Sci-Fi Summer Readathon - Wrap it up! #SciFiSummerJune

The week went by SO fast! I can't believe it's over already. I've been thinking I might make it two weeks next year, if enough people are enthusiastic about it. So, weigh in when/if you leave a comment.

I hope everyone enjoyed the readathon and that you were able to get some good SciFi (or fantasy) reading in. I'd like to thank you all so much for joining me. 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 leave a comment on the Midweek Check In post (with a way to contact you if you win), if you haven't already. You have until Saturday, June 10 by 11:59pm CDT to add your wrap-up link and leave a comment on the post mentioned above. I will email the winners within a few days following the deadline so keep a look out in your email inbox (or spam folder, just in case) for an email from truebookaddict AT gmail DOT com.

Hope to see you next time at the High Summer Readathon, coming in July (17 - 30). Sign up coming soon! I've created the button (below) and will be adding a grab code in the sidebar soon. Also, in case you didn't hear in the Facebook group, there is going to be an extra special event during High Summer this year. The final weekend, on July 29 and 30, we are having a 48 hour Christmas in July Readathon! I don't know about you, but I'm a Christmas fanatic (I guess my year round Christmas blog gave me away 😉) so I'm pretty excited about this! I will be creating a special button just for it soon so keep a look out here or in the Facebook group.

That's it! Thanks again. I do hope you had fun...and good luck to those who enter the giveaway!

I cannot believe how fast this readathon is flying by! I have not done much reading, although I am enjoying Jason Parent's People of the Sun so far. I will be by to visit your blog posts. I promise. I have been seeing your posts in the Facebook group, and have been commenting. I'm so thrilled with the enthusiasm for this readathon. You guys rock!

Giveaway time!

I will make a $15 donation to the winner's choice of a human rights organization, such as the ACLU, Boys and Girls Club, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Amnesty International, It Gets Better, Planned Parenthood, or another human rights organization of your choice, perhaps your local chapter or a local organization. This giveaway is open internationally.

Winner's choice of a Science Fiction Kindle book title from Amazon (priced at $2.99 or less).

Sci-Fi Summer Readathon - Starting Post #SciFiSummerJune

SciFi Summer starts now (or it started 25 minutes ago)! I'm excited! Hope you are too. 👽

Here are the details again from the sign up post:

  • Read-a-Thon dates: Thursday, June 1 at 12:00am CDT until Wednesday, June 7 at 11:59pm CDT (adjust your time zone accordingly). 
  • 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 social media, 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. We have such a great community over there!
If you have any questions about how things work, check out the guidelines tab above or the sign up post, or you can always leave me a comment (or send me a message via the contact form). The linky below is the same one as the sign up linky. If you do a starting line/goal post, just add your link again, but be sure to put "goal post" beside your name, i.e. Michelle/The True Book Addict (goal post).

I'm offering a couple of prizes. Our mid-week check in on Sunday will also be the prize page this time out.

That's it! Good luck and have fun. I'm pretty excited to finally be focusing on some Sci-Fi reading. Long neglected.
