I’ve recently discovered that read-a-thons are a thing. As an introverted book-a-holic, there is nothing more satisfying than participating in a public event from the comfort of my own couch.
The next read-a-thon on my radar is the 24 in 48 on the weekend of July 23 and 24. The goal, as you may have already guessed, is to spend 24 of the 48 hours of the weekend reading.
The website hosting the challenge is a northern hemisphere one, so the theme is all things summery. Here in the great land of Aus(tralia) it is perfect, chilly*, read-a-thony weather, so I have plans for snuggling with piles of books (well, digital piles of books) and blankets.
I’m not entirely sure what I’ll be reading yet, but Cockroaches by Scholastique Mukasonga, which I was lucky enough to receive through Netgalley, will be on the list if I haven’t finished it by then.
Good suggestions for read-a-thons are things that aren’t too heavy and are relatively short – heavy non fiction may make you tired, and short pieces will help engage you.
Keep an eye out here for my list, and you can sign up at 24 in 48 if you would like to join in!
*It’s cold enough that I require a jumper while inside.
