Good morning, beautiful readers! If you’re following the official timeclock, it’s 6AM and we here at readathon HQ are in varying stages of sleep and awake, stumbling to the coffee pot and extricating ourselves from snoring dog piles.
Pro Tip to get things going: drink something hot (tea, coffee, you do you), pace yourself, and pick something quick and engrossing to kick off your reading. It’s important to start with a quick read that will make you feel accomplished out of the gate! Trust us.
While we have you, though, it’s TIME FOR OUR FIRST CHALLENGE. We’re coming at you with all new challenges this year, and we couldn’t be more excited! First up: time for some nostalgia.
What’s the oldest children’s book you have, or a book you’ve held onto since your childhood? Share it with us!
Every reader I’ve met has strong childhood memories of devouring every book they could get their hands on, but there are some that stick out among the sea of books. I’ve got a battered copy of The Phantom Tollbooth and The Westing Game on my shelf that I’ll never be able to part with.
Drop your email address and answer into the form at the bottom of this post to enter; you have until Hour 12 to submit your entry! Don’t forget to check the prize page after the challenge closes to see if you won! (ALSO you can still enter the Intro Survey challenge from Hour Zero and check Hour 3 to see if you won a prize.)
