March 23, 2012 is fast approaching. Everyone be it from the reading or non-reading community have already marked their calendars in eager anticipation for the theater-release of The Hunger Games, the first in the much-celebrated book trilogy of Suzanne Collins. I for one had never been this excited in a book-turned-into-movie adaptation since the Harry Potter phenomena. I have a countdown on my phone, in my bedroom and dormitory wall, and on my desktop. If I could post it up on my bathroom wall, I would.
That's why we are happy to announce this event to help us kill time before the wait kills us (That's totally lame, I know) Me and Sana from Breathing Books will be hosting The Hunger Games Read-A-Thon, a month-long read-a-thon that will start from February 23, 2012 until the eve of March 23, 2012. We are still ironing out the schedule but as of now, it looks like this:
Everyone can sign-up as of today, Feb 1 up to March 19. If you have missed one Chapter post you can always link it up on the succeeding Chapter post. As you can also see, there is a Highlight Post every Sunday. This is where we will choose the best post and we'll feature it that day so that everyone who joined this Read-A-Thon will get to read it!
Anyone willing to contribute for prizes, giveaways and swags will be welcome with open arms and if this event goes as successfully as we hope it to, then we'll surely come back again for Catching Fire with better and bigger prizes. ;)
Bloggers and non-bloggers are welcome to join. Non-bloggers you can use Goodreads or any other posting platforms just make sure that you can link-it up so we can all read it. To sign-up, just do an introductory post with the details and the button for this event and link-it up below. Feel free to choose from the 2 buttons (codes can be found on the side-bar) and put it on your own side-bar or wherever you want. Help us spread the word by using the #THGReadAThon hashtag on Twitter! :)
Not only will this event serve as a refresher before the movie comes out but it will be fun discussing THG with other hardcore monkey mutts--er I mean hardcore THG fanatics.
So join us because the world will be watching and so will we.
Seeing as this is our first event to host, questions/recommendations/suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
