Last month I took part in Dewey’s 24 hour read-a-thon and I had a blast. It had been a long time since I’d allowed myself time to read, and I don’t just mean the odd half an hour here and there, I mean an actual solid length of time. I hadn’t spent a day in bed with a book for ages and it was so relaxing.
In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I’ve decided to take advantage of the two 3 day weekends that I have coming up this month (thank you May bank holidays) and do a couple of mini read-a-thons. I thought Sundays would be the best day to do them as I generally have things to do on the Saturdays, and with the bonus of no work on the Mondays I can stay up till the early hours. Therefore, the read-a-thons will be on the 3rd (tomorrow!) and the 24th of May, probably just going from when I wake up to when I fall asleep. I’ll be sharing my reading on my Instagram using the hashtag #bankholreadathon.
Here is my read-a-thon shortlist. I definitely want to finish Ready Player One and get to The Start of Me and You and Saga Volume 4. The rest I’ll just pick and choose from, dependent on my mood.
Please feel free to join me in either of the read-a-thons and be sure to put usernames for Instagram or Twitter down in the comments so that I can follow you and cheer you along.
