|Wait, is anyone even still here?|
Well for those of you who are, IT IS TIME! Break out your comfy pajamas, kids, because it's time for a
Yes indeed. As announced last week on Twitter, this Saturday, November 22, will be what is by my count our FOURTH miniature readathon. In January, we will have been doing these for two years.
Look on our dedication to tiny snacks, talking about books on social media, small things in books, generally dancing around the idea of reading in any actual capacity, AND TREMBLE you 24-hour readathons with your prizes and your cheerleaders. We need none of you, for that is Too Much Effort.
We haven't done one of these for awhile because the one we planned for June went down in a fiery ball of OITNB Season 2 Release Weekend flames (see above re. too much effort...). But as far as I am aware, this weekend there are no major media events and in most of the northern hemisphere things seem to be getting rather chilly outside, so it's the perfect time to curl up with your book on your lap and your phone in your hand and tweet (#minithon) about how much you're really going to start reading any moment now.
Accepted Minithon Guidelines are as follows:
1) Mini-everything! Mini snacks, mini naps, mini discussions (aka tweets), and of course, some justification of why your reading material falls into the category of "miniature," the sillier the better.
2) Just 8 hours, beginning to end. We will begin at 8am Pacific time (that's 4pm UK, Laura!). And when we end at 4pm PT, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief at a job well done.
3) Let's keep it to only 2 posts this time around - one introductory and one to close out the 'thon - so as to leave us plenty of time for... reading. Alice has ironically proven herself the most motivated of us all and gotten a head start!
See you at 8am on Saturday, lovers!
