So I am enjoying writing my new blog, discovering so many classic film enthusiasts and participating in all the blogathons. So one of those blogathons I am looking forward to is this one, hosted by Raquel on her blog Out of the Past. Her blogathon named 2015 Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge, has these interesting features.
Here are the details:
Runs June 1st to September 1st, 2015
Sign up for the challenge here.
Read a classic film book
Write a review and post it on your BLOG or Goodreads profile
Submit your review link here.
Repeat until you have read and reviewed 6 books!
Review 6 and be automatically entered to win a prize.
Go to the official summer reading page for full details including rules, entry forms, prize details, a challenge button and more.
Six books in three months. It’s not as difficult as it sounds! Aim for reading two books each month. Don’t procrastinate! Keep the two books a month pace or you’ll fall behind. You can do it. If you need some help, check out my 10 tips for getting in more classic film reading.
If you want to read fewer than six books, that’s okay too! Just set a goal that works for you. You can start reading and reviewing at any time, just make sure your reviews are up by September 1st.
If you do complete six books in the time frame given, you’ll be eligible for a prize! I’ll randomly select one person to receive the following prize pack:
- A copy of Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide: From the Silent Era through 1965 3rd Edition, revised by Leonard Maltin and presented by Turner Classic Movies
- Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz Fan Club pins from Your Fan Club by Kate Gabrielle
- TCM pen purchased from the 2015 TCMFF gift shop
Depending on the number of challenge finishers, I’ll plan on a runner-up prize too. Note the Maltin guide doesn’t come out until late September so the prize won’t ship until October.
Again, all the details about the challenge are on the dedicated page which can be accessed at the header of this blog. Good luck to all participants!
