2014 Beat the Heat Readathon

 

Challenge hosted by Phantasmic Reads and Novel Heartbeat.

 

Rules

  • The readathon runs from August 11th at 12:01 AM to August 31st at 11:59 PM local time.
  • There will be five mini challenges – a cover guessing challenge, a book blending challenge, an unscramble challenge, and a book guessing challenge, and a match game challenge. They will start on different dates and the challenges will only be open for a week, so be sure to check the challenge schedule (right below this section).
  • Feel free to tweet about it with us and start a discussion! Use hashtag #BtHReadathon when tweeting.
  • There will be a grand prize drawing that will go live on August 31st and stay open until September 7th. This should allow you enough time to do a wrap up post if you choose to.
  • Remember, to participate in the grand prize giveaway, you MUST be signed up for the readathon. Readathon signups will stay open until August 24th. Sign up HERE or HERE.
  • Some sort of progress post will be required for the grand prize giveaway. You can add your progress to your sign-up post if you made one, or make a new post. (You’re welcome to use the format in this post!)
  • All challenges are optional, but there will be bonus entries in the final giveaway for participating in mini-challenges. Feel free to participate in as many (or as few) as you’d like. The main goal of Beat the Heat is to READ and enjoy yourself!

Sobre Célia

Tenho 36 anos e adoro ler desde que me conheço. O blogue Estante de Livros foi criado em Julho de 2007, e nasceu da minha vontade de partilhar as opiniões sobre o que ia lendo. Gosto de ler muitos géneros diferentes. Alguns dos favoritos são fantasia, romances históricos, policiais/thrillers e não-ficção.
