September #BookBlogger Events and 3 on Instagram

One of the most awesome things about the book blogging community is all the events that you can participate in. September is Library Card Sign-Up Month and  September 23-29, 2018 is Banned Books Week which celebrates the freedom to read. Check out the Top 10 Most Challenged Books List. September is also National Translation Month.

September #Bookish Events – On Blogs

Sep. 1 – Oct. 31. Readers Imbibing Peril. Read books (and watch movies) along the genres of Mystery, Suspense, Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror, Supernatural or something similar. There’s different levels, so check out one of my favorite online events of the year.

Sep. TBD. Bloggiesta. There are new hosts this time around, but it looks like it’s going to be the same awesome, motivating event that it usually is. Work on your blog, work with others, and get engaged in the book blogging community.

Sep. 24-28. Fall Into Fall Readathon. This Readathon is about letting summer reading go, and diving into the cozy bookishness of fall. Every day will have an easy bookish task (that isn’t necessarily reading!) that you can do in your spare time, along with rad giveaways and cozy fall tips, tricks, and reading recommendations.

Sep. – Nov. Bookish Bingo: Fall 2018. Bookish Bingo is a seasonal feature wherein we try to expand our reading horizons a bit and cover as much of the bingo card as possible. You can only use one square per book, and all books must be read in September, October or November.

Sep. 1-Nov. 22. Sweater Weather Reading Challenge. Books that may counted can have Fall / Autumn themed titles, the word Fall in the title, the months of Fall in the title, the word harvest in the title, be about school themes (fall is time to go back to school), have leaves, fall colored trees, apples, or pumpkins on the cover.

Jun. 22 – Sep. 22, 2018. #SummerSoLit Book Bingo Challenge 2018. The #SummerSoLit challenge takes the form of a bingo board. The baseline goal is to read a book for two single lines vertically, horizontally, or diagonally on the board. On the last day of the reading challenge come back to your host page to enter your completed books.

  1. Thank you, thank you! I wanted to do RIP again this year but forgot to look for the link & sign-up – I will definitely head over there to sign up! Can;t believe it;s actually fall yet – still feels like summer here.

    And I very much enjoyed the Take Back Your Shelves Readathon last weekend!

    Happy September!
