So. It's September 19. Exactly one month from today, national teen read week will end.
What is Teen Read Week, you ask?
National Teen Read Week is a week dedicated to encouraging reading in teens across American and the world. It's hosted by YALSA or Young Adult Library Services Association.
When is Teen Read Week?
This year's teen read week is October 13-19.
What happens during Teen Read Week?
It's really just a week of encouraging teens to read books, use their libraries, and fall in love with reading. This years theme is Seek the Unknown @ Your Library.
What is Inklined doing for Teen Read Week?
Inklined is hosting a blog tour. There will hopefully be posts at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There will also be an 8:00 pm post Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
What is a blog tour?
A blog tour is an online event that travels from blog to blog. It is a series of connected or related posts all linked together by the hosting blog, in this case, Inklined.
Can my blog be part of the blog tour?
That depends. Are you a teen or author of a blog mostly read by teens? Do you like books and/or reading? Will you be able to write a blog post and schedule it for sometime in the week of October 13-19? If you answered, "Yes," to all of those questions, then yes! Your blog should be able to join the blog tour. Video bloggers are welcome, too!
Why would I want to be part of the blog tour?
Well, not only is this blog tour a way of contributing to Teen Read Week, encouraging authors, and spreading the love of books to more people, but the blog tour helps bring people to your blog. It lets you introduce new blogs to your readers, and it's fun!
