The minithon is upon us once more! Minithons are for the lazy. Minithons are for the uncommitted. Minithons are for us.
The minithon lasts 8 hours (10 AM to 6 PM CST), therefore making it a mini readathon, as opposed to the lovely Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon and 24in48, both of which you should participate in, but both of which are a longer commitment than this, the Busy Watching Netflix person's readathon.
By 'read for eight hours' what's really meant in the minithon is "read a little bit and eat a lot of snacks and post pictures of your books and your snacks, but mostly your snacks." We like to keep it a mini theme here, which mainly means justifying your books and your snacks to fit that theme. Does your book have children in it? Mini people! Does it have a dog! Mini wolf! Does it have pencils? Mini versions of graphite mines! or however you get graphite, I don't really know. I just picture toiling miners.
The point is, justify it or don't. Doesn't matter! What a no consequences sort of readathon! Sounds great, sign me UP. Speaking of which, sign-ups below! Use hashtag #minithon2018 and see you September 8! (or not!):
