The Make Me Read It Readathon runs from July 9th to July 16th, starting and ending at midnight wherever you are in the world. It is hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley, and Ely @ Tea and Titles. If you want to participate, you have 11 days to sign up over here, and you can use the #MakeMeRead hashtag to interact with others taking part.
Since summer is well under way and I had to bump my Goodreads reading goal down to 50 from a 100, due to the time that college eats out of my life, I have decided to partake in as many readathons as possible. This way, I’ll be able to maybe get a head start on my reading challenge before I head off for my junior year- before textbooks and lectures become my life again.
I had never heard of this readathon before today when I came across Jess’s post (you should check out her blog; she posts quality!), and I thought it was such an ingenious way to read some popular books already on your TBR. Honestly, I have so many well-known books on my shelves that I haven’t gotten to because I’m scared they won’t meet the hype. But this readathon pushes me to do just that, depending on voting and what not.
