So, this post is going to reveal what I am going to attempt starting Monday, and it’s the BookTube Read-a-thon, or BookTube-a-thon for short. This was started by two people in the BookTube community on YouTube: padfootandprongs07 and ArielBissett, and I can link their videos where they explain the gist of it.

It’s basically a marathon of reading starting on Monday, July 15 to Sunday, July 21, and there are 7 challenges you can attempt to do during this read-a-thon.
1) read an average of 300 pages a day
2) read a book with over 500 pages
3) re-read one book
4) finish a series/trilogy
5) read a book that’s been on your shelf forever
6) listen to an audiobook
7) read a classic
It’s all official sounding, but I’m just going to be participating in it as leisurely as I can. Sure I’m still reading as it is, even without the read-a-thon, but this will give the opportunity to push myself to read even more and read books that fit certain categories and fun things like listening to an audiobook… I think it will give me more motivation to read, so we’ll see about that!
I haven’t deciding on which books I want to do for the challenges, and I’m sure I can combine the challenges together or have books that fit multiple challenges. I think I’ll do videos for the next two Mondays, both to start the read-a-thon and let everyone know which books I ended up deciding on and to wrap up after the read-a-thon ends. Not sure what I’ll do on that Thursday, but we shall see as always.
Alright, happy reading in the meantime everyone! Take care!
