Hello, lovelies! If you’ve been here a while you might already know what this announcement post is about (since it’s the third year this is being done), but if you’re new here hello! and welcome! Today I am here to talk about a readathon that I co-host with the wonderful Vicky over at What Vicky Read. We are back for the third year of End of Year-A-Thon, the last hoorah of readathons to get those books you said you were definitely going to read back in January. We’re here to help you add a few more ‘read’ books to that GoodReads goal of yours. If neither of those things are on your list of concerns, then for you we’re just here to give you a chance to read some books with friends before 2020 ends.
Let’s get into the details. End of Year-A-Thon will start on December 26th (at midnight in your timezone) and it will end on December 31st (again, at midnight in your timezone–Happy New Year!) We have five prompts this year that we’ve changed a bit. Feel free to use the prompts or not. This is a pretty flexible readathon, so you may combine as many prompts as you want. If you have one book that fits all five, great! Any kind of book will count, so grab those graphic novels, pick up your headphones and start listening to those audiobooks you’ve been meaning to start. Or don’t do anything of those things and just pick some books at random and read along with us!
Read a 2020 release
Read a book written by a BIPOC author
Read your most recently acquired book (borrowed, bought, gifted, etc.)
Read a book with a star on the cover
Read a book from a series you’ve already started, but haven’t finished
So, these are the prompts we’ve chosen. I will personally be choosing one book for each prompt because, as I’ve said in the past, I like to have options when I’m doing readathons because I’m a mood reader. I can’t wait to see what everyone will be choosing for their TBR’s. I’ll be posting my TBR toward the beginning of December, but feel free to post yours whenever and don’t forget to link Vicky and me so we can see it! I’m going to link some stuff down below so you can all make sure to get all the updates. Let me know if you’re thinking of participating in the comments!
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
