2014 Beat the Heat Readathon

  • The readathon runs from August 11th at 12:01 AM to August 31st at 11:59 PM local time. 
  • There will be five mini challenges – a cover guessing challenge, a book blending challenge, an unscramble challenge, and a book guessing challenge, and a match game challenge. They will start on different dates and the challenges will only be open for a week, so be sure to check the challenge schedule (right below this section).
  • Feel free to tweet about it with us and start a discussion! Use hashtag #BtHReadathon when tweeting.
  • There will be a grand prize drawing that will go live on August 31st and stay open until September 7th. This should allow you enough time to do a wrap up post if you choose to. 
  • Remember, to participate in the grand prize giveaway, you MUST be signed up for the readathon. Readathon signups will stay open until August 24th. Sign up HERE or HERE
  • Some sort of progress post will be required for the grand prize giveaway. You can add your progress to your sign-up post if you made one, or make a new post.
  • All challenges are optional, but there will be bonus entries in the final giveaway for participating in mini-challenges. Feel free to participate in as many (or as few) as you’d like. The main goal of Beat the Heat is to READ and enjoy yourself!
