Hello Fellow Readers,
How is your week going so far?
It’s the end of the month, for me it means end of my freelance job. I am dreading September, when I will have to start applying for jobs again. So, instead of drowning in despair, I decided to join my first readathon. WOO-HOO! I was inspired by Lucy the Bookworm Blogger, who I consider Wonder Woman, because she joins and completes looots of readathons and I am like “Wow! How does she do that?”
I loved the theme of this readathon – I am a heavy coffee drinker – and it would allow me to write off many books from my TBR pile.
So, what’s the Coffee Readathon?
When is it: September 1-30
How to join: Fill out our Google form, HERE
How does it work? The goal is to read 7 books to fill up your Coffee Rewards card, and if you feel like it, to also get the three bonus stamps (explained more below). There are seven types of coffees which represent 7 prompts as well, and we’ve even been awesome and let you count some books for 2 prompts!
The Coffees/Prompts: There are seven prompts with their associating coffees, they’ll be listed below, and so will the bonus ones. So, read a book, if it ticks one of the prompts, you fill out THIS FORM and we’ll send you your updated reward card!
What do you get? A very awesome winner’s badge for your blog!
The Bonus Cups: These aren’t necessary to complete the readathon, they’re just for people who want to either read 10 books OR who have read the seven but some books matched not only the 7 cups but the bonus coffees as well. [This means that say you read a book by say, an Asian author that is also a spooky read!]
Struggling to think of books to fit the prompts? Underneath each prompt are suggestions/recs from us to help you on your way should you need it!
Look at the reward card! It’s brilliant!!
You can check out the prompts on their blog and Instagram account.
These are my picks:
This is perfect, because I was planning to re-read this trilogy anyway, as a 2020 reading goal.
Wish me luck guys! I will keep you posted on my progress and I hope you decide to join as well.
