I survived the Readathon! And I had so much fun doing it, too! I didn’t make it anywhere near the 24 hour mark, but I did spend from about noon until 10:30 last night reading, tweeting, snacking, and participating in mini-challenges!
I only ended up reading the one book (A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall) and I’m totally okay with that. I had said that I wanted to dabble in a bit of everything that the event had to offer and boy did I! I think I spent more time on Twitter than anything else! I also had a blast completing several of the mini-challenges :) Here are a few of my favorites:
Book Staging Challenge
Stage your book with either something that is on the cover or with something that goes with the book and then take a picture of it. Hosted by On the Wings of Books.
140 Character Cheer Challenge
Come up with a cheer that is 140 characters long to cheer along your fellow Readathon-ers. Hosted by Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity.
Color Cover Challenge
Pick a color(s). Find four books with covers almost completely in that color/those colors. Take a picture. Hosted by Wishful Endings.
Book Spine Poetry Challenge
Using the titles on book spines, make a short poem at least three “books” long/tall. Hosted by Ticket to Anywhere.
The space between you against me—
Lovely, dark, and deep.
Bright young things wild awake,
that summer under the Tuscan sun.
Overall, I had a fabulous time! It was a great experience and one that I would definitely partake in again! I’m pretty sure that the next Readathon is sometime in April and I already have a game plan formulating in my mind :)
