Guidelines for Read-a-thon

Yay!! It’s finally here…..the read-a-thon starts TOMORROW.  Here’s a few simple guidelines for tomorrow to get you started.

1) This is meant to be fun!!!! So get some books you’re dying to read and settle in for a great day of reading.

2) Since the read-a-thon is for U.S and International peeps it has been decided that everyone will start reading sometime Saturday when they’re ready.

3) Goal: see if you can read for 24 hours straight.

4) Trivia is going to start around noon PST on Saturday, so 4:00 p.m. for EST and around 8:00 p.m. for those in the UK.

5) Trivia questions will be a mix of books, books made into movies and TV shows based on books.

6) Trivia will be on Twitter and will be used through a # that will be set up in the morning.

7) We have lots of cool prizes set up. If you’re an international reader we have a few prizes that can be sent like Gift Cards for Amazon, since international shipping is crazy pricey.

8) I have set the talented Brielle Bookworm as the mediator on this. Please remember that she is a young book blogger and has done a fabulous job setting this up. Her internet is acting up but we plan to do everything on Twitter. :o)

Remember this is a fun way for a lot of us to read fabulous books from our TBR lists.

    I might participate. I like the concept of it. If I don’t participate I’m sure to do it some other day when I have more free time.
