High Summer Read-a-Thon - Mid-Event Check-in #HSreadathon


Are we really at midweek already!? I don't even have to say, "I hope you're getting lots of reading in." I've been lurking in the Facebook group and I'm seeing tons of reading going on. You guys rock! Which makes me feel all the worse that I have not been more participative (I had a big client project earlier in the week, etc.) with interacting, nor reading...and I have not had a chance to visit any of your posts or videos. I'm plannng on stopping by. I'll start working through the list as soon as I finish this post. 😀

I'm thinking about asking for cheerleader volunteers next time (especially since the FrightFall Readathon (October) is a month long), so be thinking if you might like to volunteer or not. It would be a huge help to me. I don't really like to ask for help, but sometimes a person just has to admit they need it.

Just a few reminders...

Don't forget that Rhonda Hopkins has two free books available on Smashwords through the end of July. Her Christmas short story, The Gift and her zombie horror story, Survival. Click here to visit Rhonda's website for the details on how to grab your free eBook(s).


The Christmas in July 48 Hour Readathon starts this Friday at 12:00am central time. If you're not sure what that would be in your time zone, I've placed a link to a handy timezone converter in the menu up top. As stated, the 48 hour readathon will run until the end of High Summer at 11:59pm central time on Sunday (July 30). Remember, you do not have to participate if you're not IN to Christmas, but if you are, this is for you. Also, you can even choose to read Christmas books during the entire High Summer Readathon. I know a few of you already are. 🎅


Stop by my Christmas blog, Christmas Spirit. I'm having a Christmas in July event during which I'm sharing various Christmas-y things. I'm putting together a list of Christmas book releases for the coming season. It should be posted over there in a day or two. 🎄

Don't forget to check out the prize page. We have some great prizes donated by some fantasticly generous authors. There's a Google form to be filled out if you want to enter, and be sure to read over the giveaway details so you know how it works. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. 

Share with us in the comments how you're doing, leave a link in the comments, or continue updating on your chosen social media (#HSreadathon) and/or in our Facebook group.

Read on, Readathon Warriors!

  2. I read 8 books for 24in48 which means I have read 10 books and 3083 pages so far. That was a lot more than expected. Hopefully I'll read another 4 books and of these 2 will be Christmas books.

  3. I've finished reading two books that I started before this readathon began, which was about 100 pages total for both books. Plus I started and finished an audiobook last week. I'm currently reading two books that I began last week... One of which I am 58% into and the other I'm 49% into.... I hope to have both finished soon and start and finish a 6th book before the High Summer Read-a-Thon is over with.

  7. What am I thinking? I was thinking the Readathon was over last Sunday! No, it's still going on. That makes me feel better. I wrote a blogpost titled #HSReadathon Wrap-up post. Of course, that should be changed to Mid-Readathon Wrap-up. Two books down. http://bookendcrossing.blogspot.com/2017/07/hsreadathon-wrap-up-post.html

  11. Man...time flew by! I thought that I was going to get more reading done. I finished two books, an audio and a physical book. I am currently reading two books right now but I am going very slow. But hey, I am reading! This is a lot more than what I did last month. :)
