Love for Books Readathon Sign Up


I haven't participated in a readathon since elementary school. I remember coloring a sneaker for every book that I read and there was some sort of competition for the class with the most colored sneakers and prizes. I will have to ask my mom about the details.

Anyways, I've never participated in a blog-based readathon and since I am a teacher on February vacation, I figure what better time to give it a try?!

Jessi at Novel Heartbeat and Amanda at Confessions of a Bookie Monster are hosting The Love For Books Readathon. Here are the rules from Novel Heartbeat:
  • The Love for Books Readathon runs from Monday, February 17th at 12:01 am through Sunday, February 23rd at 11:59 pm.
  • We will have at least one mini challenge sometime during the week for you to participate in!
  • There will be a giveaway at the end of the readathon for all participants.
  • Sign up at Novel Heartbeat or Confessions of a Bookie Monster. You may join whenever you like, but to be eligible for our grand prize giveaway, you must sign up by February 18th.
  • To join, all you have to do is make a sign-up post and add your post URL to the linky below! You can put your goals and progress (will be required for the final giveaway) in your sign-up post, or you can make it separate. Totally up to you!
  • In order to enter for the grand prize, you must have a post to keep track of your progress so we can see that you participated.
