While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals, middle-grade, and non-fiction.
I thought I would update the list of Readathons that I posted last year. Bout of Books #15 is already in the bag (it was 1/4/2016 - 1/10/2016), and as I posted earlier #24in48 is this weekend and still accepting participants. (I’m unfortunately writing a report for work instead of participating, but you can’t have everything).
In case you want to play along, here are the Readathons I am aware of. Please add a comment if you know of any others.
High-intensity short duration
Dewey’s 24-hr Readathon
April 23, 2016
October 2016 (usually the 3rd weekend)
Twenty Four in Forty Eight
January 16 – 17, 2016
Summer 2016 – date to be announced in late January
July 23-24, 2016
The organizer has just announced that she shifted to Winter and Summer so that #24in48 is better offset from #Deweys
48-hour Hour Book Challenge
Likely June 2016 – but the 2016 date has not yet been announced
Bout of Books
Bout of Books 16 - 5/9/2016 -- 5/15/2016
Bout of Books 17 - 8/22/2016 -- 8/28/2016
Bout of Books 18 - 1/2/2017 -- 1/8/2017
Wonderfully Wicked Read-A-Thon
May be defunct. The associated blog doesn’t appear to have been updated since mid-2015.
Typically overlaped with Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon.
http://www.littlebookowl.com/p/read-thon-calendar.html appears to be keeping a ReadAThon Calendar as well and included several other hosts that I wasn’t aware of such as
The A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon will always fall in the third week in January. This year January 18 – 24, 2016
The Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon will always fall in the third week of April.
The High Summer Read-a-Thon will always fall in the third week of July.
The FrightFall Read-a-Thon will always fall during the first week in October.
The A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon will always fall in the third week in January.
If you are participating in a Read-a-Thon, let me know and I'll stop by to cheer you on, even if I am not reading along
