Sci-Fi Summer Readathon 2022 - Boldly go!

As always, a shout out to the person who originally inspired this event...Mallory (The Haunted Reading Room). Here we are at year seven! I can hardly believe it, but I'm so glad I started this. I look forward to it every year. I don't read enough science fiction so this helps me broaden my horizons. It might be the same for you. 👽

  • As with all our readathons, Sci-Fi Summer is also a month long readathon! June 1st at 12:00 am EDT to June 30th 11:59 pm EDT (adjust your time zone accordingly...there's a time zone converter in the sidebar menu).

  • 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, our hashtag is #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. Also, we have our Facebook group, our Facebook page, our Goodreads group, and we're on Instagram.

  • Our Discord server for Seasons of Reading can be accessed via this invite link: The link is also in the sidebar menu.
    You can pop in and chat during our events at any time, or even outside of events. We will not be doing live chats (like Zoom), just typing in the text channels. Introduce yourself in the #general channel, and look for the readathon specific channel for the current readathon.  The link is also in the sidebar menu.
  • As always, please refer to the Guidelines page (link also in the sidebar menu) if you have any questions. For any newbies, there are specific guidelines we use for wrapping up and the giveaway. You can always contact me via the contact me tab if you have any questions.
  • Grab a button! You can get it from the sidebar using the handy grab code, or save the image to your computer to share. 
  • Every readathon, I offer a charity donation prize (currently Ukraine relief charities) to one winner. This prize is awarded at the beginning of the readathon. Details on how it works are on the guidelines page. I will also be offering another small prize. Hopefully, I will get some prize donations (see above). If I do, I will post the prize page during the first week of the event.
Any questions at all? Leave me a comment, or send me a message via the contact me link in the sidebar menu.
