Sci-Fi Summer #Readathon - Sign up #SciFiJune


As always, a shout out to the person who originally inspired this event...Mallory (The Haunted Reading Room). This is our third year, folks...and we are now a two week long event!

How do you like the Fahrenheit 451 background? I'm going to be reading the book in June with my Goodreads group, TuesBookTalk. It's a reread (I think). Honestly, it has been so long, I can't remember! Really looking forward to the HBO film coming next weekend!

Details:
  • Read-a-Thon dates: Friday, June 1 at 12:00am CDT until Thursday, June 14 at 11:59pm CDT (adjust your time zone accordingly...there's a time zone converter in the sidebar menu). We do a different day configuration (rather than starting on a Monday and ending on a Sunday) to go along with the quirkiness of science fiction. 👽
  • Since science fiction is a very specific genre, this will be strictly reading science fiction during the event. However, since fantasy is so closely related to the genre (often grouped together), if you feel more comfortable reading fantasy, that is also fine.
  • to check in on social media, we'll use our new hashtag #SciFiJune
  • 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. We have a great community over there...and it's not just during readathons. Everyone should feel free to post in there any time. 
  • As always, please refer to the Guidelines page if you have any questions, or you can contact me via the contact me tab (both are in the sidebar menu).
  • Grab a button! You can get it from the sidebar using the handy grab code, or save the image to your computer to share.

As with the Christmas Spirit Readathon, I usually do not secure prize donations, but I will be offering one small prize this time. However, if anyone would like to donate prizes, please let me know. 

I'm excited that Sci-Fi Summer is now a tradition! I hope you're looking forward to it as much as I am!

Spring into Horror #Readathon - Wrap Up #SpringHorror


Another one comes to a close. It went by so fast and I'm not ready for it to be over. (Like I don't read horror all the time anyway. lol) Of course, there are always readathons just around the corner. Bout of Books is in two weeks, and our Sci-Fi Summer is coming up June 1 - 14, and then High Summer the entire month of July. Such fun for us readathon junkies. Plus, we keep things fun in our Facebook group between times. We have quite a fun community over there. That's thanks to you guys. ❤

I'd like to thank you all for joining me. I hope you enjoyed it! Be sure to add your wrap-up link below and please double check that your name is listed in the sign up/starting line linky at this post so you will be eligible for the giveaway. You will also need to fill out the form on the prize page if you would like to win a prize. You have until Friday, May 4 at 11:59 pm central time to add your wrap-up link and to fill out the form for prize entry. I will draw giveaway winners in the following few days after the wrap-up deadline so keep a look out in your email inbox (or spam folder, just in case) for an email from truebookaddict. (Please be sure to note the system of drawing winners in the giveaway details on the prize page).

I'd like to send out a big thank you to Robert Stephen Parry, Erin Al-Mehairi, Glenn Rolfe, Hunter Shea, and Sinister Grin Press for their generous prize donations. Let's hear it for them. Hear, hear!

Give yourselves a big round of applause, no matter how much or little reading you accomplished. It's all about the experience, in my opinion.

I will have the sign up and button for the Sci-Fi Summer Readathon posted soon. Stay tuned.

Until next time...
