Trisha | 31440 comments Crazy for YA is hosting another week-long Readathon!
Start Date: June 19th End Date: June 25th

We will have the optional point system again. This is a way to add some competitiveness into our readathons (we all love that!) and a way to push ourselves to read more!

Our point system will look like this:

450+ : 5pt
300+ : 4pt
200+ : 3pt
100+ : 2pt
Under 100 : 1pt

Sequel: 4pt
First In Series: 3pt
Standalone: 2pt
Prequels & Manga: 1 pt

*Everyone will start at the same time. Since I am in EST time I will start at midnight.

Trisha | 31440 comments Count down clock

This is new and I'm hoping to ensures we all start at the same time!! I'll create a "stop" clock as well

Trisha | 31440 comments Okay guys, this is the part I'm really bad at: figuring out when everyone should start

SO, instead of listing times when everyone should start, I will update POST #2 with a countdown clock - so we all start at the same time!

message 30: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I love the clock!! Will it also have a countdown for when we will stop reading? It's so cute!!

Thank you for setting up this read-a-thon!!

message 31: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments Yes, once we get rolling (and this countdown goes to Zero)
I'll make a new one that counts us down to STOP

Yeah, lol, I'm SO SO bad at figuring out when everyone needed to start - I just could not wrap my brain around whether I subtracted hours or days or whatnot.

Fingers crossed this works easier :)

message 32: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm sure it will work well for everyone and I think it's a brilliant idea that will save you a lot of unnecessary and valuable time!
