We’ve passed 100 readers signed up for the The Dark is Rising 40th Anniversary Readathon!
At 3:41 am my time (Mountain Standard Time), someone in Australia/New Zealand became the 100th person to sign up for the Readathon! We have since surpassed that number and currently stand at 104.
All I can say is: Unbelievable!
The readers started flooding in when Susan Cooper posted the link to the Readathon on her Facebook page to her 3200+ followers at 10:12 am (MST). In the 24 hours after Susan's post, we had 51 people sign up which almost doubled our number! We also gained 26 new Facebook members and a few more Twitter followers.
So, we currently have 104 readers signed up in at least 12 countries!
I would just like to sincerely thank Ms. Cooper and her daughter for their support of this project. This is going to be fun!
Thanks also to everyone who has joined up and spread the word. If you haven’t officially signed-up - what are you waiting for!
We start the journey soon...
