Pirateathon

Another readathon you say? Always I say. I still be finishing up Orilium in September since some of the prompts slowed me down but I’ll also be taking part in the pirate theme readathon lead by Scurvy Sal. I’m running as Captain Liza Deepsea, and here is a little bit more about how the Pirateathon is structured.

Reading Prompts for Pirateathon

Acquire a Ship: Read a book that’s 200+ pages long. The bigger the book, the bigger your ship. This prompt only needs to be completed once.

  • 301-400 pages: Schooner
  • 401-500 pages: Frigate
  • 501+ pages: Brigantine

Hoist the Colors: Read a book whose cover is predominantly one color. That’s the color of your pirate flag, matey! This prompt only needs to be completed once.
