One of the most awesome things about the book blogging community is all the events that you can participate in. Here are a few that you can join in February.
February #BookBlogging Events
Feb. 1 – 11, 2018. The Persephone ReadaThon. The goal is simply to enjoy reading and discussing all things Persephone Books. Persephone Books are a London based independent publisher and bookseller, who specialize in neglected books by (mostly) women writers from (mainly) the mid-twentieth century.
Feb. 4, 2018. 2018 Big Game’s On Read-a-thon! No rules, no guidelines, just read. No start/end times, just read at your leisure.ini-challenges will be created to break up your reading time. Participating in these challenges is not mandatory, but you will be eligible for a number of great prizes!
Continued from last month …
Dec.1 – Feb. 28, 2018. Bookish Bingo: Winter 2017-18. There’s a new bingo card with 24 different categories. The object of the game is to get as many bingos as possible – and also to possibly expand your reading horizons. The only real rules are that you can only have one square per book, so no doubling up on challenges, and you can only count one DNF.
I didn’t find many events this month, so if you know of any, please share in the comments below.
