#ReadAThons

Today’s discussion is going to be about readathons and a special announcement at the end of this post.

I have participated in a handful of readathons.  Out of the ones that I have participated in, my favorites are the Biannual Bibliothon and DiverseAThon.  The Biannual Bibliothon occurs twice a year and has reading challenges, video challenges, and Instagram challenges.  I have only ever done the reading challenges, but have participated on Twitter.  The Biannual Bibliothon is always a lot of fun, and the two times I have participated, I have read books that I never thought I would ever read and have been pushed out of my comfort zone.  DiverseAThon is another readathon that I love because it pushes people to diversify their reading, and read books that have more diverse topics.  Diversity is very important because the world we live in is so diverse and I think literature needs to be more reflective of that.  I think DiverseAThon happens more than once a year too, but I’m not 100% sure.  One of the things that I love about readathons is that they are a great way to interact with other members of the online book community.  These are my favorite readathons, what are some of yours?

Special Announcement:
This year for The Summer Biannual Bibliothon, bloggers have been invited to host challenges on their blogs.  I am very excited to announce that I am one of the blogger hosts and get to host a challenge on my blog!  I will be posting a more official announcement in the future with all the details!

  1. I love readathons so much!!! I don’t really do too well in them, but I don’t mind because I have so much fun 😀 I like putting together a TBR and it motivates me to read more. I think were a lot of people go wrong is how much pressure they put on themselves when participating. I feel like the key is to just relax and enjoy the experience. I love using the hashtags and interacting with everyone on social media.
    Also, congrats on hosting a challenge this year!! That’s so cool 😀
