Hello to all good people out there.
Today I state my intention to sign up and participate a readathon aptly named Sci-Fi Summer Readathon. This readathon runs the whole month of June and the star of the show is science fiction. This readathon is put on every year by a sweet young lady named Michelle Miller. She maintains a number of websites but the one we are focusing on today is www.seasonsreading.blogspot.com/.
I love this readathon because it highlights the type of books that I usually don't get around to reading or putting on my TBR. This is the genre that got me interested in reading in the first place. This and the mystery genre. However, this month I am looking forward to a month long reading event of nothing but science fiction.. and fantasy. Here is a small preamble for the readathon.
Sci-Fi Summer is a month long readathon! June 1st at 12:00 am EDT to June 30th 11:59 pm EDT. Since science fiction is a very specific genre, this will be strictly reading science fiction during the event. However, since fantasy is so closely related to the genre (often grouped together), if you feel more comfortable reading fantasy, that is also fine. You do not have to participate for the entire readathon. You can start at the beginning and end early, or start later toward the end of the event. Just keep in mind that the last day to sign up is the last Friday before the end of the readathon at 11:59 pm eastern time. And above all, this is a time of relaxed reading during which we can personally challenge ourselves and whittle away those ever looming TBR piles/shelves/libraries. So, no pressure...EVER! Enjoy!
If you have any inclination at all in joining, I'm telling you, that you should. It is a very laid back readathon and there are so many nice people to meet to share the same interests as yourslelf. There is still lots of time to join as the readathon does not start until June 1, 2022. You can sign up here:
This is where I will be posting my progress on the books I am reading, as well as announcing my reading selection. I will also be sending out twitter updates using the hashtag #scifijune. So without any more hesitation, lets get on with the show! My three picks are as follows:
