It’s time for the June ReadAThon Guide!! This is all the ReadAThons I could find for June, if you know of any others please let me know. I divide each ReadAThon guide up into time frames.
Mini Persephone ReadAThon
This is a 3 day ReadAThon that is about reading Persephone Books. Don’t know what a Persephone book is, don’t worry neither did I. Here is info copy and pasted from the announcement post.
*What are Persephone Books you may ask? Persephone Books are a London based independent publisher and bookseller, who specialize in neglected books by (mostly) women writers from (mainly) the mid-twentieth century.
The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 1st till 11:59 pm on the 3rd of June.
You can find a list of Persephone books HERE! Some of these books are also published by other publishers, so you don’t have to only read the Persephone version. The host of the ReadAThon has also provided a post that consists of a list of Persephone books that are available on eBook as well as some links to free downloads. You can find that HERE! Also HERE is a link to Persephone books if you want more info on the publishing company.
You can find extra info HERE. This rounds announcement & Sign Up HERE!
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.
HERE is a link to their Goodreads page & HERE is the link to their Twitter.

So all we have for this one atm is the dates. There isn’t any more info on the ReadAThon Twitter. However, if this ReadAthon is running the same as it has in the past, this ReadAthon has reading challenges that are set in a bingo card.
The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 17th till 11:59 pm on the 23rd of June.
Make sure you follow the ReadAThon Twitter HERE, if you want to keep up with more info!
This ReadAThon is a week long and the purpose of this ReadAThon is to help you complete your own goals! So for example, if your yearly goal is to read classics, you will read classics during this ReadAThon. Or if your yearly goal is a specific list of books, you read those books. It’s pretty self-explanatory.
The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 24th till 11:59 pm on the 30th of June.

The Quarterly OopsAThon
This ReadAThon is actually really unique. The idea of this ReadAThon is to read books that you previously had on TBRs for other ReadAthons but you didn’t get to. That basically explains it all! Just look at previous ReadAThon TBRs and if you still haven’t read any of the books on that TBR then read it!
The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 24th till 11:59 pm on the 30th of June. This is the same week as #FinishAThon.
You can find the announcement post HERE!
Series Crackdown 4.0
This one actually crosses over from May into June. Series Crackdown doesn’t have any reading challenges but the goal is to try and finish those series that you have started but still haven’t finished (or at least catch up on series that aren’t fully released).
The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 25th of May till 11:59 pm on the 3rd of June.
