What is the Reading Rush and when is it?
The Reading Rush is a week-long readathon that anyone can participate in to try and read as many books as possible! This year it is happening July 22nd – July 28th!
What’s going on with the badges?
We have been having tons of issues with the website (as I’m sure you’ve all noticed, it’s been madness!) but the most recent issue appears to be the badges. We’ve received many emails about the badges not being awarded properly, and we’ve been doing our best to award them manually, but the website was so slow and was constantly crashing (even for us! we feel your pain!) that it was taking 15 minutes per badge, which was unmanageable. Our current solution is to remove the badges from the website entirely, with the hope that we’ll be able to put them back up in a different way that won’t keep crashing the website. For now, the website is fast, so let’s be happy about that!
Having troubles signing up?
Unfortunately our sign up system doesn’t get along with everyone’s email accounts, but don’t worry! Every day at 10AM PST and 10PM PST we manually activate any account that might get stuck! So if you haven’t received your activation email, or your activation link isn’t working, just wait until a few minutes after 10AM PST or 10PM PST and you’ll be able to log in!
Is the Reading Rush the same as the BookTubeAThon?
Basically, yes! The Reading Rush was originally named the BookTubeAThon but we changed our name to make sure everyone who wanted to participate (whether or not they made booktube videos) felt welcome! It’s the same concept with similar challenges, just a little bit improved!
What can I do on the website?
Once you create a profile by signing up, you can participate in forums, track your reading statistics, check the Hall of Fame to see cool content, and earn badges throughout the event!
What are the Reading Challenges?
The official reading challenges are issued out by the Reading Rush every year as a way to challenge yourself to pick different books to read during the week! If you complete them you get a badge on your profile! They are not mandatory, you can combine challenges if you want, they are just for added fun!
