Hey guys! Welcome back and if you’re new, I’m Amanda from A Court of Books and Love.
Today I have an exciting announcement! If you couldn’t tell by the title, I’m announcing the next Readathin!
Let’s just get into this!
Alright. So first, what is Readathin?
Readathin is a readathon that is held by Jessica from JessicaMarie493, Chelsea from A Very Bookish Girl, and myself. The goal of this readathon is to read books that you own! That’s pretty much it. If you’re reading books you own, you’re winning.
This round there’s actually a challenge that isn’t for a book you own but I’ll explain that later.
We held the first round of Readathin in August and it was such a blast! I can’t wait to have the next one in….
November!!!! The next readathin will be held in November! I know if you are following the Twitter and were around the last day of the last round, this was already announced. But for those who didn’t know, here’s the announcement!
So, now that we know when, let’s talk about some challenges!
If you have any questions, feel free to comment down below or send one of us a message asking! We’re always happy to answer any you may have!
I will have a Google Doc linked on the Twitter (if you click here you can go to the Twitter account for Readathin) so you can find just this list without the explanations to make things easier when creating your TBR.
So let’s talk challenges.
1. Read a 2017 Release
This can be any book that was released in 2017. Pretty self-explanatory. But here are a few examples of books I own.
2. Read a Diverse Read
For this, you can read anything that would count as diverse. If you need some recommendations from your shelves, let us know and we can help!
3. Read a book that is related to your favorite emoji
Even I have a tough one with this. But that’s just because I change my emoji often. And none of my books seem to fit into it. But you can interpret this however you please.
4. Read a book with a fall-themed cover.
This is any book that is fall related. It could be fall colored, have leaves on it, etc.
5. Start and finish a series
This counts duologies,trilogies, or series. Whichever you think you can manage. I do recommend duologies or even a graphic novel series. Those would be easiest.
6. Read a book in 24 hours
This is pretty self explanatory. Start a book and finish it within the next 24 hours. Definitely go for a smaller book or a graphic novel.
7. Read a new to you author
Again. Easy. Read from an author you’ve never read from before.
8. Buddy read a book
Read a book along with someone else. Book clubs/buddy read groups DO count.
9. Read a horror/thriller
I wouldn’t really recommend reading Stephen King during this but it’s an example.
10. Read a book outside your favorite genre
Doesn’t have to be one you hate. Can even be a genre you love but it’s not your favorite. just something that is outside your favorite.
11. Read an eBook
Last time a lot of people were asking if eBooks were okay and of course they are! They are part of your TBR. So we decided to add it as a challenge!
12. Listen to the audiobook of a book you own
I love listening to audiobooks and it’s a good way to get through more books! So listen away!
13. Read a book that counts toward another readathon
I know of two that are going on in November (possibly three) outside of Readathin. If you want to know about some, just Google it or ask one of us hosts.
14. Read the book that’s due back to the library the soonest
We wanted to incorporate some library books into this just because. So here’s one that counts towards the library. Whichever book you need to return the soonest, read that.
15. Read a book that you put down previously
In other words, a book you started but haven’t finished yet.
16. Read a book you got from a subscription box
I get OwlCrate every month and I’m so bad about reading the books I get. So November will be the one where I get to at least one of them.
17. Read a book you got for free (gift, ARC, giveaway, etc)
This could count toward so many different things from ARCs to free eBooks to library books to swap books. So many options here and make sure you go wild with it!
18. Read 4 books that count for at least 8 challenges
So for this one, you will read 4 books, each of which count toward 2 separate challenges. Here’s a little example:
Book 1: Challenge 1 and 2
Book 2: Challenge 8 and 4
Book 3: Challenge 12 and 16
Book 4: Challenge 6 and 3
We didn’t want to pressure you guys into reading a certain number of books so we made it a challenge to read that amount.
Just remember to have fun with this! It’s supposed to be fun and laid back. Let’s keep it that way.
We’re always open to questions or recommendations so make sure to let us know any that you have.
We’re unsure about the sprinting schedule right now but we will update the list if need be.
Thank you all so much for participating last time and don’t forget to use the hashtag #ReadathinNov17 to stay connected with everyone!
Share your TBRs on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag so we can see and share them!
