2023 High Summer Readathon - Sign up!

Time for another readathon! One last hurrah of summer reading before school starts again (for kids who do not start in August that is) and wonderful fall arrives.

We start at 12:00 am eastern time on August 1 and end at 11:59 pm eastern time August 31. (There is a handy link to a time zone converter in the sidebar menu.) Guidelines for the readathon can be found HERE or you can access in the sidebar menu. Any information you need about the readathon can be found there. Please do be sure to check the guidelines to make sure you're following along correctly. There are specific rules regarding sign up and wrap up, especially in regards to the giveaway.

Our social media hashtag is #HSreadathon and don't forget we have our outstanding Facebook group and our Facebook Page, and our Goodreads group and Instagram. We are also on Discord. Introduce yourself in the #general channel, and look for the readathon specific channel for the current readathon. Here is the invite link if you haven't already joined: 
(There are also access tabs in the sidebar menu.)

Some orders of business...

Since Goodreads stopped the events feature, it has become a bit more difficult to spread the word, and to obtain prize donations. I would appreciate help in spreading the word. Also, if you know anyone (authors, etc.) who would like to donate a prize, have them message me via the contact form in the sidebar menu. Thank you!

Every readathon, I offer a charity donation prize (to a social justice charity) 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.

Grab the button and spread the word! There’s a grab code in the sidebar or download the image at the top of this post.

Any questions at all? Leave me a comment, or send me a message via the contact me link in the sidebar menu.

  1. Looking forward to at least a couple of more books!

  2. Lol. Summer is a great time for reading. I decided to join you all for a pre Frightfall readathon! A great way to say so long to summer.

  3. let's see how the summer ends

  4. Trying to get out of a reading slump. Hoping this will kick me out of it. 😁 I was just gifted a box of books and will grab randomly from it for my next few reads.

  5. I'm in! I'm going to try to get 10 books read, and also try to read something in a genre I don't usually read! Anyone got any suggestions? (ex-romance)

  6. I’m in! My first book is A Very Typical Family by Sierra Godfrey.
