End of 2014 Read-a-Thon Information

Friday 12 December 2014

I know, I know: I did a post about this not too long ago. But that's not the point. Now, there is more information to share with you so you can all start preparing for the It's the End of 2014 Read-a-Thon.

So, for twelve days starting on December 20th, myself, Sarah, Jayne, and Once will be hosting the read-a-thon on our blogs and on the official Twitter for it. As you can see from the calendar below (which - along with the banner - was made by Jayne) we will each be hosting three days. That means, if you're interested in taking part in the challenges, you need to make sure to visit whichever of us is hosting for that day, because I'm sure we'll all take part in the challenges ourselves. Or at least, I plan on trying to complete my own days' challenges.


There are just three challenges that will last for the entire twelve days, the rest will be specific to certain days, but we'll get onto that in a second. The big challenges are as follows:

1. Read a total of 2,000 pages
2. Re-read a 2014 favourite
3. Set your own challenge (e.g. read a book that starts with the same letter as your name)

The daily challenges will be judged and there will be winners. So be sure to let the day's host know you're participating by linking to your post in the comments! I personally will not include any hosts when I judge entries, as I feel like that's not fair (but I'll still definitely check them out, of course). The days each host has been assigned to correlates with the daily challenge, so keep your eyes open. My days will be 23rd, 27th, and 29th. 

December 20th - Your TBR for the read-a-thon
December 21st - Colour the Rainbow: find books on your shelves with covers/spines that make up a rainbow
December 22nd - Spell it Out: spell any winter/Christmas word with the books you have read this year
December 23rd - Psychic or Not: try to predict what will happen next in the book you are currently reading
December 24th - Movie Marathon: top five books that you think would make awesome films
December 25th - Winter Wonderland: create a winter scene with either natural materials or things inside that are associated with the season and display the book that you are currently reading
December 26th - Tell Me A Story: use book titles and author names to create a mini story
December 27th - Building Blocks: build a structure out of your books
December 28th - Scavenger Hunt: find items from the covers of your TBR for the read-a-thon or from the covers of the books that you have read so far
December 29th - Shake it up: re-enact or recreate your favourite book cover
December 30th - 2015 Most Anticipated: top ten most anticipated books of 2015
December 31st - 2014 Gems: top ten favourite books of 2014

Of course, the challenges are optional, so don't feel like you have to participate every single day if you don't want to or feel like you can't. It's all just a bit of fun at the end of the day.

More information can be found on Goodreads in the group or on Twitter, both of which will continue to be updated as things go. Good luck to everyone who plans on participating!
