A very good friend of mine Whitney at BooksWhitMe is hosting her first readathon on one of her favorite shows Skins UK. Naturally I had to do it because the 1. I love Whit, 2. The prompts are amazing and 3. I’m addicted to readathons (we have a support group, it’s called book blogging). I am actually very excited to say that I will also be co-hosting. Oh by the way I’m hosting Generation 3.
There are three teams one for each generation. You do not have to know anything about Skins to participate because I have never seen it. The readathon will take place the ENTIRE month of November. Each generation has 9 character based prompts that you are able to complete to earn points for your team. You can complete your team’s prompts or any other teams’ prompts for bonus points towards your team’s overall scores.
All prompts and challenges, whether they belong to your team or another, are completely optional and can be completed in any order that you like. The challenges are extra ways to earn even more points for your team. All prompts are combinable, which means that you can use one book to fill as many books as possible if you like or you can pick one book per prompt.
There will be a spreadsheet for you to keep track of everything from your pages to the challenges you finish.
The winning generation will be determined by averaging out each team’s points.
