What are Read-a-thons, Anyway?
Read-a-thons are usually small events, generally with a set time-limit, where people read with a set goal in mind, usually in terms of page count or amount of books read. Read-a-thons often have fun prompts and themes!
Because I am in graduate school and work part-time, it is difficult for me to participate in read-a-thons. I am currently juggling about four large-scale projects in my classes, one of the projects is actually this blog!
But I wanted to spread the word about my friend’s second annual read-a-thon and show my support.
The talented artist, Cottonbook from Cottonbook Goods made the banner which is the features image for this read-a-thon!
Now, onto the prompts…!
These prompts are inspired by the mini series, Over the Garden Wall.
Jason Funderburker: Read a Book you have a high expectation for.
Candy Trail: Read a book that was recommended to you.
“I wanna steal:” Read a borrowed book.
The Unknown: Pick a book to read at random.
Rock Fact: Pick a book you will think will be educational.
The Beast: Read a book that intimidates you.
Potsfield: Read a book with orange on the cover or a book that gives you Halloween vibes.
Tavern: Read a book while drinking your favorite fall beverage.
“The Perfect Frog Name.” Read a book with a title that is pleasing to you.
