Ready, Start, GO! Summer Mini-Readathon #1

OK ya’ll! It’s here! This here is the first post & first mini-challenge of the first ever Sarah Says Summer Mini-Readathon! (For my readers not participating – sorry, but there’s going to be a lot of posts here today.)

Let me go over again how the challenges / prize system works. There will be 5 mini-challenges today – each one you complete counts as an entry to win a prize at the end, giving you a 5 chances to win. You’ll have until 6 PM US Eastern time tomorrow to complete them, and prize winners will probably be announced on Tuesday. The prizes are a $30 e-gift card to Amazon, a $10 e-gift card to Amazon, and another $10 e-gift card to Amazon. Winners will be selected randomly.

Now, let’s get to the first mini-challenge! It’s pretty basic – a start-of-the-event survey. Just copy into a blog post, answer the questions, post it, and then come here to enter the link.

1. Tell everyone three random things about yourself:

2. Is this your first readathon?

3. Do you have any specific goals for today? (# of books or pages to read?)

4. Do you have any specific snacks, drinks, or books planned?

5. What hours do you plan on reading during? (For example, I’m aiming for 10 AM to 10 PM Eastern time).

Just a quick note for Mr. Linky – please put your name @ your blog name. For example, I would enter “Sarah @ Sarah Says” if I was submitting something in Mr. Linky. When entering the url, please link directly to the post, not just your blog. You’ll need to enter your post in Mr. Linky for it to count as an entry for the prizes.

Feel free to visit other blogs and comment if you need a break. In fact, I encourage it. Also, if you feel like tweeting during the readathon, use the hashtag #minireadathon. Or if you need to tweet directly to me, my Twitter name is SarahSaysRead. Otherwise, check back here in about 3 hours for the next mini-challenge!

OK… ready… set…. READ!

  1. Sarah, I had signed up, but I won't be able to participate. I forgot that we are doing a Great American Bake Sale this week at work and I have to bake, bake, bake. So sorry, maybe the next one 😦


  2. Oh no! I completely forgot about the readathon! I'm so disappointed I forgot! Well, I hope you'll finish many books and have a great time reading!
