Good Morning BookBlogger Friends!!! New year… Same Awesome READATHON coming at it again.
We are extremely excited to start the new year with a fun, outgoing Readathin this round. Keep reading to find out what we are going to be doing!
REMEMBER TO DRINK YOUR WATER AND GET SOME READING DONE TODAY!
🌻What is Readathin?
Well good question, Readathin is a readathon that Amanda from A Court Of Books And Love started a few years ago actually back in 2017 and now she thoughtfully has added myself to help run it.
Readathin is a month long readathon that is held in February, May, August, and November every year.
The goal for Readathin is to “thin” out your TBRs.
While you can read any books you have on your TBR, the main purpose of the readathon is to read books from your physical TBR (or eTBR since we all know those can get out of hand as well).
This month we will be doing a Spin Wheel to pick our reading prompts/ TBR’s https://wheelofnames.com/view/jev-gem/ There are 15 prompts the wheel will then be spun and choose which prompt you will start off with. When you are done with said prompt you will then spin the wheel again to choose your next prompt. You will do this until the end of the month or until you finish all of the prompts, you can also repeat a prompt if you would like to keep going through out the month.
