The read-a-thon will run from 10 a.m. on Thursday, August 11, to 10 p.m. on Saturday, August 13 (start and end time is according to your time zone). To sign up, simply write a participation post sometime between now and August 10. That is the last day to sign up. Here's a sample post; you can copy and paste it or write your own.
There's a spot to fill in your name somewhere, so be sure to look for that. :)
As an added bonus, if you join the read-a-thon (and post at least one end of day update), you will be entered to win $15 to Book Depository. One winner will get any YA book of their choice, as long as it's already released (as of August 20). And the more people you get to join the read-a-thon, the more entries you'll have. The giveaway is open wherever The Book Depository ships (find your country).
Once you've posted your participation post, fill out this form, and you're done.
If you're not a blogger and would like to join the read-a-thon, leave a comment on this post to say so, and fill out the form. In the 'participation post URL' field, put no blog. When the read-a-thon starts, I'll make a post where you can put your reading updates.
Big thanks in advance to anyone that signs up. I'll post a list below (or in a separate post) of all participating blogs as they come in.
*In case you're wondering, yes, I did get a lot of my read-a-thon ideas from Enna Isilee at Squeaky Books.
