New Header Image (2)

Here is my March ReadAThon guide! I am going to start splitting my Guides up into 1-2 day ReadAThons, week long ReadAThons, 2-3 week long ReadAThons and then Monthly ReadAThons. That will make it easier for those trying to look for a specifc type of ReadAThon

New Blog Title (3)

Four Seasons 24 Hour ReadAThon

This is a 24 hour readathon focusing on each season of the year. This one will happen 4 times a year, one during each season.

*Just to clarify, all of these 24 hour ReadAThons (excluding Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon), happens from midnight on the date, till 11:59pm on the date in YOUR time zone.*


Spring: Friday 23rd March 2018
Summer: Saturday 30th June 2018
Autumn: Thursday 27th September 2018

For each ReadAThon you are encouraged to read books that relate to the certain season. You can do that in many ways including:
Read a book set in that season
Read a book about an event that takes place in that season
Read a book with the season name in the title
Read a book that depicts the season on the cover
Read a book with a character named after the season

ReadAThon by Zoe

This is Round 5 of ReadAThon by Zoe and this is a 24 Hour ReadAThon held by ReadbyZoe on YouTube. The only rule is to read SOMETHING during the 24 hours, you don’t have to attempt to stay up for the full 24 hours if you don’t wish, but just read something, join in and have fun. There is no theme for this round, so just read whatever you want to for this round. However, Zoe is choosing to attempt to catch on series she has already started and she has invited people to join her if they wish.

*Just to clarify, all of these 24 hour ReadAThons (excluding Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon), happens from midnight on the date, till 11:59pm on the date in YOUR time zone.*

You can find Zoe’s announcement HERE on her channel

This ReadAThon occurs every month and each month there is a different focus on what to read.

So this ReadAThon has 2 parts, first, there is the theme. So the idea is to try and read books related to that theme and then there are the challenges, they are an extra challenge and not necessary but add some extra fun.
