Announcing The Mega Perpetual Challenge Read-a-Long!


I'm almost as excited as Tom Hiddleston!

In order to increase interaction and participation within four of the perpetual reading challenges I host, I've decided to host this MEGA read-a-long event. Although this event was designed around the four respective reading challenges, you do not have to sign up for any of them to join in on the read-a-longs (although I would welcome anyone to sign up).

The hub for the entire event will be here at The True Book Addict, but the individual read-a-longs will be hosted at their respective blogs (I will list those below) and The Fantasy Project read-a-long will be dually hosted at its blog and at its Goodreads group. As the hub for the event, I will create a page listing all the reading schedules and links to the blogs which can be accessed in the menu bar at the top of the blog.

Here is the awesome button I created for the event:

<div class="the-true-book-addict-button" style="width: 350px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.truebookaddict.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i519.photobucket.com/albums/u359/miller4plusmore/mega%20read-a-long%20challenge_zpsvzwjs1lf.jpg" alt="The True Book Addict" width="350" height="206" /> </a> </div>

So, here is the schedule of read-a-longs and their respective blog urls:

June 2015: A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray - hosted at Goodreads group and at http://101fantasychallenge.blogspot.com/

July/August 2015: The Covenant by James A. Michener - hosted at http://themichenerchallenge.blogspot.com

September 2015: The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice - hosted at https://annericeneverends.wordpress.com/

October 2015: Salem's Lot by Stephen King - hosted at http://skchallenge.blogspot.com/

Stay tuned. I will be posting the read-a-long schedules in the menu page up top in a few days.

I hope you will join me for one, or all, of the read-a-longs!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I will think about joining in on one, Michelle. As you know, I'm signed up for your Goodreads read-along but no one seems to post on Goodreads, they use twitter which I don't use anymore, so I feel that I have no one to talk to. If you can get more people to either comment here on your blog or on Goodreads, I will be open to reading along :) Please don't take this as a criticism of you-- no way! You are trying hard to keep everyone happy and I appreciate it.

  3. Hi Michelle! I was included in your Christmas exchange with my Daughter - Tasha. I think the person that sent a gift was Carol. I would like to tell her "Thank You!! for the gift. If you can, please let Carol know that I did enjoy my gift!!
