I AM HOSTING A HARRY POTTER RE-READ-A-THON FOR 2015!!
So, if you’ve been watching my YouTube channel, you’ll probably know that I finished reading the Harry Potter Series early in the year. It has quickly became my favorite series of all time! Since then I’ve read all the books a second time!
They’ve become very special books for me. And I have them all. They are not the kind of books that you read once and if you re-read them, you don’t like them as much as the first time. No way! I’ve read all 7 books in the series twice. When I re-read them, I like them the same as first time, if not more. They are not the most important books in my life, but they’re pretty close to the top =) I also happen to live near Universal Studios in Florida — the home of Hogwarts =)
I started a re-read a thon last month, but I didn’t find it very interactive or enjoyable as I’d expected. So, I decided to host my own.
It will start today, March 10th, 2015, but you can join at any time! I’m not going to make a video about the Re-Read-A-thon, it’s something that I’m hosting on my blog, Instagram, and Twitter.
Even with all the other things going on in my life, I can definitely squeeze in a little more Harry Potter. =)
- It will be held every month until the end of the year.
- The challenge is to read all 7 books, which is 4100 pages, in ONE MONTH — or 30 days.
- If you want to challenge yourself further, the task is to read the 7 books of the series in 2 weeks. If you read 1 page per minute, that’ll take you 5 hours a day of reading time.
- Or you can challenge yourself to read the series in 3 weeks, which means you’d be reading close to 3 and a quarter hours a day if you read at the same speed.
If you’ve never read the series before, YOU ARE ALSO FREE TO JOIN — as you can definitely choose to challenge yourself and read the series in 30 days. We will cheer you on! If you don’t complete it in 30 days, it’s not the end of the world — nor is it the end of the books! If you own them, or have a library nearby, you can always check them out and finish them the following month.
ALSO, I will be hosting sprints mostly every night on my Twitter account @EmancipatedMimi, where you can sprint through the pages with us, and are usually interactive and lots of cheering goes on!!
In addition I’ve created a Facebook group where you can meet other marathon-ers and talk about the books.
The Re-Read-A-Thon starts today March 10th! I’m currently on book 3 – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
You can follow the Re-Read-A-Thon on Twitter with the hashtag #HPReReadAThon
If you have a set of trivia, an item from Hogsmeade, or fan art, I would LOVE to see it =) You can email me at MariamMisty@gmail.com or leave me a comment below! Also let me know if you will be participating! Have a great evening, or morning, if it’s daytime where you are and I’ll catch ya all later =)
