My spring break is next week, so I decided it’s the perfect time to participate in a readathon. I don’t have any other plans for the week, but I may have family visiting for a portion of the week. I’m thinking about getting started on my books on Saturday, because if my family does come to stay for a few days, I know I won’t get any reading done while they’re here.
The Read-O-Rama Readathon has 8 challenges, with one being to read 7 books during the week. The 7 books I picked out for my TBR are based on the other 7 challenges.

I’ve never been so excited to participate in a readathon before! This one is going to be so much fun. #ReadThemAllThon is a three week readathon going from Sunday August 14 to Sunday August 4, centered around Pokemon. Check out all the details about the readathon and find out how to sign up at Read At Midnight. There eight badges, or challenges, to complete. We also pick a Pokemon, and for every book we read, badge we complete, review posted, etc., our Pokemon’s CP increases. The person with the Pokemon that has the highest CP at the end of the readathon will win a prize!
This is a tentative TBR. All of the books I chose are over 400 pages because I wanted to gain as much CP is possible. As the readathon goes on, if I’m struggle to get through so many chunky books I may switch things up. I also placed a big Amazon book order a couple days ago, so there’s a chance that I’ll change my TBR to include a couple of those. I’ll update this post if that happens.
If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen my announcement that I’m participating in #MHAReadathon this week. I was so happy to find this readathon, and even though it looks like a pretty small one, I’m really excited to participate.
That’s all folks! Even though I took a 20 minute nap at Hour 19 and ended up going to bed at Hour 23, I had a really successful readathon. I did get much more tired this year than last time, but I’m not sure what that was attributed to. Maybe it was the fact that there were a couple days during the week when I had insomnia and didn’t get much sleep, or maybe it was all the junky food I ate (I ate much more healthy snacks last time), or maybe I’m just getting too old to stay up all night!
Here’s what I read:
Like with last year, I’m going to be updating my progress every hour. However, I’ll only be publishing the update every few hours so that I’m not on my computer constantly. Newest updates will be at the top. Keep checking in if you’re curious how I’m doing 🙂 If you’re updating on your blog, leave the link in the comments so I can stop by!
Follow me on snapchat at busy_living to see more updates throughout the day!
Check out my wrap-up post here.
Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon starts in less than 13 hours!! 24 hours straight is a long time to read, especially when you’re also struggling to stay awake. I’m by no means an expert, but I want to share some tips that have worked for me in the past with long readathons like this.
It’s #Readathon time again! This is my second time participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon, and I cannot wait for Saturday to arrive. I had so much fun last April when I participated, and now that I know what works for me and what doesn’t, I’m hoping to have an even more successful Readathon this go around.
