I first found out about this amazing Read-a-thon from Aimal from the amazing Bookshelves and Paperbacks. It sounds absolutely fun for so many reasons!
- I don’t have to pick what I have to read, YAY!
- Less responsibility
- Interaction from YOU! You can have a say in what is reviewed next 🙂
How it Works
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.
Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers/bookstagrammers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
This Read-a-Thon is from August 6-13th and I am so pumped. For this challenge, I am picking some of my most exciting ARC copies I have! My goal is to read four books, so you’ll have 9 choices.
