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.

Opening Survey!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

Mid-Event Survey!

  • What are you reading right now?
  • How many books have you read so far?
  • What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the readathon?
  • Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
  • What surprises you most about the readathon, so far?

Closing Survey!

  1. How would you assess your reading overall?
  2. Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
  3. What was your favorite snack?
  4. Wanna volunteer for our next event? Stay tuned for the recap post!

  1. Great post Cathy, I’d like to sleep but it’s really hot here. I hope to get at least some more chapters finished. I have some books in English and some in Spanish (just English for this Readathon) and they are audiobooks and ebooks. I use my iPad’s screen reader to read ebooks out.

  2. Opening Survey!

    1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
    The Woodlands, TX
    Home tonight and at our local Starbucks tomorrow. It’s a rare event for us to not be there on a Saturday and if we don’t show up they might send a search party out!

    2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
    Binti: Home
    I read the first in the trilogy last month and was surprised how much I liked it.

    3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
    Hmmm, we didn’t really plan snacks this time. Will probably pick somethig up from Target pickup tomorrow. Oh, or maybe we’ll get cookies from Crumble! That’s a new fav. (We ordered Crumbl)

    4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
    It’s disgustingly hot in Texas right now so it’s the perfect time to stay inside and read.
    I have 6 books I need to read/start reading before the end of the month.
    I real all over the place, totally different genres and that makes me happy.

    5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
    It’s rare for me to not plan snack food for a RAT. I’m blaming the heat!
