Join Our Discworld Read-a-thon!

discworld turtle

Last Wednesday in my Books On My TBR I’m Most Intimidated By” post, I expressed my reluctance at reading through Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series–because 41 books is rather daunting, no matter how short or light they are–and the lovely Nicole from The Bookworm Drinketh suggested that we set up a readathon and gather other bloggers who might also be interested. And since I’m terrible with solo commitments, that sounded like the PERFECT thing.

So here’s how this is going to work:

– We will read through one book per month, and every last Monday of each month we will all post our reviews/thoughts/rants on that book. We’ll also include the blog links of all the other participants so that we can all share and comment.

– At the start of each month, Nicole and I will make a post introducing the book we’ll be reading that month and do a headcount of everyone who’s interested (Nicole will contact you afterwards and give you the master list of all the participants). You’re in no way required to join in for every month, but if you do sign up, we ask that you commit to it or let us know immediately if you change your mind.

The Colour of Magic
We will start on July with THE COLOUR OF MAGIC, and theΒ  review post date will be July 23rd.Β 





If you’d like to join us for July, comment below or just contact through Goodreads, Twitter, email, or my contact page.Β 

So spread the word! I think this will be a fun experience whether you’re new to Discworld or just want to chance to reread some of your favourites in the series and share your thoughts on them.

    I love this idea and am keen to join! πŸ™‚

    I’ve read a few of his novels but don’t mind re-reading them at all. Now I just need to set up a reminder so I don’t forget all about it.. that’s usually my biggest problem with everything. πŸ™‚

    That’s a wonderful idea! ❀ I am a Pratchett's fan and I have just started a book of his today (and enjoying every page of it!). I won't take part in this read-a-thon, sadly, because I don't have all my Pratchett's books at home with me (most of them are at my parents house) but it's a great, great idea! πŸ™‚

      Feel free to join us another time! The great thing about this read-a-thon is that you can drop in and out as you find the time and inclination! Kathy and I will post a reminder monthly to remind everyone which book we’re on, get a head count and let people know what date were going to post!

      I’m going to send out the finalized participants list about a week before our posts go up. You’re welcome to change your mind anytime up until then, and if you are unable to join this month, you can always join us in future months as well! We’re trying to keep it as stress free as possible. πŸ˜„πŸ»

    Fantastic idea! I have actually read all of them (apart from the last one, I’m saving it for a special moment as it’s the last one we’ll ever have ;_;) but they are so due a re-read! My theatre company is also performing Wyrd Sisters this month, so I’ve been dipping into the Discworld quite a bit. Sign me up!

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be interesting to read through content from other writers and use
    something from their websites.
