Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley will again be hosting the Make Me Read It Read-a-thon! Basically, this read-a-thon allows your friends and audience to vote for what you’ll be reading. This year, the read-a-thon will be from July 9th to the 16th! You can sign up here.
What Is This Read-a-thon About?
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you've borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I'd pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.
Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there's a tie, then it's your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
I don't participate in a lot of read-a-thons ever since realizing that I'm generally terrible at them. But... this one seems super unique and I think it will be a lot of fun! I'm going to commit to reading 2-3 of these and hopefully I'll beat that goal. I'm really excited about letting my bookish friends choose the books I'm going to (attempt to) read for this challenge! Please vote in my poll and let me know what you think I should read!
