Winter's Respite 2024 - The 24-Hour Readathon starts now!

Here we go! I'll be posting updates and checking in over on our Discord server. Just look for the "Winter's Respite" channel in the left menu. Here's the invite link, if you haven't already joined:

I'll also stop by Instagram and our Goodreads and Facebook groups to check in with those who don't join us on Discord. 

This is a first for Seasons of Reading. I'm excited! Happy Reading!

Winter's Respite 24- Hour Readathon - The date is set!

The votes are in! By a slim margin, Saturday, February 17, 2024 is the date for our 24-Hour readathon. We will start at 10:00 am eastern time. Find out what time that is in your time zone by using the time zone converter in the sidebar menu (just click the link). 

I was thinking our Discord would be a good place to post updates so if you haven't joined, just visit this invite link:
If you would rather not join us on Discord, feel free to post updates on Instagram, and/or in our Facebook group or Goodreads group.

Any questions? Leave a comment or contact me via the link in the menu. 

I'm excited! Our first 24-hour readathon within a readathon!

Winter's Respite 2024 - Starting line

Time to begin!

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). 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).

I'm offering the charity donation prize (see below) and I will be giving away another prize. I will post the second prize I'm offering on the mid-event check-in page. 

I will post a mid-event check in post at the halfway point. Our hashtag for the readathon across social media is #WintersRespite. Stop by our Facebook group, Goodreads group and check out our Instagram. We also have a Seasons of Reading 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 have a Discord too. 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 Ukraine relief, ACLU, Boys and Girls Club, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Amnesty International, It Gets Better, The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, 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 award both prizes after the end of the readathon.

New addition starting this year. We will have one 24-hour readathon during the month long readathon. This will work much like Dewey's 24-hour Readathon (if you're familiar). It will be on a Saturday, but will start at 10:00 am eastern time instead of 8:00 am (you start according to your time zone...there's a time zone converter link in the blog menu) and will go for a full 24 hour period. You can participate as much or as little as you like. Leave your vote for which Saturday in the comments below. I'm not including this coming Saturday since it's only a couple of days away.
