Lost in Books, Savvy Working Gal and I are happy to announce our Travel the World in Books Readathon, coming September 1-14, 2014! The readathon is a chance to explore our world by reading books set in other countries or by authors from countries other than the one where you live. Learning about other cultures helps promote diversity, cultural tolerance and understanding. If you think #WeNeedDiverseBooks just as much as we do, sign up your blog and join us. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to comment, share on social media or Goodreads. Don’t forget to sign up for our no-stress Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge too, where you choose your own adventure and set your own rules!
Read book(s) set in another country or by author(s) from another country. Sign up whether you are reading for your own pleasure, with your kids, or both, fiction or non-fiction, it’s all fair game. Easy, right? If your TBR is like mine, I’m sure you have at least one book that qualifies! Perfect for busy parents who want to encourage learning about diversity and other cultures with your kids too. Read as much as you can or want.
Sign up now in the linky below by adding your blog, Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads URL. If you don’t have any of these, let me know in the comments that you intend to participate before the readathon officially ends on September 14, 2014 at 11:59pm so that you are still eligible for the giveaways.
Begin linking up your goals as early as Friday, August 29, 2014 so that you will be ready to go on Monday, September 1st!
Our event schedule includes Facebook and Twitter chats, mini-challenges and giveaways during the readathon. If you are a blogger who would like to host a mini-challenge, please complete the Mini-Challenge Host Form or a publicist who would like to giveaway a qualifying book during the readathon, please complete the Book Giveaway Form.
