Teeshirt sale for the Read In Public ReadaThing

LibraryThing teeshirtUpdate: The t-shirt sale has started early! Buy your t-shirt here.

For one week only Until August 8th, we’re having a sale on LibraryThing t-shirts.

See, we’re having a ReadaThing readathon in August, and the theme is Reading In Public*, and I figured you might want to wear a LibraryThing teeshirt.

So, we’re having a sale. Our t-shirts are normally $15, but they’ll be $9 from July 26th (at noon) through 8th (whenever we remember to change it back). You don’t need a coupon code, or a secret password. Anyone who buys a shirt during that week will automatically get the sale price.

The Reading In Public ReadaThing is one of a series of readathons hosted on LibraryThing’s forum system, Talk. A readathon is a chosen period of time (24 hours, usually) where members take turns reading, as to have non-stop reading during the event. Thanks to night-owls and international participation, there can be non-stop reading

*Unlike knitting in public, RIP is an unfortunate acronym.

**We decided that reading on your porch or in a lit window count, as long as someone else can see you. It’s kind of a reverse-peeping-tom.

    Reading in Public. This was a project done in Smithers, BC last year. Some photos were put in the local paper. I think high school students were doing it, probably under some summer program. I thought it was a great idea! I’m always reading in public so was sure they would capture me but no, I didn’t see anyone around taking my photo in the car waiting by the Drs. office, in Tim Horton’s, on a park bench, in numerous parking lots, even at the dump! but I guess they’re so used to seeing me by now I wasn’t news! 😉 I thought it was great fun.

    Do you mean read out loud or just to sit there and read to yourself?

  3. Sonya says:

    Just read to yourself.

    I didn’t even know Librarything had teeshirts! I want them all!
    Plus the RIP (which is a awesome acronym) sounds great as well!

    I always take a book with me when I go to the doctor’s. If I don’t have a book, I’ll have a newspaper or magazine.
