The idea for this event was inspired by Mallory (The Haunted Reading Room) when she asked in the comments, "Can we do a sci-fi readathon sometime? I thought to myself, "Why not?" After all, I do host the Christmas Spirit Read-a-Thon in between my four other read-a-thons, AND I am sorely behind on my Sci-Fi reading. So, here we are...Sci-Fi Summer!
- Read-a-Thon dates: Wednesday, June 1 at 12:00am CST until Tuesday, June 7 at 11:59pm CST (adjust your time zone accordingly). I wanted to try out a different day configuration this time.
- Since Sci-Fi is a very specific genre, this will be strictly reading science fiction during the event. However, since fantasy is so closely related to science fiction, if you feel more comfortable reading fantasy, that is also fine.
- to check in on Twitter, we'll use hashtag #SciFiSummerJune
- as usual, you do not have to have a blog to participate...feel free to link up and check in from Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, etc. These days, it seems most of our activity goes on in our Facebook group which I love. The interaction in our group is fabulous!
Since this is a spur of the moment event, I'm not sure I will be able to secure any prize donations, but I will offer a small prize from me.
I hope you're as excited as I am! If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me via the contact tab.
