The Retellings Challenge Read-a-Thon Begins!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today is the first day of the Retellings Challenge Read-a-Thon! Grab your closest retelling and settle in for a week of fairy tales, myths, and historical characters! While the retellings you choose to read this week are totally up to you, it's recommended that you choose books that are already on your shelves, e-readers, or in your audiobook libraries since access to books is fairly limited at the moment. In case you've forgotten, here are the details:

  • This read-a-thon will take place from Wednesday, May 13th at 12am (your time zone) through May 20th at 11:59pm.
  • The goal of this read-a-thon is to read as many retellings as you can during the weeklong challenge.
  • You can gain points for the giveaway by signing up, reading books, and participating in challenges! 
  • You're encouraged to create a discussion topic for the books you're reading in the Goodreads group so discussion can take place!
  • Challenges will be posted throughout the read-a-thon. Each challenge will gain you points.
  • The final giveaway will be for any kindle ebook or physical book retelling of your choice up to $10.

  • The first way to get a point is to sign up, which you can do by filling out this form if you haven't already! 
  • Next, you can gain points for every book you complete! For fairness, longer books get you more points. Snag your points by filling out this form every time you complete a book! 
  • Challenges will be posted here and in the Goodreads group throughout the challenge to gain additional points! 

Good luck and happy reading!
