DAReadathon Wrap Up.png

#DAReadathon concluded last week, thank you so much to everyone for participating in reading and promoting diverse books in the first fortnight of the year. I hope we will all continue to do so for the remainder of 2017!

For everyone who participated in the event and want their reading efforts counted towards their Hogwarts House Points, please leave the following details in the comment below:

Name:
Blog:
Hogwarts House
Expecto Patronum:
 Points (1 pt per 10 pages read) +  5 Points Completion Bonus
Expelliarmus: Points (1 pt per 10 pages read) +  5 Points Completion Bonus
Protego: Points (1 pt per 10 pages read) +  5 Points Completion Bonus
Reducto: Points (1 pt per 10 pages read) +  5 Points Completion Bonus

Stupefy: Points (1 pt per 10 pages read) +  5 Points Completion Bonus
Lumos: Points (1 pt per 10 pages read) +  5 Points Completion Bonus
NOTE: If you read audiobooks, you receive 1 point per 15 minutes & 5 points completion bonus. If you read manga or graphic novels, 1/2 the number of points you would receive if you read a book.
Review Points:
 5 house points per reviews for the books above posted between 1/1 until 22/1.
Crossposting Your Reviews: 1 extra points for every review you crosspost to Goodreads and commercial sites, maximum of 3 points per book for this.
Social Media Points: Earned from tweeting/photos. Please be honest! I will be doing a check! Max points from tweeting is 40 (20 maximum from tweets, 20 maximum from photos).
Extra Books Read Bonus:  1 pt per 10 pages read for books you completed AFTER you finished the initial 7 challenges.
Total: 

The points will be counted and the winning House revealed on 31st of January!

This obviously all depends on everyone’s honesty, as I can’t actually use Vitaserum to verify whether you’ve read all the books or the will to shift through all your tweets to count up the points. I trust that all you lovely people will play fair ❤ Than you once more for joining, and I hope I’ll see you if there is a future round.

    If my numbers are off, it’s because I’m bad at math, not because I’m cheating.

    This was excellent, and I just wish I’d had time to read all seven! Thanks so much for organizing it. What a great way to celebrate all kinds of stories and authors.

  10. This was so much fun. I know I didn’t even complete all the prompts, but they really did make me think, and that’s half a win here, isn’t it? I was really happy with my results, and I now have a nice little stack of recs to read going forward! Do this again! 😉
