** Read a page, a chapter, a book, or several**
Following on from last year’s BookCrossing 24 hour Readathon, we are excited to announce the dates for 2020 as Saturday April 18th!

Given the vast spread of BookCrossers around the world, the aim is that from 12:01am - 11:59pm Pacific Time Zone (PDT), there will be a BookCrosser somewhere in the world who is reading a book as part of this Readathon!

In light of the current global situation, with many countries having declared compulsory self-isolation, this is a brilliant opportunity for the BookCrossing community to virtually come together to chat and read along with fellow BookCrossers, and knock some books off your Mount To Be Read mountains.

What we want to know right now is:
1) are you participating?
2) will you be posting via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook using the #BC24HrReadathon hashtag - and if so, let us have your username so we can follow you?
3) do you intend to take part only in the forum, or perhaps also use a platform such as Imgur or Flickr to share photos?
4) where in the world are you?

- Note: all BC24HrReadathon related posts will be posted in the Fun and Games forum. If that is a forum you have hidden using your Wings option to filter your topic list, make sure you add it back in.
- Note: As this was an FAQ last year: to participate, you are not expected to read for 24 hours (although we will cheer you on if this is a challenge you set for yourself!), rather we'd like you to check in at some point within the Readathon's 24 hour window, to let us know that you are reading and where in the world you are.

See what time the Readathon starts where you are: https://www.timeanddate.com/---/fixedtime.html?...

Event countdown: https://www.timeanddate.com/---/generic?...

 

I'm in.

ETA: When I tried to add this to my phone's calendar, it kept changing it to Readathin.

If only we could read ourselves thin!

Forgot to say, I'm in Maine USA.

I'm in the USA, and have already been tackling my TBR.mountain over the last two weeks of our shelter in place order/school closing (we closed before the governor issued all schools closed then the state shut down). It's nice to be getting older books read, but since I'm not wild releasing currently my piles are just shifting around the room.

HAHAHAHAHA🤣...isn't that the TRUTH, nimrodiel...although in my case, the books are shifting piles throughout the entire HOUSE!!!📚📕📖📚📗📖📚📘📖📚📙📖📚

I most certainly love a readathon to connect with our fellow BCers, especially now that the BC Con is postponed.

Hooray! I'm looking forward to this. I'm in the UK and I'll be posting here. I'm on Twitter @CalligraphyKate but that's all still rather new to me!

Saw this just in the nick of time- it's already April 13. I would have been so sad if I'd missed it! Not sure what I'll be reading, but it will be a good excuse to get through a book so I have something to release on International BookCrossing Day April 21. (Sadly, reading time has been scarce for me recently.)
1) I'm in! As luck would have it, I took the day off work to 'attend ' a conference (virtually, of course!). The conference is just a daytime thing, so I will be able to set aside a couple of hours to read in the evening.
2) I'll post on Facebook using the hashtag. (Fun fact: I just learned about hashtags for this event last year.) My name is Heather Wrigley. I don't use Twitter nor Instagram.
3) I will also post in the Readathon forum if I remember.
4) I'm in Calgary, Alberta (Mountain Daylight Time, GMT-7).
Looking forward to it!

 

1) are you participating?
Yes.

I'll participate! (My life's a readathon, pretty much, so I don't often sign up for specific ones, but as it's not going to be possible to do my usual multi-state road trip for BookCrossing Day I'd like to try some alternative ways to celebrate.) Will post in the forums, with photos on Flickr; am also on Facebook (Elizabeth Rust). Am in New Hampshire, USA.

What do you do, when bookcrossing in Iran, if I may ask?

 

I’ve wild released some books, but the founders didn’t announce and I gave up. But I participate in a Persian group which is mostly the same as bookcrosding, we lend books for free to people in the streets.
Iranians don’t know Bookcrossing well :(

 

My instagram is @jantineronde, but it's private. I think I can tag though? so maybe then it'll be visible? (I really have no clue...)
I'll read in Tilburg, the Netherlands

 

I'll stick to a couple of chapters from just one book if that's okay. ;-)

1) I will participate
2) I'll post on twitter, @AylaMey
3) I'm not even sure I'll be posting on the forum. I will post a picture on Twitter of what I'm reading
4) I'm Dutch and living in Utrecht, The Netherlands

2) will you be posting via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook using the #BC24HrReadathon hashtag - and if so, let us have your username so we can follow you? Probably -- I am cheryl6of8 on Instagram, don't tweet or FB
3) do you intend to take part only in the forum, or perhaps also use a platform such as Imgur or Flickr to share photos? I will try to remember to post something on the forum, but I may forget because I will be BUSY READING A BOOK! (so happy about that!)
4) where in the world are you? Silver Spring, MD, USA -- a few miles from SqNutZips, right in the heart of our local hot zone :(
