds awesome though! I hope you have much success with it!

    Okay I’m definitely joining this! What do you recommend to use to time our reading?

    08 . 01 . 2018
    • Maggie

      Yay, Lia! For timing, I’m thinking your phone stopwatch/timer might be the easiest! I think that’s what I’ll do! i wish that reading app, damn, I can’t think of what it’s called, didn’t mess up all the time – it was great for timing when it worked!

  11. Erin @ Paperbackstash

    I can’t do a full read-a-thon due to the timing but will try to participate some. I mentioned it in my post tracking my winter respite month long read-a-thon as well. Since I can’t read as much as I’d like for the 24-hr-a thon, i didn’t make its own post about it yet due to that. excited though, hope it’s one of many that you end up hosting.
