3rd Annual Winter 24 Hour Read-a-thon 2016

Hey fellow readers of the world:)
In January we will kick off our 3rd Annual Winter 24 Hour Read-A-Thon!!!! Last year we had so many people participate and I would love to have even more participate this year. It would be great to have everyone participate but if you can't there is always next year:) Also feel free to invite other people to join our book club so they can participate in it as well!

What is it?
It will start at midnight and it will end at midnight on the next day. The goal is to read as many books as you can in 24 hours. You may take breaks to rest your eyes, eat, drink, take a shower or go to the bathroom.
There will also be various challenges you can participate in and many games to play too! 
I hope you will grab some Hot Cocoa or Coffee and a blanket and cozy up on the couch with us for the Winter 24 Hour Read-A-Thon for 2016!!!!!

Start Date: Saturday, January 16th at midnight
End Date: Sunday, January 17th at midnight

If you are not a part of the book club we would still love for you to participate. Just comment down below your name and where you will be doing updates (YouTube,Twitter, Goodreads, Tumblr, a blog, instagram, facebook, etc.)  Also we would love for you to join our book club:)

Happy Trails,


 During the Read-A-Thon we will be having some challenges that will be open the whole Read-A-Thon.

Just leave a comment down below with a link to where you posted it:) The winners of the challenges during hours 5,8,14,17,20,and 23 will get a shout out on my upcoming blog/YouTube post. I will be judging the entries on Monday January 19th.

Beginning Questionnaire: 
1. What books are in your TBR pile for the Read-A-Thon?
2. What are you eating or drinking during the Read-A-Thon?
3. How are you going to keep yourself awake during this challenge?
4. What book are you looking forward to reading the most?
5. How many books do you want to read?
6. Where in your house will you get comfortable to curl up and read?
7. Have you participated in a Read-A-Thon before?
8.What will you be wearing so you are comfy and cozy to read?
9. What are you looking forward to most about the Read-A-Thon?
10. Where will you be updating what you read (twitter, goodreads, youtube or blog)?

Reading Sprints:
What are they?
They are when you read as much as you can in 30 minutes and when we all are reading together. 
I will be hosting reading sprints every other hour on our new Twitter page @RIBTLbookclub!!! 
Feel free to follow our twitter so you can know when they are and participate in them. 
I realize because of all of the different time zones that not everyone will start and end at the same time, so I will do enough sprints where everyone can at least participate in a few of them. 


Our new twitter @RIBTLbookclub  is now up and running! Follow us so you can be updated and stay connected during the Read-A-Thon.
