Once Upon a Readathon! Sign ups are now open!

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

It’s time for sign ups for the second annual Once Upon a Readathon!  This Readathon is hosted by Lori at Pure Imagination, Angela at Reading Angel and myself.  It runs from 12:01 am on July 11 to 11:59 on July 13th. 

What is a Readathon?
A Readathon is where you set a goal for yourself to read more books that is beyond your average number of books you read.  There is no minimum, it’s all up to you!  Push yourself to get some of those books read that have been sitting on your shelves for awhile!  You can read anything you like.  Any genre, any subject.

What you do:
To participate in the Once Upon a Readathon you fill out the form below, which is to enter you for the prizes, and enter into the linky so we can visit you! It’s the same form and linky on all our blogs, so only enter into them ONCE! Then grab the button and post it on your sidebar to spread the word and so you don’t forget.  Then, from 12:01 am on July 11th to 11:59 pm on July 13th you read, read, and read some more!  Make sure you do at least one update post (if you don’t have a blog you may do this on facebook and/or twitter) and participate in at least one challenge.

What you get:
Many participants will receive prizes.  We have swag packs as well as books for giveaway.  These will go to random participants and we will list the winners on our blogs when the Readathon is finished.   These prizes will be shipped from us, from authors, or from publishers. We have some for the international folks as well, so don’t let that hold you back!  You are only eligible if you do at least one update post and participate in at least one challenge. We will check!

Some of the stuff I have set up for giveaway (Lori and Angela have more!) is:
Lisa Shearin is sending one winner her complete Raine Benares series. Thank you Lisa!
Magic Lost, Trouble Found Armed & Magical (Raine Benares, Book 2) Con & Conjure (Raine Benares)
Lorraine Zago Rosenthal’s publicist, Jessica,  is sending one winner Other Words for Love.  Thank you Jessica!
Other Words for Love
More will be shared as we get it!
Angela, Lori and I also plan to provide international winners with prizes from each of us.

Sign-ups CLOSED

Thanks for subscribing!


  1. I don’t have a blog but I am interested in joiningg the read-a-thon. I already filled out the form and will be sharing on my fb. How do I grab the button and use it?

  2. I’m getting excited! I just requested a few books for my local library so they will come in on time! “Zombies Don’t Cry” is on my to-read list. I’m an adult but I seem to like a lot of the YA books!

  3. Kaye,
    I’m sorry, we’ve had it up and advertised like crazy for months. We thought closing at noon was fair. But I sent a message to the others to see if we should leave you on the form. Of course your welcome to join us anyway and just not be on the linky (or be entered for the prizes).
