Today’s the day! The Persephone Readathon has officially begun!
I hope you are as excited as I am to read, review, and chat about Persephone Books. Here’s to 11 days of lovely books and bookish community!
Keep scrolling for some important readathon details…
A few reminders:
-Details about the readathon can be found on my Persephone Readathon Page
–Don’t forget to sign up here. You can link to a sign-up/TBR post, to your blog homepage, or to your Instagram or Twitter accounts. Signing up makes it much easier for other participants to find you and helps create a nice little readathon community. (If you have an issue with the link up, you can leave your link in the comments section of the sign-up post instead.) You can still sign up at any point during the readathon!
-On that note, be sure to visit and comment on each other’s posts! Share your readathon experience and follow along with #PersephoneReadathon.
-If you have past Persephone reviews/posts that you’d like to repost during the readathon, feel free to do so!
What to expect:
– There will be an open post for each three-day period of the readathon (i.e. Days 2-4, Days 5-7, Days 8-10) plus a final one for Day 11. The point of these posts is to provide a central place to share your posts and/or completed challenges; discuss your reading plans and progress; and to chat about all things Persephone Books.
-You can find the list of (optional) daily challenges here. Feel free to share any of your responses on your blog, on social media, and/or in the comments section of the open posts.
–Some of the blog posts I have planned include: Author Spotlights, Persephone Adaptations, A Persephone Themed Sunday Salon, and Publishers Like Persephone Books
I hope you all enjoy the readathon. Happy Persephone reading!!
(Day 1) First Impressions Challenge: Tell us how you first discovered Persephone Books and/or the first Persephone book you read
I’ve been trying to remember how I first heard about Persephone Books, and I’m not sure if it was from the book blogging community or from Booktube. Whichever it was, I know that I discovered them sometime in late 2013 or early 2014.
The first Persephone title I read was The Making of a Marchioness by Frances Hodgson Burnett, although I read it as an ebook from the public domain. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson was the first book I read that was published by Persephone.
What were your Persephone First Impressions?
