Hello friends! I’m really behind on my Goodreads Goal, so I’m going to focus on reading some of the shorter books in my collection for September. I have loads of ebooks that are novella length, so I’m hoping to breeze through several of those this month, as well as some of the many shorter audiobooks I have. I listen to audiobooks on 2x speed, so anything that’s 6ish hours or less, I can read in one afternoon during my commute home and then while walking my dog later.
Round 10 of Read-O-Rama runs from today until the 15th. There are 7 challenges, and I’m going to attempt to complete them all. I’m now on summer vacation until I have to start teaching summer school in July, so I’m hoping I’ll have the time to read seven books over the course of the week. Check out my reading plans below.
The spring Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is tomorrow! It’s my favorite readathon, and it’s unique in that everyone starts at the exact same time, no matter where you’re located in the world. For me, it goes from 7am Saturday to 7am Sunday. Check out the full list of start times here. I shared my tips for 24 hour readathons in a separate blog post a couple years ago, so be sure to check that out too if you’re participating.
Last round, I didn’t stay up all night, but I usually do read for the entire 24 hours, and that’s my goal again this round. In fact, I usually don’t even go to sleep on Sunday morning after the readathon ends haha! Most of the time I just power through the day and have a really long sleep on Sunday night.
There are some fun new things happening this round, including a group scavenger hunt, and a goal to reach 1 million pages read!

I did it! I made it through another 24 Hour Readathon!! I fell asleep briefly at a couple different points, but never for longer than 15 minutes at a time. Aaaaand the readathon ended 4 hours ago, and I’m still awake….
The readathon ends at 7AM for me so I usually dive face first into bed as soon as it’s over and don’t resurface until at least noon, but I’m strangely not tired today. I’m sure I’ll crash really early tonight to make up for it.

It’s readathon time!! I’ve been prepping for weeks, I’m so excited. As with years past, I’ll be updating my progress on this post throughout the readathon. I like to break it down by the hour, but I’ll probably only be updating the post every few hours so that I’m not on my computer so often. If you’re participating, leave me a comment your social media links where you’ll be updating your progress!
Be sure to follow me on Instagram too @bookstacksamber! I’ll be updating my story there throughout the day.
Check out my TBR here.
Meal prep! One of my favorite parts of #readathon!
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.
