#BorrowAThon Day 1 Schedule

Welcome to everyone who is participating this week and thank you so much for joining! I hope you are all looking forward to a wonderful week of reading borrowed books! I know that I certainly am! :)

Throughout the week I will be posting one of these schedule blog posts a day so you will know what will be going on each day. These posts will be going live at 1AM EST*, but if you want to know the overview of the week ahead of time, check out the #BorrowAThon schedule blog post. These daily schedules will have more detail and direction for each of the activities but you can pretty much gather enough information in order to get an idea solely based on the original schedule. 

Today, because it's the first day and we want to kick off with tons of excitement, we're going to kick it off with BOTH a social media challenge AND a Twitter chat! I hope you're able to participate in both! <3

Social Media Challenge: Share your #BorrowAThon TBR!

This one is fairly simple - show off your TBR pile (to-be-read pile, or the stack of books that you're planning to read this week) for this week on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, your blog, or all four! Make sure you use the hashtag #BorrowAThon so everyone can see! If you're interested in checking out my TBR pile, you can find my YouTube video here (though it has changed ever so slightly) and follow me on Twitter where I will be posting a photo at some point today!

Introductory Twitter chat at 9PM EST*!

We will be coming together for an hour-long Twitter chat at 9PM EST* this evening! This chat will allow all of the participants to get to know each other a little bit because the whole point of a readathon is to read as a community! If you're unsure how Twitter chats work or if you've never participated in one before, check out this article for more information. I hope to see you there!

Make sure you're following @BorrowAThon on Twitter for continuous updates and post along with the hashtag #BorrowAThon!

*All Twitter chats and daily schedule posts are scheduled in EST as that is the time zone the host lives in. Make sure you're looking into the time zone difference for your area so you do not miss out on the fun of the chats! You can find a time zone converter here to help you figure out the difference.

  1. Cool challenge for day 1. Not sure if I'll be on the twitter chat but I'll try cause I'd love to meet some other participants.
