2nd Annual Beat the Heat Readathon Sign Ups

Posted by Jessi (Geo) on July 21, 2014 | 39 Comments

We had a GREAT turnout last year, so Reanna and I thought we would bring it back again this year! It’s so great to be back blogging and I’m pretty excited to be celebrating with a readathon :D

There is one major change from last year: we’d love to have other bloggers host mini-challenges. We’d like at least 3 if possible. Please email Reanna (phantasmicreads@gmail.com) if you’re interested in helping out!



  • The Beat the Heat Readathon runs from August 11th to September 1st. What does this readathon entail, you ask? Well, read as much or as little as you want – the main point is to READ! You set your own goal, and for three weeks you read as many books as you can/want to reach your goal!
  • There will be mini-challenges throughout the Readathon for participants, along with a grand prize giveaway at the end!
  • Sign up here at Novel Heartbeat or over at Phantasmic Reads. You may join whenever you like, but to be eligible for our grand prize giveaway, you must sign up by August 24th.
  • To join, all you have to do is make a sign-up post – even if it’s just a “Let’s do this!” thing – and add your post URL to the linky below! You can put your goals and progress (will be required for the final giveaway) in your sign-up post, or you can make it separate. Totally up to you! (You are welcome to use the template we provide as well.)
  • In order to enter for the grand prize, you must have a post to keep track of your progress so we can see that you participated.

  1. I just told Reanna, but I have to tell you too… I got goosebumps when I saw y’alls post because this was the VERY FIRST read-a-thon I ever participated in :) (you were Aunti Spinelli then!) I was so excited with my new blog and I had so much fun that I have been a read-a-thon, challenge junkie ever since :) I’ll share this on my Sunday Post and officially sign-up once I get my post up. I’m looking for a good day on my calendar to add it!

  2. I’m excited for this! I wanted to do a reading challenge this summer and haven’t found one! Where’d they all go??! But count me in!

  3. […] I'm talking about 2nd Annual Beat the Heat Readathon!! All the info and sign-up links are here! I'm definitely participating even though this is partly at the same time as Bout of Books […]

  4. […] The Beat the Heat Readathon starts today! And it lasts until the end of August, so even though I’ve only read one book so far in August, this will give me a chance to get caught up again. I would really really love to finish 11 books, but we’ll see how that goes. This readathon overlaps with the Bout of Books Readathon next week, so I’m going to try to read a ton that week. I’m also looking forward to participating in the challenges for the next few weeks. I will update this post with my reading progress as much as I can but I can’t promise daily updates for three weeks, and will post my challenges here as well. There is still time to sign up if you want to join in on the readathon! You can do that here.  […]
