Lately I’ve been researching readathons, and there are an overwhelming number of them out there in the blogosphere! I considered doing the Tome Topple this month, but I just didn’t have enough time to prepare for it and didn’t feel like taking on that kind of a challenge during Thanksgiving week.
As luck would have it, I stumbled upon a laid-back readathon by accident today that comes at a PERFECT time to wrap up my November TBR. The Thanksgiving Readathon, hosted by Ottavia @ Novels and Nonfiction and Jackie @ Death At Tsundoku, is a five day readathon with the goal of reading as many books as you can.
Here are the rules:
Dates: Wednesday, November 22nd – Sunday, November 26th 2017
To take part in the Readathon:
- Read as many books as you can in those 5 days.
- Use the hashtag #ThanksgivingReadathon to share your participation and progress on Twitter and other social media sites.
- Publish a Sign-Up Post between Monday, November 20th and Wednesday, November 22nd with your readathon TBR and goals. Bonus: Share your families holiday traditions if you’d like.
- Publish a Wrap-Up Post on Monday, November 27th sharing your readathon victories. Bonus: Share what you are thankful for this year.
At the beginning of November I had a goal to read my Book of the Month selection, Future Home of the Living God, as well as all seven books from The Chronicles of Narnia series. I started off great, but now I still have four and half Narnia books left to go. It’s unlikely I’ll finish ALL of them during this readathon, but here is my TBR just in case I surprise myself!
What are some readathons that you’ve done or try to do each year? Any tips or tricks for staying on track with your reading? Let me know in the comments!
