Classics Retold Read-a-thon

September 13, 2013 – September 20, 2013

Read-a-thon is Hosted by Rachael @ Rachael Turns Pages

Classics Retold is Hosted by Alison @ The Cheap Reader, Alyssa @ Books Take You Places, Charlene @ Bookish Whimsy, Wendy @ Excellent Library, Brittany @ Book Addict's Guide. Alison @ The Cheap Reader came up with this idea after project Fairy Tale was such a huge hit. She tweaked the challenge a bit to include classic books and their adaptations.

With Alison's permission I will be hosting a read-a-thon for Classics Retold.

I have been looking for read-a-thons to participate in September and there is nothing. There is one at the way end of the month. I decided that I needed a read-a-thon to participate in so why not host another one on my blog.

This read-a-thon will take place from Friday September 13th through Friday September 20. That is 8 full days of reading.

I realize I will be in classes most of those days as will most other people be, but any amount of reading that gets done counts.

You are not required to read classics during this read-a-thon, but if you are participating in classics retold I encourage you to read a book for your project so you can get the review up during September.

The challenges are completely optional. If you can think of any more challenges that should be done during the read-a-thon please leave them in the comments below.
