Readathons

Readathin August Announcement

Hey Besties! Were BACK!!!! and we are so freaking excited to bring August’s Readathin Announcement. Make sure to add #readathinaug22 when making your blog posts, instagram, booktube or anything else.

What is Readathin

Well good question, Readathin is a readathon that Amanda from MANDA THE BIBLIO started a few years ago actually back in 2017 and now for the past few years 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).
