Catch-up Read-A-Thon Signup

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Catch-Up Read-a-Thon, hosted by Keegan Shayne from Blabbing Books and Elanor Lawrence from Elanor Lawrence. This is our first Read-a-Thon, so we're super excited to be hosting it.

The Catch-Up Read-a-Thon will run from August 13 to September the 3rd, giving you plenty of time to 'catch up' on your reading and hopefully make a sizable dent in your TBR pile. This is also a great time to finish up any summer reads before school starts again.

To join the Read-a-Thon, please enter your name into the link below. Then follow both Elanor Lawrence and Blabbing Books so that you can receive updates reminding you of when the contest is coming up. It would be wonderful if you all could spread the word via twitter, facebook, your blog, Goodreads... anywhere you can think of. Of course, you want to spread the love of reading. And the more entries we get, the more prizes we'll add.

Because yes, there will be prizes! Each week everyone who participates by posting a progress report on their blog/twitter/tumblr will be entered to win a swag pack from our three sponsoring authors. These wonderful women are:

  1. Terra Lyn Childs (Forgive My Fins and Fins are Forever)
  2. Elana Johnson (Possession)
  3. Beth Revis (Across the Universe)

Also, we will both be running individual contests on our own blogs, so make sure to follow them both!

From Elanor:
1) Two Handmade Seaglass Pendants
2) One Query critique

From Keegan:
1) Three Custom Blog Layouts
2) Three Mini-interviews on the blog

The more you participate in the Read-a-Thon, the more prizes you'll be eligible for. For now, add your name to the linky below, follow bot
Blabbing Books and Elanor Lawrence, and (most importantly) start gathering a sizeable TBR pile. You'll need it in August!

If you are participating, please add your name in the link at the bottom of the post. The put this image in your side bar and link it back to this post to show your support. More information on progress posts, books and prizes will be given closer to the starting date. We hope to see you in August! :)



  1. I'd add myself but your linky code isn't working. xD

  2. Blogger won't let me link...but I'd love to be a part of it anyway!

  3. Whoops... Silly link. I'm not sure why it's not working. You guys can go over to Blabbing About Books and sign up there. It doesn't matter where you sign up; hopefully I can get my link working.
