Every few months, Alex Butler from alexbutler.writer (on Instagram) and I plan a 24 hour period of just reading. That’s right! It’s a marathon, for reading! Hence, a Readathon. We are, by no means, the ones who created the term ‘Readathon’, in fact, our Readathon was born because of the wonderful Booktuber (Youtuber that talks about books – we’re very creative here in the book world :P) ReadbyZoe started posting readathons and I just really, really wanted to participate but couldn’t match her times, so, I messaged Alex and would you look at that, the To Be Readathon was born!
We decided to call it the To Be Readathon because there are far too many book in our To Be Read (TBR) piles! So, this is a perfect way to smash out some of those pesky books that really like to remain unread on our shelves! Plus, I’ll take any reason to sit and read 😛
We don’t have any dates picked out for any future readathons, nor do they fall over a certain time. We tend to plan our readathons around our work hours, during uni break. It’s just the easiest way! A good way to keep up to date with our To Be Readathon’s is to follow me on Instagram. I will post so many updates that you’ll get sick of me!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask away!
