Book Report Challenge, Part 2

Chart the structure of the book you are reading. Who are the important characters? What is the setting(time, place)? What is the basic plot? What problem(s) is central to the plot, and how is it resolved? Do the important characters get what they want/need?

There are some fun printable pages on Pinterest (and thus all over the Internet) for this sort of basic book report. Here’s one that might be helpful for this challenge, though if you browse Pinterest or some of the sites these graphics are posted on, you may find others you like better. Or, make your own version. Many of these printables are also designed to be colored, so pull out your crayons or markers and have fun decorating your book report.

This nifty printable comes from a site called Classroom Doodles, which has a lot of great book report graphics.

Book Reports Challenge, Part 1- 2022 Reverse Readathon

When was the last time you had to write a book report? For this readathon we are heading back to grade school and completing some bookish activities to show off what we have been reading. There will be 6 parts to this challenge, spaced out every 4 hours throughout the official readathon. If you are starting at a different time or extending your readathon to 2 days (or any other modifications you’ve made to personalize your readathon) you can still do this challenge. Share your completed activities on whichever social media site you are using to post your readathon stuff.

If you are reading multiple books for this event, this first activity will be for the first book you read to kick off the readathon. If you are only reading one book, you may do all 6 activities on your one book. Your assignment for this first book: Draw a picture to show what your book is about.

Reverse Readathon

Reverse Readathon! July 2022

Well hello there! Welcome to the July 2022 Reverse Readathon! What’s a RR you ask? Well it’s a Readathon that starts at 8pm Eastern time on Friday, July 22 and runs to 8pm Eastern time on Saturday, July 23. It gives our illustrious international participants a decent starting time for once–well, mostly.

Because the Readathon is quite an undertaking, we’re keeping it free and easy here on ye olde blog. This post will be available throughout the event for you to knock out your opening, mid-, and ending surveys.

Most of the action will be happening on our individual channels: Goodreads Group, Facebook Group, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, and more. Check out the #readathon hashtag on your favorite social channel.
