How to Enjoy the TDiR Readathon (2017):
Some people have asked the question: What is a readathon? What does this readathon entail?
I’m glad you asked! Here is a quick hit on what the readathon entails or “How To Readathon”.
Here is a step-by-step:
There is no sign up this year so please join us on one of our social media platforms. Our group on Facebook (over 285 members) is full of lively discussion about everything TDiR and Susan Cooper. Our Twitter account has over 150 followers and provides a pulse on TDiR on the tweets. Between the two, there’s always a discussion going on! We also have a minor presence on LiveJournal. More info where you can find us is on our Contact Us page.
2. Read the books!
On December 1st (or whenever you can), we start reading the Sequence beginning with Over Sea, Under Stone. One of the reasons we start earlier in December is so people can read the first book and then read The Dark is Rising during Christmas in which the book is set. Now, of course, this is not mandatory but many people like to read it this way. There is also a full reading schedule posted on this site, or you can read at your own pace. Everyone has a different schedule so I want to keep it as open and inclusive as possible.
3. Share your experience!
We’d love you know what your thoughts are on the books. Start a discussion on Facebook or Twitter, post a comment on our blog or on Susan Cooper’s Facebook page, email us, or write about it on your blog, Share your comments and opinions however you wish. And if you write a blog post, let us know and we’ll let the community know. All of us have a TDiR memory or moment to share.
5. Enjoy yourself!
The readathon is all about re-living the magic of this series (or discovering it for the first time) with a global community that loves these books, too. Have fun and happy reading!
