>Summer Mini-Readathon 2011 Sign-Up


OK ladies and gents, it’s time to get the sign-up started for the readathon I’m hosting!

The Sarah Says Summer Mini-Readathon is going to be on Sunday, July 10th. Mark your calendars!

I’m thinking that I will be reading from 10 am to 10 pm, Eastern time. For those of you elsewhere in the US, that’s…

9 am to 9 pm Central time

8 am to 8 pm Mountain time

7 am to 7 pm Pacific time

For those of you elsewhere, I really have no idea what time that is, lol. But please know that no matter where any one is, feel free to participate ANYTIME on Sunday. I’m choosing 10 to 10 because those are pretty general awake-time hours for me. Choose whatever hours work best for you.

There will be 5 mini-challenges total, so about every three hours from beginning to end. I figure that’s a fun amount without it being too tedious to get up and log on for a couple minutes. I don’t wanna disturb anyone’s reading time. Also, you can complete the mini-challenges until NOON on Monday the 11th (Eastern time again). So no rush if you don’t feel up to them.

Each mini-challenge you complete will count as one entry into a major prize at the end. I might do one or two smaller prizes as well. So, you’ll have 5 potential entries. I haven’t decided what the major prize will be yet, but I’ll draw the winner (or winners?) at noon on Monday.

I think that’s all the info I have for now. There will be a tab at the top of my blog with Readathon info, including some fun readathon logos / buttons later. So you know, keep checking back.

Sign-up below! Sign-up will stay open until Friday, July 8th.

  1. >I so desperately want to do this but I'm frightened of read-a-thons. I've never done one. Sundays are typically my day off from all the rest of the world so I probably could arrange it. What if I only end up reading one book? Does that put me in the dork category?


  2. >Sounds fun! I signed up. I've always wanted to do a readathon but they are never on days I can participate. Sundays are usually the best for me – I usually just have to work a few hours!


  3. >Is there anyway I could participate in this on Saturday instead of Sunday, or is that kind of against the spirit of the readathon? I have church and family responsibilities on Sundays so I wouldn't have much time to read that day.


  4. >I've always wanted to do one of these, and now there's finally one on a day where I don't already have plans! Yay! I'm really excited. πŸ™‚ Now, to choose which books to read….
