Hi guys! It has been a really hectic day today. We had my daughter and son’s birthday today and I spent the whole day yesterday baking and today we had quests here the whole day. But now I’m here with something exciting to announce!
I’m participating in Make Me Read It readathon again this year! I did this one last year also and it was very fun and really challenged me to read more. So I was excited to see that it was happening this year also.
WHAT IS THIS?
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/bookstagrammers 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.
MAKE ME READ!
So last week I managed to read four books during the week! So I’m hopefully able to tackle down as many books as I did last time. But of course there is one more kid in our family now and thus less time for me to read. Still I’m going to try my best at time management and make some more time for me to read. I can do this!
I’ve gathered all the unread books I have on my shelf at the moment (I have more coming in mail but I don’t think those will make it in time). There’s a total of six books so it’s perfect! There’s a poll at the end of this post so please go and vote for the one you would want me to read during the readathon! I will be starting from the one with most votes and so on. Oh, and I also have polls rolling at Goodreads and Instagram. So I will be counting them all together before this starts and post about my TBR.
If this poll is not working correctly in this page (it does in my editor but doesn’t when I open the actual site), please press the SurveyMaker link down the poll and it will direct you to the voting page.
