About Bookend Events

Bookend Events is a quarterly event that aspires to bring the book blogging community closer together! Home to not only Blogoween, but also #Tidyathon and other amazing events throughout the year. Bookend events is also active participants in several various readathons throughout the year as well!


  • Hosts for Bookending Winter 2019 are NOT eligible for entering.
    • You’re already coming up with prompts. I’m not that evil to make you come up with another.
    • Seriously. This is for others to shine. Don’t take their spotlight.
    • You can promote though. And you definitely should. You can also enter for fun, but it won’t be qualified.
  • Your board must be public and cannot be secret for the duration of the contest.
  • Even more bonus brownie points if your board hints at your prompt. Guessing games are fun, but we’re bad at them. We try, though.
  • Pins don’t have to be book-related and you do NOT have to be a book blogger to enter.
  • Winner will be chosen and contacted November 18-19 and will have 48 hours to respond. Prompt does not have to be ready when contacted.
