Welcome to our first ever Travel the World in Books Readathon! Lost in Books, Savvy Working Gal and I have a fantastic couple of weeks in store for you to help you and your kids explore different countries around our world through books. So let me tell you what this Readathon is all about.
Explore countries other than the one you live in. Read as much as you can of books set in a different country or by an author from a different country. Read for your own pleasure or learning, read with your kids or both. Travel the world from the comfort of your own home and learn about different cultures. Expand your horizons and show publishers that #WeNeedDiverseBooks to promote cultural understanding and diversity in our reading. Support diverse authors and books.
September 1-14, 2014. There is no requirement for how much to read, read as little or as much as you want during the two weeks. Just read!
The schedule includes our Twitter and Facebook chats and fun mini-challenges. The schedule was updated for every great author interviews and creative guest posts we had for you so be sure to check it out!
