Readathon News: August Readathons

Disclaimer: These Readathons are not owned or run by me. I find them by searching the month and year on Google. My main source has been Little Book Owl.

There are four month long readathons going on for the month of August.

  1. ARC August. From what I gather, this is the sixth annual event. It looks like you just read as many Advanced reader Copies as you can during the month. It doesn’t seem to matter if they are from this year or haven’t been released yet. As long as they are ARC copies.
  2. DraconAthon: They have a video on Youtube that explains everything about the readathon. It looks like it includes the prompts to get through with the readathon. You can view that by clicking here.
  3. High Summer Readathon: This is sponsored by Seasons of Reading. They have a sign up post on their blog for everybody that wants to participate to sign up. It doesn’t look like there are any prompts. Just read to your heart’s content. This is one of my favorite readathons because of how low key they are.
  4. Trope-ical Readathon: This is Round 5 of the readathon. You can find all of the information by clicking here. If you’re worried about being thrown into the middle of it because it’s the 5th round, don’t. This will be my first round as well. It does look really fun!

The first week-long readathon in August will be the Buzzword Readathon. I haven’t really been active in this readathon. It’s not really my thing, but I won’t push my bias on other people. Some people may enjoy this particular readathon and want to know about it. This month’s buzz word is time of day.

I understand that August doesn’t really start until Sunday. I post these Monday and by the time I post, they will have all been going for a full day. Posting early gives us time to prepare properly. Especially those of us who will be travelling in the beginning. Besides, there haven’t really been in readathons for the last half of July.
