Book-Tube-athon 2017

A wrap up post will be coming shortly for my progress in the 24-in-48 Readathon (spoiler alert: I didn’t make it 24 hours), but here is another intro post for another readathon!  I’m not a Booktuber, but a readathon is a readathon, and since I’m in the swing of things, I may as well keep up the reading momentum with a whole week of reading goals.

There are challenges in this readathon, so here is my TBR for this week:

  1. A book with a person on the cover: When Dimple Met Rishi.  I started it, but stopped when I realized I’m probably not going to like how it will end.  I need to go ahead and finish it.
  2. Read a hyped book:  Hunger.  I just got this from the Parnassus Book Club, and I’m really looking forward to it.
  3. Read a book in a day:  Paper Girls Vol. 1.  A comic in trade can definitely be finished in a day.
  4. A book completely outdoors.  The Identicals.  I have already started it, and by coincidence, I have already read it completely outdoors.  May as well finish it outdoors, too.
  5. A book with a character completely different from you.  Crazy Rich Asians.  Now that the trilogy is finished, I’m ready to start them.
  6. A cover buy: The Fade Out Vol. 1. I have to admit, the only reason I wanted to read this comic is because of the cool looking typewriter. 
  7. Read seven books:  Because I need one more book to finish the challenges, I’ve chosen Hourglass.  A bit of a cheat, since I’ve already listened to seventy percent on audiobook.

One of my favorite parts of the Book-Tube-Athon is the challenge videos people post.  While I obviously won’t be taking part in those, you can bet I’ll be wandering the Booktube community watching and commenting.

Have a good reading week!

Intro Survey

I haven’t gotten much reading done yet, but how about an intro first?

  1. Where in the world are you reading from this weekend? I’m in the Great Midwest. 
  2. Have you done the 24in48 readathon before? I’ve tried it many times, never really been successful. 
  3. Where did you hear about the readathon, if it is your first? A way long time ago I must have seen it on a book blog I followed. 
  4. What book are you most excited about reading this weekend? I’m looking forward to finishing The Identicals. Such a good summer read!
  5. Tell us something about yourself. I’m a knitter. Thank goodness for audiobooks!
  6. Remind us where to find you online this weekend. Right here on my blog or on my Twitter @BooksBeyondM
