Escape to far-away worlds and enchanted forests or step your toe into the world of magical realism by participating in the Sci-Fi Summer Readathon. Size doesn’t matter. Full-blown fantasy or hardcore science fiction works. Pick up an old classic like one of Isaac Assimov’s books or, like I did, grab a new adventure like The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep. Take your time and drink deep of the story told.
Why Participate in a Readathon?
Reading events like a summer readathon are relaxing and enjoyable. Best of all, even a little bit of reading reduces stress. Maybe you haven’t been part of a readathon before. If so, then it’s time to give it a try. This one is easy because you have the entire month, all 30 days, to read your selected book. You can choose from either the science fiction world or fantasy. Given all that is happening in the world, reading is a quick and easy escape where your mind can roam freely.

Why This Readathon?
This reading event is happening at the perfect time for me because my book selection carries me back to my childhood and teen years. My dad worked for NASA and open science fictions books were scattered throughout the rooms and on tables. Think of the popular science fiction authors of the 60s and you’ll know who I read back then. Pure classics. Golden age authors. Then I met J.R.R. Tolkein and my world of fantasy expanded. I can’t read to delve into these pages.
