High Summer Readathon - Mid-Event Check-in

I hope the late summer reading is going well for you. Let me know your progress, or leave a link, in the comments.

If anyone wants to chat in real time, remember we now have a Discord here. If you haven't joined yet, you can join via the link above as well.

Congrats to the winner of the charity prize, Mallory Haws. Check your email, Mallory! 


As I mentioned in the starting line post, I will no longer be offering the Better World Books option, as they now only offer free shipping on orders of $15 and up. Going forward, the second prize from me will be a $5 Amazon egift card. 

Giveaway Details
This is a readathon participant only giveaway. To be eligible, you must have signed up, participated and added a link to the official readathon wrap-up post at the end of the readathon (I will give everyone until Wednesday, September 7th at 11:59 pm EDT to complete their wrap-ups). We no longer use a linky for wrap-ups. The Google form link on our wrap-up post is where you will enter your info, your wrap-up link, and answer yes/no on whether you want to win a prize or not. I will choose the winner of the above prize by random selection using Winner will be chosen after the wrap-up post deadline (see above).

Enjoy the rest of the readathon!


Stay tuned this week for news about our frightening fall events! My favorite time of year...all things scary!! πŸ‘ΏπŸ‘»πŸŽƒπŸ’€

High Summer Readathon starting line!

It's the height of summer, and the hottest time of year, in my opinion. Hope we can spend some time inside where it's cool and get our read on! Are you ready?

If you have any questions about how things work, check out the guidelines in the sidebar menu or the sign up post, or you can always leave me a comment (or send me a message via the contact form). 

In addition to the charity prize discussed below, I also offer a small prize at the end of the readathon. However, I've had to make a small change. Unfortunately, Better World Books has changed their free shipping policy and will only ship free with orders of a $15 minimum. So I will no longer be offering that prize, but I will now offer an Amazon egift of $5 to the giveway winner. I apologize for the change.
I did not receive any prize donations so the Amazon prize will be the only other prize for the readathon.

I will post a mid-event check in post at the halfway point. Our hashtag for the readathon across social media is #HSreadathon. Check out our Facebook group, Goodreads group and our Instagram...and our Facebook page. If you haven't already, stop by and give us a like. Thanks! (You can also access all our socials via the links in the sidebar menu.) We also have a Discord. If you would like to stop by and chat anytime during the readathon, here’s the invite link:

Win a $15 donation to a social justice charity of your choice!

I will make a $15 donation to the winner's choice of a social justice organization, such as the ACLU, Boys and Girls Club, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Amnesty International, It Gets Better, The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, Ukraine Relief, or another social justice organization of your choice (food banks, homeless shelters, animal rights/rescue/shelters would also apply), perhaps your local chapter or a local organization. This giveaway is open internationally. Note: I will not donate to any organization that does not believe all are equal, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation.

Charity giveaway (Google form):

(I will draw the winner at the end of the first week)

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 @ True Book Addict (goals or reading goals).
