Easter Readathon 2021 Announcement

That’s right folks, Easter Readathon is back for the FOURTH year running. (How has it been four years since I started this, idek?)

As usual, I am here to bring you long-weekend shennanigans on Twitter, Instagram, and this time YouTube as well.

Yellow banner with pink, yellow, and green flowers at the bottom. The text reads: Easter Readathon 2021 with two illustrated rabbits underneath.

Details

This year’s readathon will run from 12.01am on Friday 2nd April to 11.59pm on Monday 5th April in your time zone. (I’ll be on GMT.)

Although the readathon is over Easter weekend, it’s more spring-themed than Easter-themed. Everyone is welcome to take part, regardless of whether you celebrate Easter or not.

What’s different this year

In previous years, I’ve hosted reading sprints on Twitter, but this year I’ll be hosting them live on my YouTube channel over the weekend.

The dates and times will be announced closer to the start of the readathon and I’ll have guests joining me.

The giveaway setup is also slightly different this year. To enter, you’ll need to complete the Googleform, which is linked below.

Prompts

Similar to last year, there’ll be a number of prompts for you to complete if you wish. I know some people enjoy prompts for the structure they offer, which is why I’ve included them, but they’re entirely optional so if you’d rather mood read or not do them, that’s completely fine.

I’ve taken one prompt out from last year so there are four this year instead of five (one for each day of the long weekend, if you will).

Banner with the readathon prompts listed. Prompt 1: Read a book that gives you spring vibes. Prompt 2: Read a book about new beginnings. Prompt 3: Read a book that's under 250 pages. Prompt 4: Read a book with a pastel cover.

Giveaway

There will be a giveaway again this year for everyone who takes part in the readathon. The prize is a book of your choice (value up to £15).

Rules

Entries are open INTL as long as Book Depository or Blackwells ship to you.

You must show proof that you’ve taken part in the readathon. This can be in the form of:

  • A blog post with your TBR, or a blog post wrapping up what you read during the readathon
  • A Booktube TBR or wrap up video
  • An Instagram post of your TBR
  • Tweets showing a photo of your TBR
  • Tweets of your progress throughout the readathon

The giveaway will be open from 12.01am on Friday 2nd April until 11.59pm Thursday 8th April (to give everyone enough time to post their wrap ups).

To enter, you’ll need to fill out the Googleform below.

I’ll be posting my TBR for the readathon in the next week, so keep an eye out for that to find out what I’ll be reading.

If you’re planning to take part please PLEASE link me to your TBRs, I’d love to know what you’re going to be reading!


Will you be taking part in the readathon? What do you think you’ll read?

  1. Omg yaay, so excited for the Easter Readathon! I don’t think I’ll have any assignments around that time so I would definitely participate if that’s possible 😀

  2. I love those prompts. Not gonna lie, when I see a book is less than 300 pages, I smile. There’s something so satisfying about those short, meaningful, and fun reads.
