Are you or members of your family looking for something to do over thanksgiving break?
If so you many want to check out Miriam of Miriam Mimi's Bookish Blog's first ever read-a-thon. It is a family friendly read-a- thon for ALL ages and will be held November 24-November 30. All you need is a book and a phone!
There will be daily book recommendations, page count challenges, photo challenges, twitter sprints, reader stories, games and more.
You or your family members can sign up here to be added to the official participation list! Http://MNMmariam.wordpress.com/readathon
As a co-host of the read-a-thon I have assisted Miriam by developing the challenge for the daily photo. You know how teens love their phones and iPads. If you have Instagram, WordPress, Twitter, or Facebook on your phone you and your child can take bookish photos as part of the read-a-thon.
Here is the challenge for the bookish daily photo:
Monday: post a photo of your favorite book cover
Tuesday: post a photo of your favorite science fiction of fantasy book
Wednesday: post a photo of your favorite mystery book
Thursday: post a photo of your favorite book about family
Friday: post a photo of your favorite classic book
Saturday: post a photo of your favorite book
Sunday: post a photo of a book you read this week or are reading now

Have fun, enjoy your break and have a great week of reading.
