I’m doing my first readathon and you have all the power! I’ve been wanting to do a readathon for a while now but the times just did not match up to when I could dedicate my days to reading non-stop. But finally a time has arrived when I can stick my head into a book and not appear for days! And you get to choose what I read for those days. Here’s all the info so you can see if you want to join in as well!
When: 9th-16th July 2016
What Actually Happens: 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 etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the read-a-thon 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.
The Tag: Use the hashtag #MakeMeRead on both Twitter and Instagram to find others who are taking part or to vote on other bloggers polls!
I don’t have a lot of plans for July so I’m hoping to get a lot of reading and blogging done in the month, but I’m still being realistic. This readathon is only for a week and with my reading speed as slow as it is at the moment I’ll be happy if I finish 2 books in this time! I’m going to hope for 3 at an extra push.
I have a lot of other books I want to get to within the next few months than the 5 on this list but I didn’t want to include and series starters that I don’t have a published sequel for. If I love the book that will just make me upset and may interfere with the rest of my readathons, so I’m mainly going for books that the sequel isn’t published yet.
